Family Day Out

It is my 40th birthday tomorrow and we had planned some family days out but as usual the great British weather hasn't played ball! So we had to change our plans and find somewhere to go today where we could go inside if it rained, we chose Kingston Lacey which is a National Trust property. We actually had quite good weather, not much sunshine but no rain so we managed to have a lovely walk around the garden and it gave me a chance to get some lovely photos of the girls and my nephew Josh.
Tree huggers!

A while ago I took some photos of Rebecca against a lovely old brick wall, this isn't such a nice wall (I seem to have a bit of a thing for nice walls at the moment!) but I thought it was worth a few photos and I really like this one of Emily.

Emily outside the lovely old house.

On our walk we came across this gorgeous field of daisies, it was like a maze with pathways all through it so we didn't have to walk over the flowers to get in amongst them. It was a photographers dream and I could have spent ages taking photos of the girls there. There were so good all day and let me take loads of photos and didn't complain once!

Emily is very attached to her mobile phone!

Josh loved the long grass in the field but he thought it was their garden, his comment was "seriously, they need to cut the grass!" He does make me laugh.

Tomorrow the plan was to go to Brownsea Island but again the weather isn't meant to be great so not sure what we are going to do now :(
