Mr P has to head abroad quite a bit with work so the kids are used to him not being around some night.  When he is away the odd night or two that is one thing but a few times a year he heads off to the US or Asia for a week at a time.  Then, daddy going hits home a bit more.  It's a struggle for everyone but the week goes by quickly enough ... and the one thing about daddy being gone for a whole week that is exciting for his return (apart from his own reappearance) is that normally, a little gift is brought back for each of them!  Whilst not wanting to overindulge the kids by any means Mr P does like to bring something back.

This trip was all about making.  A particular favourite of Ava's but Jonah is often a whizz at getting in on the crafting act too ... two wooden mask and a tube of luminous paint was all it took to make these kids even more happy when daddy got back!
