Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together.

Today we went up to visit Kevs Mum and his Auntie Dian. Every year we have a little mini Christmas for his Auntie, she prefers to stay at home for Christmas. As she doesn’t have much family and instead of her missing out, we bring Christmas to her for the day! With a Christmas dinner, present exchanging and chatting, it is lovely to see her, and the children love being able to give her the presents from us too.
Auntie Dian hasn’t done sparklers since she was a little girl. She didn’t make it to visit us around firework night, like arranged so we saved her sparklers to today!

We arranged to visit Longleat with our friends on Sunday, to visit Father Christmas and to see the festival of light. We went around the safari first, to see the animals up close……
Cheeky monkeys on the car was one of the best parts for the kids! They thought it was so funny seeing them jumping around!! We had a wiper blade ripped off (needed replacing!) and some seal pulled up, but that survived!
Had a explore around the park, and lost a mobile phone (Tylers!) grrr!!
Who else hates mazes? I hate them!! Why do the kids always have to do something you hate?!
Then it was time to visit Santa on the train.
It went into the woods, where we found Santa in his lodge and the elves busy helping him!
Then it was dark once we came out, so then we could visit the festival of lights. WOW!
If you don’t already follow me on Instagram I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I have a picture for every single day, this year it will be 366 pictures!
