I spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday with my extended family, for reasons involving two birthday parties and a musical. I won’t go into details here, but we can talk about it in the comments if you like.
Here is a photo of my mother and my niece, Elke, who is now a confident walker, developing her vocabulary, and will be 18 months old later this month.
From later in the weekend: three generations of women on the marimba.
Left: My young relatives at play. Right: A community room in the town to which Dad has contributed dinosaurs.
I got some lovely photos of Elke with Leah, the middle child in my cousin Robert’s family. Here they are on the swing.
And here they are on the golf course.
And that’s all. It really was lovely to catch up with everyone.
