A last gasp of summer

I have been trying to cram in a last few outings before Scott starts school. I have always been expecting the good weather to come so had been holding off various trips until the sunshine arrived. However, I came to realise that it just wasn’t going to happen so decided we would just have to go for it with our planned trips.

We went to East Yonderton Farm last week to do some fruit picking.


Luke was a bit fractious during most of the picking so it wasn’t easy, but Scott soon got the hang of it by himself.

SAM_9367 SAM_9365We ended up with more fruit than we could possibly eat, so I made a tasty raspberry crumble:


Scott got his Daddy up to the burn for a go and it was cold! Billy’s face was a picture as they plunged into the apparently icy depths!

We finally had our day of summer last Thursday so we had an end of the holidays treat to Heads of Ayr. I was a bit anxious about how it would play out as Scott would need to mainly play himself while I had Luke. In the event, things turned out well as Scott met a friend from nursery and they ended up teaming up for most of the day.

I think we now have Scott all suited and booted ready for school:


Whether his mum and dad are ready is another question!
