Evening At The Beach

Hayling Island is lovely in the evening, it's my favourite time to visit the beach. We went last night for a couple of hours as it was still warm. Hannah went in the sea, took some pictures of her model horses on the beach, and the sunset was beautiful.

Animal Hospital - Fun With Friends

On Thursday we spent a lovely day at our friends house. Hannah loves going to Izzy and Anna's house as they all enjoy the same games. This time they set up a huge animal hospital game with all their beanie boos. They made a reception, beds, waiting room, treatment station and play area in the living room!

Hannah had the best time. Big thanks to Jo for having us over, and putting up with all the chaos the girls created :-)

The South Downs Show

Yesterday we went to the South Downs Show, which is a countryside/rural show at the foot of Buster Hill. It was a really good day full of our favourite things, horses, dogs, historical reenactment, birds of prey and lots of rural crafts and stalls.

We watched the Stallions Of Substance perform -

We found my sister and my mum also watching the horses!

I love this picture of my sister and Hannah together 
We saw lots of dog agility classes and a sheep dog demonstration.

There was a really interesting and knowledgeable historical reenactment group there who spent lots of time talking to us and demonstrating their crafts.

We watched some beautiful Percheron horses in a driving demonstration.

and finally, we had a go at some traditional games, this is Hannah having a try at hoop throwing.

A lovely, lovely family day out :-)

Night-time Pool Fun

 Hannah decided that 9pm was a good time to go swimming tonight!
 It was nice out in the garden with the bats flying over head and the frogs splashing in the pond............... and the child shrieking and dive bombing ( actually, the neighbours might not agree with that last bit but Hannah thought it was great!)

Riding Lesson

Hannah is definitely enjoying her riding lessons in the sun this summer.

It's her favourite place to be!

Fun Day At The Sustainability Centre

We've had lovely day today at The Sustainability centre in East Meon today with some friends. It's such a beautiful location, and so peaceful there. The summer wild flowers were gorgeous in the sunshine and the children had fun collecting flints and chalks and enjoying nature.
