The next big thing

We've had a few new additions to the household since I last wrote.  OH took the children fishing.  They all seemed very excited as they set off with their Heath Robinson contraptions - a bottle cut in half, wire handle, long pieces of string, filled with gravel.  I decided to leave them to it.
