^Just the best three people on the planet^
This weekend, we headed down to watch the London Marathon and have lunch with friends. It was so fun and it was great to cheer on the runners and wheelchair racers at the 25 mile mark. The kids loved the atmosphere with the charity mascots and cheering. We met up with our friends on the Southbank for lunch and it was warmer enough to sit outside-spring is here!
Sometimes when I visit friends who live out of London and see all the space and beautiful scenery, I nudge Sam and direct him to beautiful houses set in acres that we could buy in the middle of nowhere. And then we hop on the tube and in 30 minutes, we're standing by Big Ben and looking over the river in the most city I know. So, we probably won't be moving...ever.
My handsome boys on the train home. By this point, Harry was two hours beyond his usual nap time but he didn't stop laughing and smiling all day. Sam has been working so hard lately, luckily its nearly time for our anniversary trip away! It is the first time I will have left the kids or been away from them for more than 24hrs but...it is also the first time I'll have been properly alone with my husband for about four years!

Here they are when I caught up with them (don't mind Leila's crazy hair-do, she has quite unusual and forceful opinions into how the hairband is supposed to sit on her head.) They are getting on SO well at the moment, long may it last! Leila keeps looking into Harry's eyes earnestly and telling him 'we'll be best friends forever, right?' to which he nods, equally earnestly, without really understanding what she's saying at all.
I was so worried about this Easter break. I thought she'd get bored, that they'd fight, that she'd miss her activities but we've just had the loveliest time. After they got over their bugs last week, they've been in such happy joyous moods. We've played outside in this glorious sunshine, had an al fresco pizza, lots of play dates and made some new friends. Leila has been entertaining Harry and I with her stories (dinosaurs that come in the night to bite her fingers) and Harry has been charming us with his kisses and giggles. I am actually going to miss her SO much when she returns to preschool and I know Harry will too.
