A Grand Day Out

Last weekend I had an absolute blast.  It started on Friday when I travelled along the M4 to stay with friends.


On Saturday morning we were back on the M4 and heading to Bristol, we were going hunting!
We were hunting for this fellow:
And we found plenty, here are a few of my favourites:
This is Bunting
For obvious reasons.
Who doesn't love a pirate?
We found Wally!
Oops A Daisy because daisies are my favourite flower :)
Patch was simply gorgeous.
This strawberry collar was amazing.
I couldn't resist Five A Day:
Because he was covered in cherries!
Stat's The Way To Do It, Lad! was located at Aardman Animations and he had some very cool facts on him including this one:
Who'd have thought it!

We had a pit stop for doughnuts:
Saw the famous Bristol graffiti:
Had a cheeky kiss:
Hung out with Wallace:
And spent a lot of time with this great kid:
All in all we walked a lot:
And I was so pleased that I managed to find this many Gromits:
So, if you're stuck with things to do while the kids are on holiday (or even if, like me, you're a big kid yourself) then I can really recommend making the effort to head to Bristol and hang out with Gromit for the day.

I really must thank Tracy, Michelle, Callum and Lauren for making me feel so welcome.  Thanks to Lauren for giving up her bed for me, thanks to Michelle for inviting me, thanks to Callum for being so entertaining and thank you to Tracy for all the driving she did.

I hope you have some great days out planned this summer :)

That looks like so much fun. I love it when cities do this sort of thing---although I've never seen those before. Each one a work of art.

I thought of you today when I was working on a scrapbook page involving cherries! We've got rhinos to search for around here so its seems a popular thing to do this summer. They all look great!
