London calling....


Yesterday we all took a trip into London for the day :)We went on one of the open top bus tours hopping on and off when we wanted.The ticket also included a free boat trip too so we made the most of it!Our first stop off was Hamleys where the girls were in their element!We then hopped back on the bus where we stayed until we reached the Tower of London,which is where we picked up the boat trip back up to the Embankment.I was really surprised at how quiet it was...I expected it to be heaving being August.We then boarded the bus to Buckingham Palace ,the main place that Holly wanted to see :) It was a bit of a trip down memory lane for me as I used to work not far from there and often sat out on the grass outside to eat my lunch!From Buckingham Palace we walked (the longest walk of the day!)through Hyde Park to the Diana Memorial Fountain.Holly really wanted Em to see it even though we will be back there next week for Anna's race.We arrived home tired but having had a fab day.

On Tuesday we went over to Willows Farm,our usual summer hols day out! And it's another place that was really quiet...maybe everyone was out uniform shopping?!Anyway, we spent ages in the Maize Maze ,watched the Daft Duck Trials,went gold panning and held the guinea pigs and the bunny rabbits.The girls were even happy to stroke the new sheep dog puppies they have as well as the older ones :)
This weeekend we will just be chilling and sorting out stuff for school next week.And maybe,as it's supposed to be warm the girls will get one last splash in the pool before the holidays are over!
