Great hilarity at the Slate Museum in Llanberis. Fun stuff, slate!

Choo choo! We caught this steam train back from Beddgelert to the campsite - the campsite actually has its own halt!

Thanks to Kati (Dot’s mum) for taking most of these pictures and, more importantly, for sharing such a delightful holiday with us.

    One doesn’t notice the magnitude of the changes while they’re going on, so it’s fun to look back and compare and realise just how much he has altered. After all, when we were in NZ he wasn’t talking at all, though we were trying very hard to detect English words in the babble, and he couldn’t climb the stairs – now he climbs over the back of the armchair and is dangerously close to escaping from his cot. He’s learned all sorts of other things, too – he can fit lego together (sometimes), play with a shape-sorter (again, some shapes are easier than others), say sorry by kissing or hugging people, take off his own cardigan, and sing the first word of the Bob the Builder song!
