April for us has been all about being at home but being outside. A whole month with no rain. Piran discovering a love of being outdoors. Mr C having a helper in the garden for potting up and watering. Tidying up and making the garden child friendly. Picnic dinners on the bench. Ball games and bubbles and mess. Friends and alfresco lunches and afternoons hiding in the shade of the umbrella. The sound of ice cubes against glass. Watching as the garden springs to life and new and beautiful things appear every day. Of Piran spending all day from breakfast until bedtime in the garden and then crying when we tell him it is time to come in.
But my favourite memory of this April will always be three toddlers and a box of dirt.
