We spent a morning at the cinema to see "How to Train Your Dragon 2", not really mine or Pip's cup of tea, too noisy and the computer generated images were over bearing. It is a miracle that Pip did not suffer any nightmares! Benedict, Dave and his mum however enjoyed the film and it did the job of killing time on a very wet Tuesday morning! Pip did have her treat that afternoon when the gals spent an afternoon crafting:
On Wednesday we took Dave's mum to a hospital appointment in Kendal, followed by a visit to Holker Hall. We had thought we might partake in a halloween craft but it was getting late, so after a quick mad dash around the playground we all enjoyed a treat in the cafe:
Conversation time with Nanna.
Yesterday was an at "home" day. I think the constant being on the go and the packing, shopping and cooking had taken its toll and I slept on and off throughout the day. I did manage to rally after tea and Dave and I went to visit some family members that we haven't seen in a while, it was lovely to catch up.
Today we had lunch with Nanna and Grandad H, popped by to see my parents in the afternoon and then made the most of the dry weather and spent some time at the beach:
A silly beach "selfie", goodness knows how anyone manages to take a sensible shot of themselves! Also extra long arms are needed to get everyone in the shot!!
Playing a game of getting around the course without touching the ground and he succeeded!
Working out a climbing tactic.
By now it was nearing tea time, so a sandwich and bagel tea was the order of the day and we lit our halloween pumpkin. Mary was of course delighted with the funny face and kept saying pumpkin, pumpkin! We left the lantern with Kath, so I am hoping it will get another lighting before the weekend is through:
