My Perfect Weekend

My weekend was just perfect.

Saturday afternoon our son came over for tea.






Then stayed over.










Mother's Day.







A trip to Slimbridge Wetlands Centre, I took over 300 photo's here are just a few.


















Some of the Swan's were very big, I was a bit nervous, but I had a go at feeding one.













A really lovely day out, we all really enjoyed it so much we might become members.

  1. Great pics from Slimbridge. It must be nearly 40 years since I last went and the building looks the same {at least, I think it does} Oh! how digital photography has changed the way we take pictures. I came home with two 36 exp 35mm rolls!
    I guess you like toffee and fudge then? So do I!

  4. What a lovely weekend you've had. So glad you got to see your son for the weekend, Daniel didn't make it home from uni as he's got his Year 3 project to hand in this week so he's up to his eyes in work but he rang me and the rest of us had a lovely day. I see what you mean now about having lots of treats too, we're both definitely going to have to do lots of walking to burn off the calories. Slimbridge looks fabulous, I love that photo of the duck splashing in the water. I always come home from our local RSPB reserve with loads of photos, it's a good job we've gone digital and we no longer have to worry about the cost of developing them all.

    1. I suppose there will be lots of times from now on when you and I won't see our sons and you your daughter as well on special occasions, they have commitments, it is hard but they are adults now, and they have to do their own thing.
      I have been for a walk today so a few calories burnt off xx
