Tom and Kim have five grandchildren ,so the garden is full of lovely things for children to play on.... Toby, Zac and Lucas could not believe their eyes!
While Toby and Zac were still deciding just where to start Lucas was straight up the slide steps and getting ready to go down. Socks was at the bottom barking in excitement and worry at seeing Lucas so high up!
Socks starts trying to climb up the slide from the bottom but his paws won't keep a grip!
" Get out the way Socks! " calls Lucas " I'm going to come down very fast!"
Socks gets to his paws and rushes up to Lucas and starts licking his face , checking that he's ok!
Lucas giggles " Stop it Socks.. ha ha " he wipes his face " I'm getting all wet! Stop it.. "
"Nuff Socks ! " says Lucas sternly " Let's go play on something else! Come on.."
Mean while Toby and Zac have been playing on the see saw ! "You are too chicken !" taunts Toby
" Am not!" "Are Too" "Am Not " Are too!" " Just you watch then!" says Zac annoyed.
Slowly Zac starts to get to his feet balancing on the see saw, holding tightly to the pole.
Toby's impressed until Zac says " Well come on then YOU stand up too!"
Toby gulps " Meee ! "
"yes you!" says Zac smugly " or are you chicken ? " He starts making clucking noises until Toby moves and so does the seesaw , making Zac go quiet and hold on tighter to the pole!
Carefully Toby gets to his feet then starts whooping " We are the champions!"
Lucas is gently rocking back and forth in the baby swing with Socks enjoying the breeze on his ears!
Toby and Zac move on to the Trampoline ! Bounding up and down , yelling and laughing as they fall over and then get up and bounce some more!
Toby falls down and Zac who was trying to do a roll cannot move for laughing so hard that he's suck with his head on the mat! While Toby cannot get back up for laughing at Zac !
Once they manage to stop laughing and get up they find that Lucas is on the top of a Castle , Toby starts to climb up the slope holding onto the ropes.
"My castle ! " states Lucas " Clear off ... Toad !"
But Toby keeps climbing
Just for a moment Lucas throws himself down and starts to throw a tantrum then stops as he hears Toby puffing and stomping up the side.
He gets back up and shouts down at Toby and Zac, accompanied by Socks barks of agrement
" Go way Toady! " shouts Lucas " and you too Sacky "
" Hoy! " puffs Toby " Who you ...calling....Toady... you... you little.... devil ... wait.. till .. I.. get .. up ...there.. "
Zac decides to climb up the other side while Toby carries on up the rope, seeing Toby getting closer Lucas gets ready to use the slide for his escape !
" You.. wait.. there !" says a tired Toby " I'm... going.. get.. you.. "
" Toady Toady !" giggles Lucas moving backwards onto the slide.
Zac almost at the top as Toby stands up.
Toby throws himself forward trying to catch hold of Lucas as he starts to slide but he's just too late!
Toby watches as Lucas hits the bottom and falls onto his back winded.
over reaching Toby suddenly slides down himself to land on the grass at Lucas's feet.
Zac looks on in horror at the two silent bodies of his brothers....
Slowly Toby and Lucas sit up, Socks rushing up to Lucas to check his is okay!
Zac still in shock listens as Lucas says " Toady ! "
" Devil " retorts Toby
then they both start giggling and trading insults , while a disgusted Zac starts to drop his arms and turn back to climb down , having heard Auntie Kim , call out about coming and getting some cake! those two can just miss out!
