Bob and Cathy stayed with us for years while their kids were growing up, but then, as often happens, when the family are all off at University and starting careers, the Family Vacations sort of go into hibernation.
But now, as often happens, they are back -- along with the Grandchildren, to start the cycle over. We're thrilled to see them, and to meet Katy's husband Boru, and their charming son Charlie.
We're also pretty chuffed to find Bob out there, early in the day, on Grandpa Duty.
John never shirks when it comes to vying for the Grand-dad of the Year award either. We caught this shot of him coming home to dock early in the day with Marcus and grandson Tim. A little engine trouble meant Tim had to get to work with the paddles, but it was all easily solved. And even with a 'Spot of Bother' in the mechanical department, there is NOTHING to beat an early morning adventure on the Lake of Bays with Grand-pa!
