Uncle Romeo and Auntie Juliet decided to have a combined birthday party this year. It was a great idea. Juliet had everyone organised to bring an item of food and it worked out beautifully with minimum fuss. It was a VERY hot day so the children only spent a very short time in the sunshine.
After a little bit of ball throwing, Little Bear, Dragon and Monkey spotted Romeo's open shed. Of course it was probably full of exciting things just waiting to be discovered.
Behind the shed is the fence and behind the fence is the neighbour's yard and in the neighbours yard is a big dog with a big bark. The dog could not get into Romeo's yard, but the kids didn't know that. They also didn't know that the dog wasn't actually inside the shed. He just sounded like it.
As I took the last photo, Monkey burst into terrified tears and I put the camera down and gave him lots of cuddles. It's tough being a granny :)
When it was time for cake, scary dogs were forgotten. Little Bear didn't want to miss out on blowing out the candles even though it was not her birthday.
