Anyway, we had plenty of kissing cousins today, as Ava met her second cousins Izzy, Ruby, Phoebe, Harry and Lucas!
We had a lovely time catching up with family, having a yummy lunch together (where I was introduced to "Birds Cobs" - midlanders should apparently know what I'm talking about!) and playing with the dolls house. It was very cute to see how Ava's bigger second cousins looked after her...
There was great interest in Ava's multilingualism, which led to a very funny conversation when Ava started throwing her sandwich on the floor...
Me: Ava, nein!
Ruby (2 years old): nein!
Me: That's right, Ruby... that means no!
Ruby: No it doesn't... its a number!
Don't you just love kid's reasoning?!
After lunch we packed up all the kids and headed to the farm! We paid £1 for a bucketful of food and headed round feeding all the animals, looking at giant bunnies and having a sit on a tractor! Ava was in her element, making all the appropriate animal noises, and all three of the big kids loved getting up close and personal with the barnyard animals! (Although one cow tried to get a little too friendly which didn't go down too well with Izzy!)
