So, let's see... We went to Drayton Manor (for free) because there was some funding left through Dad group, which some of the volunteers got permission to use until it runs out. The children all really truly loved it, but it felt a bit flat to me going back as a grown up (and one who isn't too keen on busy noisy bright commercial spaces - and doesn't do queues). The best part of my entire day was seeing rabbits in the embankment when I took Rowan on a train ride.
Jenna was fearless. And tall enough to go on all the BIG rides. Scary! This is my little tiny daughter, UPSIDE DOWN, on a ride that a crowd of 15-16 year olds were too scared to go on. I remember going on this particular ride 17 times in one day as a young teen, funny how perspective shifts in ten years eh?
Father's Day Card by Jenna. :)
Solstice celebrations, and the first meal I remember really enjoying in a long while, I could have eaten a ton of those fresh peas (and I think I very nearly did)!
Home made blackberry leather, dipped in dark chocolate. Heavenly!
A walk around a local reservoir.
We found lots and lots of tiny frogs, this one needed rescuing from in the car park toilets and returning to the waterside!
Lovely summery days. And - last but not least - evidence of the dramatic clothes-putting-away activity of this week!
