The park, snow and the price of cot sheets

Yesterday we went to the park again.  It was probably one of the sunniest days we have had all summer.  There were lots of people feeding the ducks, playing football and sunbathing.  Jeremiah and Isaac enjoyed themselves and came back covered in sand as usual.
Isaac spent a lot of the time on the slide/climbing frame in the shape of a train.  Jeremiah spent most of the time moving too fast for me to take photos.

Today we played snow on a baking tray.  We got some toy cars and some of that weird soapy foam stuff and Jeremiah had great fun burying the cars in the "snow".  Isaac wasn't too keen.  He said it was messy so he watched from a distance, letting out a shriek whenever Jeremiah flicked "snow" at him.

I need to move Malachi out of the moses basket into the cot.  He still fits it it fine but I'm hoping that having the room to roll around will encourage him to do it more.  It's kind of sad though, knowing that when I put the moses basket away it will be for the last time.  I've washed the hood and the lining so it's all ready for the final photo.  I thought I'd buy some new bedding for the cot as the stuff I've got has been puked on and washed so many times it's looking tatty now.  When I looked on the mothercare website I was quite shocked at how expensive everything was.  £22.99 for a cot blanket!  Babies r us were charging similar.  I'm going to look on ebay.
