Tagging Along

It's been a pretty quiet weekend in our household, but Tag has tagged along with us. On Sunday, he came to church. Of course, it's not all that exciting because he can do that at home with his own family, but he was a very good bear. Here he is waiting with all the bags and things we had to take with us.

He met our missionaries, Elder Smith and Elder Maynard.

He was very interested in the missionary board, especially when he spotted the name of one of our family members. (Roderic served in St. Petersburg from 1992-1994.)

Tag was very reverent as he waited for sacrament meeting to begin. Unfortunately he wasn't allowed to go to Primary.

The next day after school was the school's bouncy castle afternoon. It's a fundraiser for the school, and all the children paid £5 for a wristband and could then go on all the bouncy castles. Here is Ceri showing off her wristband with Tag. There's already a long queue at the ice cream van!

Tag wanted to have a go on one of the games with Ceri, but decided it looked too scary, so he let Ceri go ahead and play with her friend Isabelle without his help.

Ceri and Isabelle then went on this bouncy castle game.

Afterwards, everyone was hungry so we stopped off for fish & chips at our local chip shop.

Ceri had chicken and chips. Here is Tag thinking how delicious it smells.

What a fun couple of days Tag has had! The schools break up on Friday, so after that, he'll have lots more adventures to enjoy!


  1. It’s always fun to see what LDS churches look like in other places! The kids said, “Hey, those missionaries look just like ours!” We will be taking Charmin with us to church at some point (we’ve had so many other things going on I didn’t want to overdo the posts) and he will get to go to Primary since I’m the chorister and I RULE!! BWAHAHAHA!

    Just kidding. Kind of. But he will get to go to Primary. :-)

    The bouncy castle day looks like so much fun! We love doing bouncy stuff here too. And Ceri’s chicken and chips looks mighty tasty.

    The kids wanted me to tell you that here in America we call that thing outside the ice cream van a “line” not a “queue”. But I do like the sound of “queue” better (and it’s such a nice-looking word as well). So tell me, do you stand ON queue or IN queue?

  2. You stand in the queue, or you queue - it's a verb too. The British are very good at queuing, it's almost the national pastime. Wherever a group of people gather - bus stops, shops, ticket booths - they will form an orderly queue even (or maybe especially) if they don't know what they are queuing for.
