The one where it's bank holiday weekend.

This bank holiday weekend just gone, we decided to make the most of the weather while it's nice. The weather has been quite unpredictable lately, so we though we'd make the most of it!
We decided to take a bus trip to castle park. It's a huge park that has many fields, tree's and a huge play area for the kids. There were also a few bouncy castle's there, too! A few family members tagged a long which was lovely.

The boys of course enjoyed a good ol'e game of football and even Ellie joined in! They like nothing more than playing footy, they are football crazy, bless 'em. And Ellie having two big brothers, she's a huge football fan, too.

My brother took a long a picnic which we all enjoyed. It was very sweet of my brother and his girlfriend. We sat on the bench eating sandwiches and cakes followed by an ice cream (or in Charlie's case, an ice lolly). Just in time to cool them down from all the running around! We also got to feed the squirrels which are so very tame, one was even eating out of Charlie's hand. Ellie was all "Why can't we keep it as a pet.. It can even sleep in my room" Haha. I explained to her we can't keep squirrels as pets as they're wild animals, I think she finally understood lol.

The little's also played on the play area, Ellie enjoyed the sandy play area best, playing in the sand was great fun! Charlie of course preferred the climbing frame while Harry stayed on the field playing football and tag with my brother/Harry's uncle, which he thought was fab.

We finished our day by having a treat - Mcdonalds, which we don't do very often, the kids enjoyed it a lot, they even got a balloon each! On the bus journey home, we were all tired and found it hard to stay awake.

We had a wonderful day and can't wait to go again!

  6. This is how Bank holidays should be and it didn't rain like it did for us! I can't believe the squirrels eat from your hand, they are not nearly so friendly here. McDonald's is a treat here too, mainly because the nearest is half an hour's drive away! Thank you for sharing with me on country Kids.
