A Happy Mothers Day for little Riley
Yesterday morning daughter Amy and her husband Ryan came home from New York
We told Riley we were going to the airport to look at aeroplanes.
He was quite happy with that. A drive of just over an hour.
Of course we saw some planes and he was happy.
Waiting by the doors for his parents to come out of International arrivals we told him someone special was coming. Funny little man thought that it was going to be his cousins.
When Amy and Ryan came through the doors, he was amazed. He never said anything, just looked at them. Of course we passed him over the barrier for his parents to have a cuddle.
Just look at that smile.

He kept a tight hold of his Mummy's hand as we were leaving the waiting area

Still holding on to her as we walked to the car.
It has been very quiet at our home today without him.
Not to worry he is back on Wednesday and doesn't leave again until Thursday night.
He is a gorgeous little man.
