Apparently what we are doing this year is having a 'staycation' and supposedly it is quite a trendy thing to do! Basically it means we are having a holiday from home with lots of day trips out. We started on Saturday with a trip to the outdoor play area (Sci-tek and Aqua-tek) at Magna. The weather was nice enough for Alex to run around in the water park
Where he had great fun, and even persuaded me to join in
Yes, I did get soaked and I enjoyed every minute of it!
We then went into the adventure playground for a picnic and to warm up in the sun.
On Sunday we went out to the Heights of Abraham where we all enjoyed the cable car ride (don't ask me why Alex insisted on putting his hood up)
and the caves, although Alex wasn't too sure about them switching the lights off!
That said we all enjoyed the light display in the main cave.
Alex then went on to a party for one of his friends where he was given these glasses which made us all laugh.
Today we went to Drayton Manor Park where Alex showed us how much he loves rollercoasters, although he hated the queueing! Poor Tim was exhausted and spent much of the time sat in a heap...we will have to do something more gentle tomorrow.
Crafting wise I have made my entry for this weeks Quirky Crafts challenge which is 'Under the sea'. We were given some very cute images from our sponsor to work with. Pop on over and check out the rest of the DT entries and join in for a chance to win some digital stamps. I am also entering this into Meljen's theme of 'coastal fun' and Penny's challenge 'Here comes summer'.
I have also made a card for this weeks Less is More challenge, which was monochrome. I chose shades of brown for my monochrome and used coredination card stock, embossed it using my cuttlebug and sandpapered the embossing to reveal the lighter core in the middle. The stamp I used was free with the recent issue of Crafty Stamper. This card followed this weeks Unscripted sketch, and I am also entering this card into Delicious Doodles 'texture'. Have a great rest of the week everyone.
