On the Saturday we decided to all go off to the Rare Breeds Farm over near Ashford. Last time we went the girls loved it, so we thought it would be a great place to take the family. Just right for all ages. And as you can see from all the photos we took, it went down really well with everyone. (warn you now there are loads in this post).
And wow this butterfly is just amazing. They kept flying all around us and in and out of our feet. If you don't like flying things it's not the best place for you lol the girls loved it, but Ben and I couldn't believe our eyes when on turning a corner we both saw Daisy stomping her foot down on to a poor defenceless butterfly and making a grrrr noise at it lol Ben just froze in horror and I shouted out NO! Daisy stop that's very, very naughty. She of course ran off, awww 2 year old's don't you just love them hehe! I did of course give her a little chat about rules of butterfly tunnels and the main one being not to stomp on any. I think she gets it now.
The rest of the family joined us and we told them what had happened. Ben had picked it up and moved it to a safer place, it was still moving around so I think it had a lucky escape. In the next tunnel everyone had their eyes on her and we got through without any more casualty's. Oh god apart from the tropical one that flu in to the wild British tunnel when I was holding the flap open for Sam and baby Ava to come through with the buggy. Flaming things, don't they know they have to stay in the right parts. Ben did get lots of beautiful photos of the ones that didn't get lost or squashed. hehe!
After stopping for some lunch and playtime for the girls on some slides. We popped over to meet Blueberry the Alpaca and her baby Simon (what a funny name, sorry no photos of him). We were all to busy with having fun watching Paul stroke (tease) Blueberry lol every time he patted her on the bum she turned her head like she was going to spit at him lol And of course we were all waiting for it to happen. She didn't I think she liked it really.
Here is Uncle Ben getting in practice again pushing a buggy, think again Mr Short, you'll have to propose first and put a ring on my finger before I give you anymore bubbas. lol
Molly, Daisy and Jade found a great wooden castle with slide and played on that while the grow-ups continued to have races on the aerial runaway.
After a long very hot day, we all got ice-creams, said our goodbyes to the animals and set off for home.
Back home the girls rested on the sofa and we all had a yummy salad tea. Then it was time for goodbyes and see you soon's. And a long drive back to Cheltenham for Sam, Paul and Ava, after a lovely time together, I'm always sad to see them go, as I'm sad to leave them when we visit Cheltenham.
