#1 Weston Sand Sculpture Festival
This years Sand Sculpture Festival is based upon a theme of celebrating the sculptures of the last 10 years. I had purchased a Groupon pass for us and it was a great value experience. I will post about this visit more fully next week and share some more of these sculptures - we did really enjoy the Festival. I have to say, in my opinion, the sculptures weren't as intricate as they have been in previous years and I do prefer a specific theme to the creativity. However, as a family day out the sculptures were enjoyable and fascinating none the less!!!
#2 Weston Air Festival
This annual festival takes place this weekend and we decided to coincide our visit to the Sand Sculpture Festival with the event to make the most of the experience. The Red Arrows unfortunately were cancelled today as the clouds descended but they are due to fly tomorrow. The above photo is from the display of kit planes who are self funded and had only been doing displays within the last year. They were of a great standard considering they were over 50% kit planes!!!
#3 Brother & Sister time
Bickering has been in full flow over the past couple of weeks between these two. Nothing serious just little annoyances being aired - largely I think due to tiredness and readjusting to being back at school after the half term holiday. I find they always need a bit of time to readjust once they are not with each other 24:7.
This photograph captures a lovely moment from earlier today though. They were sat laughing, chatting, picking grass seeds and throwing them in the air whilst also watching the different air displays overlooking the sea front. It's good to remember these moments during those times of readjustment when my patience is tested!
#4 Tree Climbing
Little Lady's places of choice seem to be a) in a homemade den and / or b) up a tree. These don't seem to change. Either place is a happy place for her and she physically seeks them out.
#5 Park Play
We had parked a little way off the sea front - so as to avoid the volume of traffic and people. After leaving the hub bub of the main arena we decided to sit and enjoy one of the town parks that we were walking back through towards the car. The boys played football and Little Lady climbed trees. I sat happily on a park bench watching the activity - sometimes watching them and sometimes casting my eyes skywards to the various planes and helicopters in flight. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
So those are my Five things. Simple enough but they made me very happy. I do hope you have a wonderful Father's Day for those celebrating tomorrow. The boys are off to a football tournament and Little Lady and I are planning to peruse the lovely shops in Wells (where the tournament is taking place). We've then been invited to a BBQ with friends so fingers crossed the weather stays dry.
Enjoy your day whatever you are doing. Take care until next time,
