Country Dancing,Chico and a BBQ!

We have had a busy weekend here :)
Yesterday we went to Hatfield House for the Herts Folk Dance festival as Holly's school were taking part.It started off really sunny and hot but thankfully cooled down and rained a little.It was a really lovely day :) We all took picnics and sat on our blankets watching them doing country dancing and maypole dancing:) They learnt new dances,did ones they alreday knew, and danced with the other groups.At the end,one of the organisers asked one of Holly's teachers how she got them all to smile so much...it's probably because they all do it just for fun rather than being competititve about it like some of the schools/groups there!


We then went food shopping before coming home and putting the pool up:)

Today Geoff was working so the girls and I went down to the lakes where there was charity Fun in The Park Day.We got there early-ish as it was suppoosed to be opened by Chico from the X Factor a couple of years back.I don't know if that happened as it was pretty quiet there but we saw him talking to one of the sound guys so the girls went over and got his autograph and posed for a photo! We didn't see him again after that ,although he was due on stage at some point later in the day.There was loads going on,and the weather was beautiful.There were Butlins Red Coats there with Butlins characters,hence lots more photos!,as well as craft stalls,live bands, etc. We came home about 2.30 as Geoff was om his way home from work and the girls wanted to go in the pool once he'd sorted the chemicals etc! We finished the day off with a bbq - yum :)I worked my food off by cycling round both the lakes once the girls had gone to bed ..polishing my halo!!
