National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, Part 1

Osian wanted a day out for his birthday treat this year, so we went to the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu in the New Forest, with Nannie and Grandad. I think he had a great time!

Osian wanted me to take his photo in front of the Bluebird:

Osian with a Lego caravan. And Eleri and I in front of the Outspan orange car, which is something I remember from when we came here when I was little. I was sure that you used to be able to sit in it. Osian and Eleri both decided to pull faces.

Easter egg hunt!

We had an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday (toy eggs and very small chocolate ones!). They both enjoyed hunting round the garden and filling their baskets.

Badbury Hill

We went to the Badbury Hill Egg Hunt over Easter, along with nearly everyone else (although you can’t tell in these photos)! The bluebells were out too.

The view across to Farringdon and Folly Hill:

There was a great tree for climbing over:

Junk castle

Osian loves junk modelling. He often pounces on things I’m about to put into the recycling to make something out of it. He made this during the Easter holidays, with hardly any help. Note the Welsh flag and the garderobe on the side!

Langland

We went to Wales last weekend for a couple of days. We went to Langland on my birthday for our first visit to the beach this year. It was beautifully sunny for a couple of hours in the morning. Both Osian and Eleri loved the beach: rock-pooling, making sandcastles (with Eleri knocking them down), and jumping across holes.

Osian doing a big jump!

Bunches

After reading ‘Monkey and Me’ by Emily Gravett, one of our favourite books, Eleri decided that she would like bunches like the little girl in the book. So for the first time I was allowed to tie her hair back. She was very pleased with her bunches, but they did only last about half an hour!
