This morning we got up and made a picnic and went for a drive to Charlecote Park which is National Trust. Firstly we walked around the house where Roman hunted Easter bunnies and Anais answered questions from a question sheet given to her.
We then walked round the old kitchen which had a real fire going and volunteers cooking period food, Anais helped one of the cooks though Roman was too shy. We walked round the brew house, laundry, Carriage Collection and brought a book each from the used book shop.
We walked along The River Dene and found a quiet spot with a lone picnic table where we stopped to eat our picnic. Wellesbourne airfield is not far away so there were lots of low flying aircraft over head including one that we think was an old Spitfire?
We walked back to the car and took a drive to Stratford Upon Avon where we walked up and down the high street. We were going to go for a walk around the river and canals but it was packed, we have never known Stratford so busy.
On the way home we stopped off at the big shopping centre so Roman could look in W H Smith and spend his £5 book voucher. He didn't see anything he wanted to buy (very sensible with his money!) but we did buy some little stocking fillers for birthdays/ Christmas.
This afternoon we came back to the caravan, Anais started her maths homework and Mark and Roman built a wooden model of a plane. I have been reading my book "The Atlantis Code" - 56% of the way through so far.
This evening mom and dad came to the caravan and we all went to The Jubilee for tea. I took the opportunity of taking a laptop so I could connect to the free WIFI and have uploaded slideshow of photo's for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. All other photo's that haven't uploaded properly I will upload when we get home.
After tea Anais and Roman played on the park and then we all came back to the caravan for a homemade birthday cake which we all had a go at putting together after breakfast this morning. We took turns in whipping the cream - very hard as we have no electric whisk with us. Jenny - we used some of your blackcurrant jam for the centre and it was delicious!
