Grandpa's birthday gave LMC and I an excuse for a day out today, so we met my parents at the National Trust's Wimpole Estate up in Cambridgeshire. The weather was kind to us, despite the very threatening clouds, and we were able to have quite a long wander around with her buggy.
The gardens at the hall were looking fabulous at the moment and the team of gardeners were certainly doing a fantastic job. The walled garden was also looking spectacular and their display of squashes was great. Lots of lovely autumn colours and combined with the slight chill in the air it made me realise just how much the year is progressing.
LMC seemed to enjoy going round the farm, even though at times she didn't appear all that interested in actually looking at the animals. The pigs fascinated her, the goats scared here but the sheep seemed to be a favourite. My highlight of the day had to be a highland cow running away scared when se cried!
The biggest problem with seeing so many new things in a day is that it can tire a little one out very quickly!
