Wot a luvverly weekend

I love these little bluebells that middle nut illicitly picked for us when we were out for a walk on Sunday.  He was at great pains to point out that they were for me and daddy to share.  So we both look at them, sitting on our kitchen windowsill looking all pretty.
So....here are the edited highlights of our lovely, long weekend.  Taking the boys to school this morning really was a bit of a shock to the system - we've all still got our holiday heads on.  We've had three weeks of at least some of the family being off school (you might remember me mentioning previously that Mr Nut is a teacher) and what with the weather being so fabulous, it's almost felt like summer!
Food featured prominently for us (scoff scoff):
It had to be a Victoria sponge on Friday, in keeping with the royal theme of the day. Wasn't the wedding just lovely?  I actually cried when she got out of the car - she just looked amazing.  (Sigh)
We went for a picnic with some lovely friends on Monday.  They forgot to bring any actual picnic food with them, but luckily they did have some sweeties.
Phew, thought we were going to go hungry for a moment there...
We had another picnic on Sunday, just us this time.  We went to a beautiful reservoir about an hour away:
The boys made us laugh so much.  They're just the best of friends and really, I can't imagine one without the other.  I can get a bit damp-eyed and squishy just thinking about them messing about together.  Inseparable.
Hmmmm - can you see any rocks to throw in?
Oooh, yep, hang on, I've got one...
Great! Stand back!!!
And now they've got another little buddy to hang out with:
