This Little Big Life: Fun Days, Fairgrounds and First Experiences

This Little Big Life is a weekly link-up started by Sarah and Louise - all about capturing the little moments which make up a big life from the previous weekend.

There's a bit of a story about last weekend though...
Every year we go for a day trip in May to Pinkney's Green near Maidenhead to see Carter's Steam Fair. The fairground does actually come nearer to us (in Bath, 6th to 14th Aug if you fancy a trip) but at Pinkney's Green they make it extra special by adding in several traction engines. This year, with Lily in tow, we thought we'd stay overnight and booked a nearby Travelodge, in Reading. That weekend though was when I ended up in hospital with mastitis which had turned into a breast abscess. Luckily we could rebook the room so we chose the next time the fairground was closest to our Travelodge - which was last weekend, when they were at West Wycombe. Saturday was also the day of our carnival club's annual family fun day (which Andrew was taking his vintage lorry to) and I was taking part in July's photo an hour challenge on Instagram. So even though it looks a bit like we drove 3 hours just to spend an evening and the next morning at a fairground we're going to see in a week or so anyway, there is a bit of method to the madness!

So...Saturday was all about travelling, catching ducks, sitting in dad's vintage lorry, watching fireworks, playing with the camera and first fairground rides.

Sunday was all about old school slush drinks, munching books, more fairground rides, tidying up toys, using the space on a Travelodge Dreamer bed and all-you-can-eat breakfast buffets.

Pop over to Sarah's blog and Louise's blog to see what they got up to...

  4. Oh wow, the steam fair looks amazing. And she's getting so grown up now!

  5. Happy Half-Birthday, Lily! Looks like you all had a great time at the fair and I'm glad you're on the mend, Lou! xx

  6. What a weekend! It's great that you could rebook the room and come again, totally worth it! you wouldn't want to miss out on a little trip :)
