Summer 2015….One

That time of year again, when the children are all mine for 6 weeks.
No school runs. Just fun, some sun making memories.

I did this last year, and really enjoyed writing about our Summer.

So here it is. 
First weekend in, so a short and sweet one. 
Children broke up on the Friday, as an inset day the following Monday, so thought we’d make the most of it.
Hubby took my son for a hair cut, whilst us girlies took a walk into town to meet them. 
A big thing for me as per previous blogs, I’ve not walked far in a while, plus I am (now) 5 weeks post c-section and sterilisation, so a little slow. 
But felt wonderful, if not a little sore, to be walking. 
We arrived into town to our local town street fayre, in celebration of 45 years of the Chard Museum being open. We didn’t stay long for the fayre, but from what we saw it was fun.
Huge bubbles, and a town crier. 
Favourite part for my son and eldest daughter would be…

Splat The Rat of course, my little boy has been desperate to do this for a while, 
it is often at the fetes we visit for the majorettes, but we don’t always have time. 
He loved it.
 Free too, thanks to the Baptist Church.
Great Fun.

Then a promised visit to a car boot sale.
Where the little lady found and fell in love with these.

The afternoon, was part two of the Chard Festival, an evening occasion. 
A parade that kicked the evening off, 
a small one, but the children loved it!
Would love a bigger version!


 Little lady enjoyed her first fairground ride!
Screams when coming off..
Some dancing 

By the children which they absolutely loved. 
This little one’s first summer festival too. 
(4 weeks plus 5 days)

The ferris wheel was beginning to look pretty in the darkened skies.
A Beacon was lit but after we had left.

Fun with friends.

A trip to a National Trust venue.
Montacute House, thanks to our lovely friends. 

Baby wearing daddies. 

Beautifully posed daddies. 

Stunning house and gardens. 
House used in the television series Wolf Hall. 

 Was a fabulous day out.
The children and adults were suitably worn out.
High recommend it here. We’ve (hubby and I) only ever visit for the Montacute Carnival, 
which has to be our favourite carnival/parade of the year.
Will be definitely returning.
First few outings done.
With a library visit to round it off.
