Last week we travelled to Cumbria to pick up a bicycle for Ben and we stayed overnight.
We enjoyed the high nets at Brockhole Visitor Centre.
In Penrith, we clambored over the castle ruins.
And finally, we visited the wonderful Walby Farm Park near Carlisle (and yes, the slides were great fun!).
Back home, it was time to try out the new bike, and Ellie her new roller-skates.
In July we we went on our summer holiday to stay with our family in the Czech Republic, near Ostrava.
We spent our time enjoying the warm weather and spending time with family.
While we were there, we went on a few day trips. We visited Ostrava’s castle, which has an eclectic range of exhibits.
Nearby, we also stopped at the rather unique “Fairytale Ghost Cellars”.
We also visited Ostrava Zoo. Believe it or not, the guinea-pigs were easily the most popular attraction there!
And here are some of the other things we got up to.
