August ended and September started with trip to London. My youngest brother lives in south London and loves having Angus and Isla to stay. We visited them last year at the same time as a treat for Angus. Last year we had a whole day in the Natural History Museum with Angus indulging his passion for all things dinosaur, animal and amber related. This year... we did the same thing.
Okay, that is not the complete truth! Angus, Isla and I went down on Thursday with Ken joining us on Friday after work. On Thursday afternoon we took the underground to Paddington and I took the compulsory photos of Angus and Isla with Paddington Bear. He doesn't remember the first time he went with Denali and Kera when he was only 18 months old.
|Exploring the bear: what is he made of? Who made him? Why is he here? Some things can be analysed too much; just enjoy!|
|"That's a Pleiosaur. I have heard of Mary Anning (lady in the picture) - she found lots of the early dinosaurs...." etc.|
|I have no idea how you ride a horse when you have no legs but clearly you do - well enough to take bronze. Incredible.|
|No don't laugh - we all did! The comments and looks of incredulity when this pair came on were predictable but we all had to retract our jokes when they came fourth. They were superb and only missed bronze by a few points.|
Sunday was spent playing: water, swings, climbing frames, tennis and just enjoying being.
