Cheltenham snowboarding.

I'm just a big kid at heart and snow is still VERY exciting. I can even get up early....like 8am, easy! That is early for a photographer may I add.....especially one with kids.

Today I went out snowboarding on the local hills. It was the second day of such an adventure, just this time my friend came with me and took a few pics. So here we are enjoying the snow, rather than listening to all the doom and gloom spouted out by the press.

The MAIN problem with snowboarding on a hill, rather than a purpose built ski resort is the serious lack of chairlifts & the decidely short runs. 20 seconds down.......5 mins walk back up.

Snow Angels - still entertaining even in your 30's. I realised today you're never too old to enjoy snow.

Two mins to catch my breath at the top, then back down for 20 seconds of high octain adrenaline. Well, maybe more like a little jump and a couple of turns.

Meanwhile at home Ali was looking after the kids. Barney as per usual was sleeping.....in fact I found they all had an afternoon nap. The decerning eyes amongst you will also note this can't be Barney sleeping at home, surely he'd be too hot!?. Indeed it's not. It was taken a couple of days ago when we ventured out with him in these 'arctic' conditions. He was therefore kitted up in this super fury eskimo outfit, that is just ohhhhhhh soooooo soft. Gotta get me one of those.

Two babies.....

Below is the rare sight of Barney with his eyes open. He appears to have my 'sleeping' genes, so if he's not having milk then he's asleep. Pretty good really as it does make life a little easier. Needless to say, sleep deprivation at night is still the case though - doh! This means my wit when writing this has officially left me....wait till a good day with 8 hours sleep though - I'll be like a kid on Redbull & Haribo.

For Daisy, the best thing about having a baby brother is all the 'stuff' associated with babies comes back out again. You'd presume Barney would be in the mosses basket, using the cot, boinging in the bouncy seat, wearing the baby clothes......but no, Daisy has taken it upon herself to test out all baby paraphernalia instead.

With presents galore at the moment, we've more wrapping paper than WHSmith. Daisy thought she'd remind us just what the best present is you can ever have - ta naa Daisy!
