Another day, another birthday. This time it was my Dads.
Simply loved this 3D card from my lovely auntie Wendy.
Tommy got very excited handing my dad his presents and watching him open them.
My dad reading his book from Tommy.
As part of his pres, Mark and I took my dad and mum to Hyland's House and gardens. As you can see, it's a very grand house which is open to the public (and a very short car ride from our homes).
The grounds and gardens are magnificent.
At last, blue sky and pink blossom.
There was a pretty lake with ducks roaming about. Tommy wasn't too sure about the ducks. Plastic ones in the bath are his preference.
There was a 400 year old oak tree. Imagine all the stories it could tell us, from times long ago.
By the pond. Can you see Tommy was itching to run away and run around the gardens.
We all made a wish. But I can't tell you what I wished for, or it won't come true.
Amongst the flowers.
It really was a very special place.
Then we walked through the tunnel...
into the courtyard.
We browsed in the gift shop, where Tommy was treated to bubbles and new toy car.
After discovering a book shop and purchasing some bargains, we stopped off for cake and milkshakes.
Happy birthday to my amazing dad.
