When we visited the grandparents we picked these gorgeous daffodils, grape hyacinths and forget-me-nots in their garden. Each day has been sunshine perfect just like these.
While we were there I remembered to take a picture of the tray cloth I had made for my mum for mother's day.
As we've had such warm sunshiney weather this week we went to buy the Bun's some springtime shoes. We went to a fantastic shoe shop called Lollipop. Eldest bun chose pink converse trainers and is very proud of them, little bun has some sparkly shoes which she loves. Everytime we visit this shop we wish this lollipop was real, very Willy Wonkerish.
Moving on to the middle of the week we went to a smaller version of the county show for kids called Spring Fling. There was a huge red Massey Ferguson tractor in the middle of the main shed, but this little pea car got our vote. At 6ft 1" I don't think I'd fit in it, but I can dream. It's my favourite shade of apple green.
The Bun's held pigeons and rats, saw sheep being sheared in a hilarious show called the Sheep Show compered by a New Zealander and bumped into lots of their friends. When we went to visit the cockerels who were making a hullabaloo we saw this corker. Two of our ladies are Light Sussex and I thought they might go a bit weak at the knees if they saw this handsome chappie. So I'll print this off as a pin-up for the henhouse.
Today we fancied visiting a different type of animal. Thankfully one that is fibreglass and a bit of paint.
We haven't been to the Dinosaur Park for a couple of years now and had forgotten what a great place it is. It's set in woodland, we love the walk winding down to a large open area where there is a farm set in a ancient walled garden. Running down paths you never know quite what you'll bump into next.
But the best and most miraculous part of our day was at the farm. We visited all the animals one by one. When we got to the sheep we saw a mother suckling her newborn and about to have her other lamb. We all stood there speechless watching with delight as this little one finally pushed themselves out and she set about cleaning it up.
Just remembered I've been meaning to add this gorgeous award from Beki and I didn't want her to think I was being rude by taking so long. I've already said a big thankyou to Beki so that bits been covered. I know I'm meant to pass on to seven others, but I find this bit hard as I really love reading all the blogs I list and more that I forget to list. So all please take a piece of this little girls hug to your blog.
