The Great Outdoors wk 29-33: 25 hours

The summer holidays here are well underway which is a strange time of year for us. We're spoilt in term-time when we're out and about, in the school holidays everywhere is so much busier, we tend to hibernate a little. The weather has been cooler and cloudier for the last few weeks which hasn't tempted us much out of our hibernation! Added into the mix, I've been working and we've said goodbye to our lovely guide dog puppy who has gone off to carry on his training now. It was a sad day and we've needed to keep busy. 

There have been plenty of fun times out and about though. We've visited Warwick Castle with friends. We've been to the local park play days also with friends. And the kids have been practising their bike riding which has made me feel very proud. 

Last Monday we went into Birmingham to find some Owls on the Big Hoot trail. It was lots of fun, we all really enjoyed it! We found 27! A good start! The trail is on until the end of September, so plenty of time for us to find some more over the next few weeks.
