We've watched a lot of the Olympics during the holidays and our kids really enjoyed watching the different events. Our DD Darcy loved watching the Equestrian and swimming events, the boys enjoyed the boxing, canoeing, gymnastics and athletics. They took to copying their favourite athletes and could be seen making hearts with their arms, kissing the floor or doing a 'bolt' everywhere...including Clumber Park.
During the summer inside the Walled Kitchen Garden they had a Gnome and Fairy hunt which was great fun for them.
The boxer is DH's favourite gnome, he's named him Master Terry after DS1's Karate teacher!
Here are a few of the photos DH took not just of the kids but of things around our day in Clumber..
Walking up towards the walled kitchen garden we found these bird houses put onto a tree.
The kids were fascinated and it even looks good as well as being functional.
Well no stitching to show this time as the school holidays have been mostly spent at Sheffield Dragons with the boys or playing in parks and fields as a family. Fingers crossed I'll soon have some stitching to show when they all return to school in September.
