Late Afternoon

   It's a wonderful late afternoon in Willow Tree Village. The sun is low in the sky and many of the villagers are preparing dinner. Let's go and see what some of them are up to.
    Over at the Beechwood Hall, the Walnuts are having guests, the Mulberrys and the Brighteyes are over for dinner. Let's go inside and see what's happening.
   In the kitchen, Yardley Walnut is busily cooking dinner for her family and their guests. Mmmm it smells delicious.
  Over in the dinning/play area, Mae Mulberry is setting the table. Look at that yummy cake for dessert.
  Quietly, at the bottom of the stairs, Belinda Brighteyes is playing with young Alyssa. They are trying to build a giant tower.
 While in the sitting room, Elma Mulberry is looking through the magazine rack. He seems to have found one that he likes.
Motike Boarhound is Ralph's favourite explorer. He's showing Ike his poster and book. Ralph wants to be like him when he grows up.
 They have to be very quiet though, because little Alfie is fast asleep in his bed. His mother will probably wake him up when dinner is ready.
  Meanwhile, in the parent's bedroom, Cedric is dressing his son Ambrose into his PJs. Then he will be ready for bed once they have had dinner and dessert.
 Over in the children's bedroom, Peter Brighteyes is looking for the girls to tell them that dinner is almost ready.
 He finds them on the porch, nibbling away at some cookies. I suppose Peter will have to remind them that it's not a good idea to eat before dinner.
 Well, why don't we leave them to eat their dinner and see what else is going on in the village.
 Over at the Watermill Bakery It's closing time and Christopher Appleblossom is just cleaning up. However, the Keats family have made it just in time to grab a loaf of bread for breakfast in the morning.
 Down in the village square, Gordon Doughty is just locking up his Hamburger Wagon when Maurice Chantilly walks past on his way home from the park. The two friends shake hands joyfully.
   Meanwhile at the Chocolate's house, the Maces family are over for dinner. No cooking tonight though, as Harvey and Spencer have just returned from the bakery with plenty of fresh rolls and sandwiches for everyone.
    Whilst this is all going on, the babies are playing a game of Hide and Seek. Young Creme is it, but she can't seem to find anyone. Can you?
Look at what delicacies await them once dinner is over. Yummy!
  In the kitchen, Freya is helping her mother put away the ice-creams they bought home from the Ice-cream Cart.
  Baby Breeze is asleep in her cot. I wonder what she is dreaming about?
Down in the bedroom, Coco is playing with Mark and Nicole Maces. They can't wait for dinner to be ready.

   Well, what a lovely visit to Willow Tree Village this has been. Be sure to come with us next time. Bye!
