Summer is really trying to establish itself here in England. We woke to a drizzly sky, but by 11am it had cleared to blue skies so the kids and I decided to go for a bike ride through the woods and picnic on the common. We had a fantastic time, even when we got completely waterlogged on the very soggy common. Luckily I had packed a waterproof picnic rug! I even packed my camera, and tried very hard to capture my son's wonderful new freckles that are appearing on his nose and cheeks! I am so in love with them, it reminds me of my summer holidays growing up, I always ended up with that healthy outdoorsy kid spattering of freckles. Probably a sign that I should put sunblock on his nose, but they look cute. At least he sat still long enough for me to get a couple of sharp shots - I won't tell you how many blurry duds there were! We even found a rather cool looking caterpillar, a rather fitting end to a lovely day.
Needless to say, 10 minutes after hosing our bikes down and hanging a load of washing out, the skies clouded over and it poured all afternoon!

Thought I'd drop in and tell you that I've enjoyed visiting your site. Love the photos, I came via your photo site, they're lovely. Can't linger as I'm expecting a friend and I've already spent a long time here and on a site you recommended the Liz and Madeline site. So thank you for directing me to it.
I will call in again soon!
Until then, Lynne
