Photo a Day 22 May 2012

22 May 2012
 Claire had agreed to swap shifts with one of her colleagues yesterday so I had Alice for the day.  Yesterday afternoon got really warm and my Dad thought he'd come and put a few plants in the garden for me.  Alice wanted to know where (Great) Grandpa had gone so we went out in to the garden as well.  She was absolutely delighted when Grandpa filled her little watering can for her so she could play in the water.
 She splashed her hands around in it saying "splash, splash" 
 I think in this one she was marvelling at the fact that Great Grandpa had by now filled the watering can a number of times for her ;o)   Isn't it wonderful how a little bit of water can make a child's day!
I have to add that by the time she'd finished playing with the water she was absolutely soaked and I was glad I'd stripped her down to her vest before she started - at least she had a dry t-shirt to put on afterwards :o)
And you may have noticed her little nose was looking quite red in the above photos.  While playing outside a bit earlier Alice had tripped over on the patio and, unfortunately, her nose took the brunt of it :o(   Luckily it doesn't seem to bother her and it certainly didn't put her off going out again.


  1. Looks like she had a great time.

  2. She's so adorable, even with a bumped nose.

  3. Adore that first photo!!! Poor lil' nose. So many bumps and bruises at that age.

  4. Water play is so enticing for the little ones - it looks as though she has had a sensational afternoon out there with Great Grandpa!
