Tuesday Photo Challenge: Birthday

Frank has set the theme of ‘Birthday’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge and invites us to take creative licence with the subject.

So naturally I am taking it absolutely literally, with this image of one of our twin grandsons on the actual day of his birth. They were very premature  and very small, as you can see. They spent a good few weeks in intensive care before they were allowed home. You should see them now, though, eleven years later.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Toys

My grandson picks out a tune (kind of…) on the new toy keyboard that he’s just got for Christmas.

Little Feet

My twin grandsons were born very prematurely – and tiny. Even after a couple of months they were still very small, as you can tell from this image.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Promise

It’s hard to think of any promises more important than wedding vows.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Memories

This week, Frank asked us to share a photo that encapsulates special memories.

Memories of family are always important, of course but we will also always treasure the ten years we spent living in Abu Dhabi.

This image encapsulates both. Taken in the Corniche Park, here with Madame is our darling daughter and our twin grandsons, on their first visit to Abu Dhabi back in 2008.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Story

The latest WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge wants a picture to tell a story (doesn’t every picture?).

Here is storytime from Grandma for the twin grandsons. Not sure that they pay quite such rapt attention now that they’re ten going on eleven.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Message

A month or so ago, during the school half-term holiday, we went with our ten-year old grandsons to an indoor climbing centre.

This photograph was taken with an (old) iPhone, so not the best quality, but it certainly conveys a message to match Frank’s theme for this week.
