A visit to Devon

Last week Partner-who-loves-tea and I paid a visit to younger daughter, son-in-law-and-friend-who-loves-otters and baby Katie.

Katie had smiles for her Grandma.

And for her Mum.

But she wasn't quite so sure about the strange bearded creature....

Talk to the hand!

On Thursday Katie fitted snugly in her car seat and her Dad drove us to Stover Country Park.  Mum, Dad, Katie and Grandpa had a walk around the lake.  It was wet, or rather, extremely wet.  All Katie saw was raindrops on the hood of the push-chair.

Katie may be the centre of attention for the visitors but Roland was more interested in a parcel with paw prints on it!

And Misty had to cope with the indignity of being picked up.

All too soon our visits were over.  I hope it's not too long before we see you again, Katharine Rose.

P.S. A special thanks to Partner-who-loves-tea.  Since I am no longer able to drive she has to do all the driving and when we travel long distances it can be hard work and tiring.   Some of this week's driving was in the dark and wet but fortunately the snow that was forecast kept away.

P.P.S. Younger daughter - please don't forget to let me have the recipe for the lovely dinner!


  1. What a beautiful family, all of them! (All of you, I should say.)
    Katie looks every inch the happy, healthy baby she is, and I am glad you had the occasion to visit, spend time and take photos to share with us.
    Hats off to Partner-who-loves-tea, too; I don't drive, but I imagine it is no mean feat to do a lot of it in less than perfect conditions.

  2. Visiting the grandbaby must be a very special time indeed, i'm glad you got to enjoy that and hope you go again soon!

  3. A gorgeous baby - been hoping for photos. Thanks! Looking forward to some of the Lad soon, too. McG

  4. Photo number 8 is a real cracker.

  5. I'm one of those annoying people who go all mushy at the sight of a baby. Little Katie has me melting, such a happy and healthy looking bundle. Thanks to her talented grandfather, I'm sure she will grow up with a wonderful collection of portraits.
