Happy Birthday Cousin James

It was James' 5th birthday today, and we had great fun at his birthday party. Sorry James, though, that the only photo of just you that came out good was this one!


It's fair to say that Hannah, Thomas and Will all loved being at the party.


The red car and the blue car had a race...

Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton had better watch out in a few years time: Tom and Will have a need for speed!

Sunflower valley

Bob the Builder would be proud of us, as we managed to defy the odds and grow sunflowers taller than us again this year!

Happy Birthday Little Sis

It was Auntie Jan's birthday today, so we all headed out for a meal to celebrate. The exciting news that Auntie Jan shared with us all was that there's another new cousin on the way for Hannah, Thomas and Will. That will make family get-togethers even more crazy!


Looks like James is knocking back the vodka - just like his mum!

The sky is falling

A little thing such as 'no bikes in sight' doesn't stop our family from wearing bike helmets! Safety first in the Hurley House!

Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum...

Thomas performed in his class assembly today, which was the story of Jack and the Beanstalk with a twist. The children felt sorry for the giant, so they wrote their own ending where Jack was sorry for pinching the giant's gold! They all lived happily ever after!


And here's the letter that Thomas helped to write, from the giant to Jack.

On your marks...

It was sports day at Hannah and Thomas' school today, so the training has been intense over the last few weeks. Dad has been sharing all his tips and training techniques, but luckily the children ignored him and did quite well, instead!

Will the Garden Gnome

Will is fast becoming an outdoor person - he'd spend the whole day out in the garden if he had the chance. Especially when he's got Ebby the cat to keep him company.

Happy 5th Birthday, Thomas!

It was Thomas' 5th birthday this week, and he was able to enjoy two birthday parties - one on his birthday with the family, and then another at the weekend with his friends at Funtastic.

He wasn't that keen to get started on the day, though - maybe he's 5 going on 15...


If only he'd known that this delicious cake was waiting for him.


But he still hasn't grown out of the "boxes are more fun than the present" mentality!


He had loads of fun with all his friends at Funtastic.
