The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 15

The Easter holidays are here, although as we have been pretty much confined to barracks due to the car needing a new clutch (grrrrr) it hasn't always felt like the holidays. We did escape last Sunday, using Rollercoaster Dad's car to go bowling - the girls were very happy to beat Mummy if not Daddy. I have still been working so the girls have been with Dad or at friends some days but luckily the weather cheered up after Monday and even though we couldn't go anywhere much they have spent a lot of time playing outside and I have even managed to do a spot of gardening.

On Friday we finally had our freedom returned with the use of a courtesy car so we were able to go on our prearranged meet up with some old friends to Wilton House. This is a fab place for kids with a massive adventure playground and a gorgeous garden to explore. Today has been a quiet one though as Little Miss came down with a sick bug last night and is feeling rather sorry for herself. Still we haven't had one for a while so I guess it was due. I do hate vomit though - urghhh!

bowling a spare, MFA Bowl Chichester
Bigger Miss is action at the bowling alley - she even scored the odd strike and Little Miss discovered she could bowl without the guide thing (don't know what you call them!)

First camp of the year in the garden
Thankfully we've had some decent weather so even though we've had to stay at home the girls have had fun playing outside and we have had the first garden camp of the year! 

baby hands
One day we had a surprise visitor in the form of next door's baby  - we babysat her for a couple of hours much to the girls delight. She is gorgeous and really made me realise just how big my girls are now.
beautiful edible cherry blossom
In my wanderings around the garden I had to take some photos of the blossom on our edible cherry tree.

Fun at Wilton House garden, Salisbury
I love this one of my two and friends - looks like we posed them but we didn't. Wilton House is a great place for a day out and I took loads of photos so I really must do a separate post on it. 

For more half term fun head on over to the lovely the Boy and Me..

  4. i love the odd but very interesting shaped wall outside of Wilton House - it looks like it could be an album cover shot the way the kids are climbing up it and posing on it.
    i hope your daughter soon feels better to enjoy the final week of the holidays x

  6. Have you ever made your own DIY photo canvases? I think the last photo (and the pretty cherry tree flowers) would work well for this tutorial I found on on Pinterest today: http://designertrapped.com/2014/02/diy-photo-canvas-tutorial.html
