teddy bear picnic

Little Possum and I had a little tea party in the garden yesterday afternoon. I don't know whether there are fairies at the bottom of our garden, but there were certainly a lot of assorted stuffed toys.....

First we had our refreshments - water sipped daintily from the little porcelain cups and white marshmallows (2 each.... one for each hand...). When everyone was fed and watered we played games. First up was leap frog and everyone had to participate. The next activity was dancing /jumping on the trampoline for LP and playing around with the camera for me.

We even had time for a modified version of Whack-a-mole with me being the Mole under the trampoline. LP was the whacker..... but thankfully she only tapped me on the head.
I can imagine the sight of me crawling around under the trampoline, occasionally pushing my head up would be bemusing to any passers-by. Our neighbours must have stopped wondering now after years of nude trampolining (by the kids, I hasten to add), Jedi doing their light sabre workouts and the odd night out stargazing.
I decided to see if I could take a photo through the trampoline mat.... and it actually worked.
And here's a self portrait by LP...... I really like it!


  1. I can't get the picture out of my head of you playing whack the mole lol! :o)

    what great pics, you're such a fun mum.

  2. I think kids, trampolines and cameras are alot of fun together....i'll have to try under the trampoline next!
