Ruislip Lido July 2010

We went to Ruislip Lido on 11 July.  It surprised me because its only about 40 minutes away at a nice steady drive.  We love it there because its got everything; free parking, a beautiful picnic area, steam train, lovely lake, sanded beach, ducks, play park…ice cream stall…just a great day out…

Aldenham park

On 4 July 2010, we decided to revisit Aldenham Park near Elstree, London. It was nice to revisit and let the kids see the farm animals. Emily and Hannah loved it. We started with a picnic, fed the ducks, went to see the animals then a play in the park…..100_3654 100_3664 100_3668 100_3672 100_3674 100_3688 100_3691 100_3692 100_3698

Ireland June 2010

We went back to Ireland in June for a week to see Sharon's family and look for a house for when we retire. We were lucky enough to have a great bit of weather while we were over there and, as always, we were so well looked after by the Armstrong's and the Griffith’s.

We went down to Muckross, a lovely little patch by loch Erne in Fermanagh for launching boats, having picnics and whatnot….its a lovely area

We had a wonderful day out with Denise and Matty at the American Folk Museum. I really recommend a visit if you’re around the Omagh area…
