Well, it is a beautiful day so we have been for a wee trip out. One of the groups that I attend each week (a local Bible study for Mums with a creche!!) has organised activities each Thursday, there is an outdoor thing for if the weather is good and a rainy day alternative. There is a nominated person in charge each week to make the call on whether the weather is good enough and to help you find each other on arrival. What a great idea, so today we went to a castle. We didn't go in, just played in the grounds, it was free and although we met with friends we would have been able to go alone if we wanted.
Here are the girls enjoying a picnic (picnics will feature heavily in our summer activities!)
N has an odd expression on her face, I am not quite sure what that's all about
Miriam got brave enough to go for a bit of a stomp around
Then the girls ran off and chased each other, I sat down with a cup of tea from my flask. Perfect!
N is still recovering from having chicken pox recently so at one point she requested she have a "rest"
Before we left I got N to pick up a few leaves, on getting home she has stuck them on some paper
Once they have dry we will use some left over toilet roll holders to make ourselves some trees!
