family kaye

And here it is, the first of my holiday scrapping sessions. 
I used the latest offering from Crafty Templates with a few bits from my stash. 
Im really happy with this layout. Minimal journalling required.

And here's the obligatory holiday shot.
Perranporth beach.

Raspberry picking

Yesterday we went on a spur of the moment trip to  nearby farm park which had opened a new falconry centre. The birds were amazing,  and they even had a pair of golden eagles which were huge!
We did a bit of raspberry picking although a certain person needs talking to about quality control, and we had a picnic on the grass.

A little while ago, the lovely Sian ran a postcard swap to get the mail flowing. I tried my hardest to find cards from my town but the tourist information place had closed! So a trip to paperchase happened.
These are the cards I received. I'm sure there was another but I can't find it!

Going on a dinosaur hunt

We went to a local farm park today, and their theme for this school holiday was Jurassic Farm. So when we went on a tractor ride,  we had to look for dinosaurs!

Grandad turns 90

What a special birthday! None of us can believe he has gotten to this age as he has lots of health problems. It was a great afternoon and grandad did really well.

Bourton on the Water

I love spur of the moment trips.

Last Saturday was actually the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, but seeing as it was £45 per adult we decided to give it a miss. Instead we headed off into the Cotswolds to Bourton on the Water and visited Birdland. The enclosures were a little tired looking but Eleanor loved it, especially the Kookaburras laughing and the 'Ingos -flamingos.
We had a lovely picnic next to the river, and E decided she wanted to paddle. So I took off my sandals, climbed into the FREEZING river and waited. Where she dipped her toes and declared it too cold. Meanwhile my feet had gone numb!!

Sometimes spur of the moment is the best.

Little buddies.

Based on the latest chic tags sketch. Eleanor has known Alfred since they were 6 weeks old and they're a bit like an old married couple!
