Where our boys Play

Hello Blog friends and followers, thank you for popping in.  A very quick post today, still enjoying time with friends.  Tonight is the BIG Party, so Glad Rags laid out and ready.  Could take some time getting the "face" ready!!!
I have mentioned a few times that our Grandsons are very lucky to have a wonderful playground at "The Ranch"
Thought I would show you a couple of pictures:-

The "burn" or stream
The "lane" at the Ranch
More water,  they do wade with their wellies on right down the length of the lane.  The burn then goes through a pipe along the side of a field coming out at a little pond.
Think you can understand why they have so much fun.
They also learnt to ride their bikes in the lane.  Taught by the ever patient Grandpa

Thank you for your visit I really appreciate that you take time to call and leave all your wonderful comments.
Till next time

  1. Looks like a perfect playground. My German Shepherd would love the burn too, he likes to sit in water,(unless it is in the bath)
    Lovely day too.
    Enjoy your party tonight. (Careful with the Baileys though)

  2. That does look like a brilliant playground!
    Have a lovely weekend

  4. Hi Patricia, I would love to have a playground like that, no wonder the boys adore coming to you.
    Enjoy your party, and the 'dressing up' is all part of it, enjoy !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. Hello Patricia, looks just the place for two adventurous boys.
    Your face is lovely, and I just know you will look soooo glam, have fun, hugs Kate x

  6. Just right for boys!! Ours were blessed with being brought up in a safe environment where they could explore 200 acres unhindered and let their imaginations run wild. Sadly very few have that experience these days and are glued to a virtual world in front of a screen be it TV or tablet or phone. Hope you have a lovely time xx

  7. Hello flower, was back tracking and seen your pretty flower bouquet that the wee lads gave at the wedding. ORIGAMI KUSUDAMA flower video on youtube has your flower and how to make it again. Sorry sticking big nose in but just if you would like to remake your beautiful bouquet. I love your "shoes and handbags" Patricia, they are pretty and a wonderful way to match for a wedding when you can't find the ideal alternative. I was just discussing with my friend about strengthening my Izzy bag to make it match my outfit, now i wonder if it would work with the shoes as well???
    Love and crafty hugs

  8. Hi Patricia,
    The 'Burn' looks like a fabulous place for the children to play in,
    I think I saw a few ice cubes floating by in that water though, although a good place to cool your wine!
    The lane, well what better place to learn to ride their bikes etc, you are truly blessed having such fantastic surroundings for them to adventure in, while all the time they are in sight and safe no wonder they always want to be at your house!
    Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful haven of peace and tranquillity, that is until the boys arrive!
    Love and hugs

  9. Your lane and burn are a great playground. Every child should have this on their doorstep!!! Hope the party went ok. Hazel xxx

  18. Morning Patricia,
    Hop the party went with a swing. A wonderful playground for the boys.

  19. Hi Patricia,
    Second attempt to blog.
    The playground looks fabulous, I bet the grandsons (and Grandad) love playing there!!
    I feel as though I'm in a time warp because I'm still trying to find out about the party. Why was it held?? Anyway, I hope you had a ball.

  20. Waht a wonderful place for children to play and much better than sitting in front of a computer screen for hours on end. This is the sort of play I had as a child and such a healthy environment has to be good. We live near the beach now and that too is a wonderful place to explore and see the delight in a childs face at each and everything they discover.

  21. I’m saying farewell to blogland and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your wonderful creations, lovely friendship and sweet comments all this time. It’s been a real pleasure being part of this amazingly beautiful blogging community and I will surely miss you loads, but life is taking me elsewhere. Thanks for being such a dear blogging friend and for sharing your fabulous creativity, we’ll be in touch somehow, somewhere! Sending lots of love and hugs your way, Ira xox

  24. Hi Patricia, that looks like a little boys paradise to me, and Grandma's testing ground for which washing powder works the best for natures stains!

    Hugs Erika. x

  25. Caught a glimpse of the title on this post as I saw your later one, and had to come back to enjoy these beautiful scenes. How fortunate your boys are to have such a scenic playground. Must be quite an adventurous time for them to be in such an area. TFS

  26. Hi Patricia,
    what a fabulous place to have a play and tumble.
    When I was growing up and enjoyed my summer holidays
    with my grandparent near a farm, the forest and a small brook.
    I have some wonderful memories from happier days. Thank you for sharing your surroundings were you live
    hugs Maria xx
