This week has passed in such a blur, Lucas was off pre-school all week with chicken pox and while it was lovely having him home we couldn’t really go anywhere so we were all fed up with being stuck indoors. That meant it was a quiet week but we did lots of colouring and stickers, Nanny brought us some magazines to keep us going and we must have had every toy out at some point during the week. On Saturday we made it out for a quick walk round the park, it was such a beautiful day and I loved the walk in the fresh air. I’ve really missed getting out on the school run and will hopefully be back to it this week.

They were all getting a bit tetchy Sunday afternoon so I decided to pop them in the bath, always a good way to keep them entertained and we had tea in our pyjamas. They have so much fun in the bath together now and while it was light I took a few photos. I can still remember the twins looking tiny in their bath supports, kicking their feet in the water and Lucas peering in looking at them. Now they all splash away together, fight over the toys and tip water over most of the bathroom. They might not always appreciate it but I love that they have each other, they are so close in age which means that they can go from hugging to squabbling in the blink of an eye. It’s not often I get a photo of all three together and I love their expressions in this; it sums them up perfectly.

      That would be fantastic! It is so difficult to get a photo of all three though I’m not sure even one a year would be achievable 😉

    That’s a gorgeous photo, and they’re all looking so grown up! I hope Lucas is better now and that the twins don’t suffer too much with it when they get it xx

    Aww they’re so sweet all three together – I hope the chickenpox has given you an easy ride and fingers crossed the twins will have it even more gently. It seems to be doing the rounds again at the moment – for everyone who didn’t have it two years ago anyway!

      They do seem to be everywhere at the minute, Lucas was covered but actually hardly camplained, just needed extra cuddles which was quite nice! xx

    Lovely shot of the 3 of them. Must be chaos with 3 in the bath at once. It’s messy enough here just with one!

    This is such a cute photo. I bet the floor was wet with all their splashing.

      Always, we have to keep the bath quite shallow otherwise we would be flooded 🙂

    Lovely picture! I love the calming effect a bath has on children. They come out happy and cheerful no matter what mood they were when they got in.

    As they get older the age gap seems smaller doesn’t it? They look similar ages in the bath! You have three beautiful boys x

    What a great idea – we haven’t done a pre-tea bath before. Looks like they are having lots of fun!
