A couple of friends and their gorgeous little boys spent the day with us at Eastwoodhill arboretum for their easter centennial celebrations. It was a lovely day and we had a picnic lunch. The arboretum was beautiful but I got a little distracted with taking photos of our darlings. Hopefully we will being going again in a couple weeks and I will take some photos of the amazing trees, especially now the stunning autumn colours have fully developed.
Here is Tessa contemplating her empty marmite sandwich container wonder where they all disappeared to. I made hot cross buns for the first time, which everyone enjoyed. One of the other lovely mums bought the most gorgeous scrummy homemade jam to go with them. Peach and Vanilla pod, honestly this is the best jam I have ever tasted, it was like summer captured in a jar. I must get the recipe, hopefully I will be allowed to share it with you.
They are very good at 'sharing', which is good except for all the colds getting passed around. Oh well I guess it is immune system building, as long as the colds aren't too nasty.
