She made me a delicious lunch of baked salmon with fresh asparagus, green beans and sugar snap peas, served with a glass of wine, and fruit for dessert. After lunch we set off to the woods for some pond-dipping, crafts and general frolicking in the woods.
My friend came up with the idea of all the boys dressing up to go out. Great idea - the problem was everyone wanted to be either Spiderman or Batman, the cat costume and pirate costume were balked at. So my boys made do with Ben 10 and Spiderman T-shirts.
