So it's been 10 days...

...since my last post & alot has been going on!
If you read my last post you will see that we were tackling potty training my 2yr old daughter, Caitlyn...well, hopefully I'm 'not speaking too soon' but it seems it has been a success in the no.1 department, although there are still a few issues - the first being going out without a nappy (although this is more down to me than Caitlyn - I'm not quite brave enough yet lol) the second is the no.2 department. We thought we had it sorted but over the last couple of days we've had an 'accident' & today it seems as though she's holding it in :( ...do you have any advice for me?
Moving on to more pleasent things lol, it was our 5th wedding anniversary yesterday :) my mum stayed over so she could look after Caitlyn & Zach while hubby & me went out for a lovely meal - it was so great having some time alone for a couple of hours! We got home at about 10pm & the kiddies were fast asleep in their beds - it was bliss lol!
Today we went to Tonbridge in Kent with my mum, my nan, my two aunts & uncles & two of my cousins and we took Caitlyn & Zach swimming - it was Zach's first time! And I'm pleased to say he seemed to quite like it! There weren't any tears from him but Caitlyn wasn't too happy...it's been a long time since she was last in a pool. We've now decided to take them both alot more often (although only to the local pool & not all the way to Tonbridge lol - it's about an hour's drive from where I live). After swimming we went to a huge park that had loads of play equipment spread out all over the place & both the children throughly enjoyed themselves - they were totally worn out by the time it was time to go home & slept all the way home in the car!
So in between all this I've managed to do a lo - it's my first double page spread! I used 'Fun In The Sun' by The Digi Twins over at Digital Candy which looks like this...



I also used a template by Yin of Yin Designs & a folded corner template by Brandy Murray at ScrapGirls & here it is - A Great Day!



The journalling reads:
I don't think I will ever forget this day Caitlyn. It was a warm Sunday in September and we decided to take you to Edgerton Park and you had a run around with Daddy. I could have loved to have joined in the fun but I was 7 months pregnant with your brother Zach, so I stayed behind the camera most of the time. After the park you had your first visit to the beach - you just loved toddling around in the open space and you were fasinated by the sand worm trails in the sand. On the way back to the park we bought you the purple ball (your favourite colour) and you loved racing Daddy to get to it first! Then you went on the swings uintil we decided it was time to go home.
It was such a great day!

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, although I might re-work it at a later date as there is something that's bugging me about it but I don't know what it is yet...it may be because I'm not used to doing lo's with so many photos & so few elements...I'm not sure.

Anyway on that indecisive note I'll finish this long winded post & thank you for reading! Please let me know what you think of my lo :)
Until next time,
Ellie
