My parents, who also have a caravan, came for most of our first week. We didn't tell the kids they were coming and they were amazed to see Grandma and Grandpa (and dog) arriving.
Graham and Penny are a lovely couple from Yorkshire that we've got to know as they come at the same time as us. They had six dogs with them. The one in the picture is Croft, a huge but young and energetic Chesapeake Bay Retriever. (The black one is my parents' dog Vida). These six dogs are thoroughly trained and we have a long running competition to see who's better behaved - their dogs or our kids!
In our middle week, three caravanning families from our church joined us. That meant we had ten children among us to roam around having fun. This allowed us grown ups plenty of chat-time:
Him Indoors has an uncle and aunt in Oban who have a bed and breakfast. They're into cycling and cycled out to see us one day:
Him Indoors's brother, sister-in-law and niece joined us for our third week:
