Warning - lots of photos!
We enjoyed a walk along the canal and through the local Nature Reserve about a five minute walk from where we live. It was really cold but perfect weather for an afternoon walk. We really don't make the most of what's on our doorstep but I'm going to try harder this year especially when the summer comes. I can walk with Flynn whilst Ethan is at school and in the holidays Ethan can bring his bike or football. Here are a few photos from our walk:
We went to London for the day in between Christmas and New Year. Ethan hasn't been before so we thought it'd be nice to take him so he could see the sights. As you can see from the photos we had a lovely day and we were able to visit the main sights - London Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Harrods etc. Ethan really loved going on the tube though and it was one of the highlights of the day. He enjoyed going on the Metro in new York but didn't get to spend long on there like he did on the tube. We finished the day with dinner at Pizza Express and a little shopping in Knightsbridge. Here are some photos from the day:
New years Day I had a family party. We usually go to my Grandma and Grandad's on Boxing day and get together with all my family. It is a lot of work though getting it organised and the food done etc so i did it this year but on new Years day. It was great and everyone had a lovely time, I'll be doing it again next year.
Here is Flynn getting a bit of sleep before the party - I love this photo of him.

Flynn catching up on sleep during the party - I think he looks so peaceful here.
Flynn spends a lot of time smiling now and it's lovely to see. It's especially nice to see him react to us and his favourite musical toys. Here are a couple of photos of him smiling.
