A Birthday Treat For Daddy...

... was a trip to Ravenglass and a ride on the steam engine.  Not just any old ride mind you, Daddy was invited to ride up front on the foot plate, needless to say he was one happy chappy.  Here are some pictures of our day:

Pip was desperate for a charge around in the car park after the longish car journey.

A welcome cup of tea prior to our steam ride.  Mummy especially was grateful for the warming brew, as she was still feeling slightly queasy from the car journey!

Benedict and Nanna H sharing a happy moment.

Pip fascinated with Grandad's watch.

On the move.

A hopping on and stopping off point, on the way back a walker joined the train at this point having completed his trek.  I bet he was glad of a sit down!

Pip munching on a crisp at snack time!

A very happy Daddy with the engine driver Peter.

After our epic trip we made our way to Millstones restaurant and craft centre for a well deserved lunch.  Sadly there was not much on offer regarding a gluten free diet, they did not even have baked potatoes on the menu!  So we settled for our usual emergency request standby and they managed to rustle up egg and chips for me and the kids.  The others fared better with there choices, Dave and Dad had Cumberland sausage casserole, mashed potato and vegetables and Mum had beef goulash with mash and veg.  We had our usual obligatory mooch around the craft centre and although we did not buy any crafts we were fortunate to spy some activity books for Benedict and Pip.

A very happy Daddy at the end of a busy day!
