As we are sadly at the end of our lovely summer break I wanted to quickly share a few photos with you all.
Rich found this cool chestnut carving on one of the walks through Grin Low and Buxton country park.
We also visited Poole’s cavern during our visit and got to see some amazing natural formations.
Sam & Emily got to enjoy a bit of Dino golf with Rich while I had my last couple of days at work.
Taking full advantage of my absence, Rich also bought them Nerf guns… Eeep.
Sam & Emily started learning a bit of crochet and spent a good few hours doing a pretty amazing job of making their first granny squares.
Emily grew two lovely sunflowers… these did so much better for not being in our garden, as it was hard for the slugs to find them 2 floors up!
The kids have also been super helpful and even made us all a lovely pasta salad for lunch one day.
We’ve played a number of board and card games, Catan, Star munchkin, Gubs, Ticket to ride, Pandemic, Risk etc.
We also got to visit Liz & Myfanwy which was so lovely 🙂
And on the way back from Wales we stopped into the Royal Mint too.
Then to finish a lovely summer we all spent the day at Lyme park. It was great to be able to visit the house again and spend a few hours wandering round the beautiful grounds and park land.
