Like, checkout out this wipeout!

I like the offscreen 'responsible adult' voices.

An amazing early evening trip to the beach to inspect a bunch of rockpools. We would have found more creatures had Henry listened to my zen advice, instead he insisted on splashing about and scaring all the crabs!

A trip to the local zoo.

And the amazing forty five minute ice cream

The Home Guard.

August 1939, the threat of war looms large.

Good job Captain WeeHen is on the job.

Quick march!

Inspecting defences.

As you were.

A walk in the woods

Three Rivers Race 2009

This year we modified our spectating of the Three Rivers. Avoiding the chaos of the lunchtime start we took our time and spent the late afternoon watching the carnage at Potter bridge.

Henry spent the first half an hour quietly muttering "oh dear, oh dear, oh dear" over and over as more and more boats fiddled with expensive bits of gear and near misses became increasingly common.

Unfortunately we didn't see any spectactular crashes but there was plenty of action and ice cream to keep the crowds amused.

On the swings!

Last summer we decided to only post pictures backed with radiant blue skies. This was to create a slightly unfair impression of England being a country basking in delicious summery weather without any cares.

This summer we really don't have a choice, the weather of late has been ridiculously generous and, like many others, we have grabbed every opportunity to get out there and enjoy ourselves.

Anyone who has ever tried to capture that 'child on the swings' moment will, I hope, appreciate the following shots.

We just spent a few gorgeous days at Chestnut Cottage, Saturday was pancakes day!

If he looks a bit spotty that's because he's just survived an outbreak of pox. 

Proper medieval pox.

Didn't put him off mixing and stirring.

Or his milk.
