Thanks for stopping by today. 
We had a fab day yesterday, and even managed to fit in a Dinosour safari!

Yes that is a Velosiraptor in the background! It is a life size statue in the front garden of a house quite near us!

 I have a day of gardening today after church...hope to get all my seedlings out if possible! Have a great Sunday! :)
