Don't worry, he didn't break it! But he did take lots of pictures!
The photographer is my nephew Joshua, and he's actually not quite four, but will be in a few weeks. He's with us because my sister Cath and my brother Andy, plus Rachel, Joshua and Chloe are visiting this week. It was interesting to see the photos Joshua took, as it showed what interested him. It was people first, of course, such as his Mum and Dad with Tracy:
My sister Cath:
His Dad and his uncle Mike:
and his sister Chloe, sleeping in our firewood shelter to get some shade:
but then he moved onto objects that interested him, like where the water came from:
his name written on a stool with charcoal:
part of the firewood shelter:
The base of an oak tree (remember this is all from a height of 3 feet, so the top of the tree is a LONG way off, and maybe not interesting because of that...):
and finally some lifting tongs:
When he wasn't taking photos he was either toasting marshmallows:
or looking scary!
After lunch we went to the other side of the wood to pick up some more materials for our firewood shelter. There wasn't room for everyone in the car, so Andy and Joshua rode in the trailer, which was great fun!
Oh, and before I forget, Cath had a go driving the car as well, up the woodland track, as she doesn't have a driving licence so can't normally have a go.
Over the other side of the wood, the foxgloves are looking amazing now:
But after admiring them we got down to work:
Even Chloe found she could help:
and Joshua found he was easily strong enough to get involved (and earned himself £1 to go on a fairground ride later as well...)
One last pic - Joshua's been looking for things he can take back to his pre-school class to show them what he did over the holidays, so he was delighted to find this pheasant feather to add to his collection of stuff:
That's all for now...
