Windy weekend!

I can't believe how windy it was yesterday! Alex and I went to the park in the afternoon and nearly got blown away. Despite that we had a lovely time getting at least some fresh air and the rest of the day was spent inside drawing, playing with stickers, cars, trains and helping me cook. Today we decided to have a family trip out to celebrate my birthday so we went to Chester Zoo. Sadly the weather wasn't great with intermittant showers and poor Tim wasn't feeling very well so we didn't stay long, although it was long enough to play in this phone box, see the elephants (Alex hasn't stopped talking about them), various monkeys including this curious chap, the bats (which we didn't do lsat time), the cheetah, the lions and have a ride on the monorail (Alex calls it the 'tramp'). As the Blue Planet aquarium is very close we went there and had a great time seeing the different fish...Alex is fascinated by the fish so he thought it was wonderful, especially seeing so many sharks in the big tank. All in all we had a great trip out.
Needless to say I haven't done a lot of crafting this weekend, not helped by losing my mojo yesterday, but I did make this card which fits two challenges for this week. The PTW challenge of using black and white and one other colour and the CupCake Craft challenge of bugs. Have a great week everyone.
