Summer has just about been and gone…and what a lovely summer it has been. We went to Texas to visit my family and see the obligatory dinosaur exhibit (my son walks, talks and sleeps with dinosaurs), went up to Yorkshire to see the legendary Pickering Steam Fair (yet another favourite of the boys) and then did some camping in the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales. The Dales are my new favourite place. Beautiful scenery, friendly people and well kept beer! On our way back down, we took the kids to West Kirby beach. I have never seen so much sand, and so little water! I kept a diary of our days in photos which has helped to remind me of all of our lovely time together.
