The First of Many Visitors

Today is my big sister Nikki's birthday (Happy Birthday, Nikki!!!). She is turning 25, and tomorrow she and her 16 and a half month old son, Dylan are coming to visit us. It has been 8 months since we have seen her and Dylan. They live on Herm, a small island off the coast of Guernsey, which are part of the Channel Islands.

She is quite close to France, since the Channel Islands are between England and France. On clear days, Nikki can actually see France! When I say she lives on a small island, I mean she lives on a SMALL island. It is only a mile wide by a mile and a quarter long!!! It is a tourist island, and there are only about 60 year round residents! Even though Herm is close to France, Nikki and Dylan are getting a boat to Guernsey, then going to Guernsey airport, flying to London, then they are getting a connecting flight to Bordeaux, where we are going to pick them up. Bordeaux is about a hour and a quarter away from our villa. Dylan is a blondie, with curly hair. He LOVES Peppa Pig, and he is starting to talk. He also just learned to walk, and he is very independent. When Nikki gets here, I want to show her the stables, where I spend most of my time. I also want to show her the tennis courts. There are many drives and fields where we can take walks. We have a courtyard that Dylan can play in, and we also have a small area next to the pool that is fenced in. It is grassy and has 2 swings and a rope ladder that Dylan can also play in. I love kids, especially babies, and the last time we saw Dylan, I was the chief babysitter, and I would be fine with doing that again, even though it is going to be harder to keep track of him since he can walk and run around. I can't wait to see both of them, and help them pick out some tres chic outfits to wear to the town!
