My week that was...

The first week of the summer holidays has flown by and we have had such a lovely time and thoroughly made the most of the sunshine!

The sun came out and so did the pool and garden toys. We spent the majority of the day playing in the garden and just soaking up the beautiful weather. After dinner we headed to the country park for a lovely evening playing too.

We headed to the shops first thing to stock up on bbq food and to the library to get some books for the summer reading challenge. The afternoon was spent playing in the garden again and in the evening my parents came over to enjoy dinner alfresco.

There was a free science day at our local leisure centre so we went to that in the morning where the mini mes had fun making rockets and doing other fun activities before a picnic lunch. In the afternoon we made egg box bugs and went to another event at the library where the kids got to make slime followed by a bike ride.

The kids put on a mini magic show for me which was lovely to see. In the afternoon we watched a movie before they went to their dads house for the night.

We took the bikes to the reservoir and the mini mes rode the 2.5 miles around while I jogged walked along. In the evening we went out for a family meal and enjoyed the beer garden and the sunshine.

We went to Camp Bestival and got to see Shrek, Dick and Dom, Mr Tumble, The Gruffalo, Rizzle Kicks and many more acts. The weather was fantastic and the Mr ended up looking like a lobster! We stopped off for a burger king on the way home which was a nice change, hadn't had one in ages.

Quite a chilled day. The kids played with a load of new playdoh and with their new bubble wands in the garden while the Mr and I did some housework and watched the Olympics.

That was my week that was. What have you done over the past 7 days?
