Aeroplanes!!!

I love it when traditions get carried down through families, when we do something with Monkey that we remember loving as kids. I love it even more with grandparents carrying things down things that they loved doing as kids. My Mum and Step-dad (Aka Nanny & Pops) were round on Monday after Rhyme Time and we were all playing in the garden (well, I was sat watching mainly).

Pops said he wanted to do aeroplanes with Monkey, and I wasn’t sure what he meant to start with, but it turned out they had done it before on their day out with Monkey.  It is something Pops remembers his Granddad doing with him as a child, and how much he loved it, and he wanted to carry it down and do it with Monkey. Which is just lovely!

Monkey took a tiny bit of encouragement to start with (he is a 2 year old after all, and takes a bit of encouragement with most things at the moment!) but then he absolutely loved it.

It was hilarious, and a tiny bit hair raising to watch, but seeing the glee on Monkey’s face was priceless.

And of course hearing the “Aaaa-gain” repeated over and over afterwards until Pops gave him another whirl..

The angle of this is weird and I know it looks like Monkey’s leg is at an odd angle but I promise it’s not!

and another…

Just a lovely bit of fun in the garden :)

  1. This is the sort of casual afternoon fun I remember from my own childhood. I do wish someone had captured the fun on film for me just as you have here. A delightful post. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

  2. Such cute photos and I remember my Grandpa doing this with me. We haven’t done it with Mads yet, although Mr E has done some pretty scary acrobatics with her! Lovely these little traditions you remember from your own childhood isn’t it? :)

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
