King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone

The family went to an outdoor performance of a play - 'King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone' by the Cambridge Touring Theatre - Fun for all the family. It was great to be outside in the fresh air in a small amphitheatre at Waddesdon Manor.  The performance and music were great.  Harry and Jasper sat at the front.  Charlie sat with me near the front at the side.  The rain stayed away.

They were all a bit taken by Merlin

it was getting a bit late at the end so was a bit chilly

All the characters were great - the Magnificent Madam Mim standing out for me - while she was drinking cherry ade and being dizzy rather than doing Zumba :-)

They also handled the rather self confident child with parents that didn't seem to care he was annoying everyone including the cast albeit we could also all laugh at them too. 

Highly recommend the whole experience for the family.  HDC

Day Trip to London July 2012

We try to get to London at least once every couple of months.  Today we met up with some old work colleagues and took in Hyde Park.  Lots of walking, watching squirrels, running and laughing.  Jasper fell of his scooter the usual number of times and got hurt the usual number of times.

First stop Diana Memorial Playground

then some lunch and the Diana Memorial Fountain.  Not a warm day but we filmed the boys playing in the fountain - maybe on for YouTube.
