Our Holiday, Part 2

Being like so many other young families who live on a small budget we are all about the free fun. Fortunately we were able to find enough things to keep our guys entertained.

The castle ruins were not my cup of tea, but the boys really enjoyed the climbing, jumping, running, hiding and exploring. And as an added bonus the periodic downpours provided plenty of puddles for splashing in.

We had a castle playground with bathroom facilities right there in the background...nice and close and convenient. It's always good to know where those are. :)

On the prom we had a paddling pool. Seth and Jason absolutely loved this, with Seth telling us many times how special it was. This picture was taken about 7 o'clock at night and it was really cold out, but they didn't seem to notice.

Morgan was the smart one and stayed warm and dry in his daddy's arms.

The Park and Ride was Paul's favorite activity which we did many times...

Because, you know, nothing is more fun then riding the bus.

We walked to the top of this not-so-high, but steep hill where we were greeted by a beautiful view...but that was not the reason for our efforts.

It was the bouncy castle so kindly provided by the nice little cafe at the top.

"Oh, what awesome parents I have!"
