We popped over to mum's yesterday. She's going away and needed to show me how her door works as I'll be dog sitting for a weekend.
It was a gorgeous morning so we took her dog Freda for a walk. Mum lives in quite rural area, within 3 or 4 minutes of leaving the house we were walking through a meadow.
Fred loves walking Freda. He would make a great dog owner.
We walked past a beautiful farmhouse. It has a wooden horse sculpture in the garden.
Meg got tired - I'd anticipated this and brought the wrap, and she was happy to be carried (yay!).
Betsy picked wildflowers along the way, and had a turn with Freda.
Then the kids had a quick stop at the playground, and Meg walked the dog back to mum's.
Today we had a visit to Bekonscot model village. Fred has loved this place over the years, but now I think it's lost it's charm. I'm not surprised, and a tiny bit sad for the end of an era.
Betsy did this cool chalk picture when we got home.
