In a cloud of dandelion pollen we cycled out to one of the many playgrounds in town last Sunday and enjoyed a blissful lunch out in the sunshine. After the kids had finished running about like lions, devoured their sandwiches and gulped down their juice, we cycled past the allotment to pick up some lettuce and rhubarb. On arriving home, the sun had really decided to put in an appearance, so we decided to drive out to the beach.
Of course, as soon as we got there, the sun decided to disappear and it was quite chilly with the wind, but it was fun nonetheless. While I protected the fort and did some more knitting, the kids and Steve went off like proper beachcombers and came back wit a bag full of treasure, which will be used to decorate some picture frames and mirrors in the weeks to come.
Yesterday, we braved the wind again and visited one of the many farms in the area on Open Farm Day. We all love cows (especially the little calves), and when the farmer actually has a bouncy castle, a fake cow to milk, facepainting and free banana milk - well, who wouldn't want to spend a few hours in the hay?
