An actual sunny bank holiday weekend in the UK

There are no words to explain how amazing a sunny bank holiday weekend in the UK is, so I’m going to use pictures instead. Here’s our fab weekend en famille in the sun:



Saturday saw L and I heading to our local park for some long overdue one-on-one time. She hung upside down. I took photos. I don’t do swinging on climbing frames these days.



On Sunday Hubs, L, C and I were joined by Hubs’ twin brother and girlfriend for everyone’s first visit to Kew Gardens. They lived up to everyone’s expectations and we had a wonderful, if tiring, day out soaking up nature in the sun.



We even managed to get a rare shot of the Franglaise family, even if you can’t really see Baby C fast asleep in her carrier!



We ended our lovely long weekend with a family picnic on the Common at the end of our road (I LOVE the fact that London is littered with these amazing green spaces!). L was delighted to have all the time in the world to climb “her” tree, C drank it all in from the picnic blanket, Hubs and I chilled in the open air and even managed a bit of reading (a favourite pastime of ours).

All in all it was a simple, but perfect weekend. Amazing what a bit of sun can do.

I am linking up with the Sticky Fingers blog and The Gallery for today’s blog post, where the theme is The Weekend. If you want to see other posts about the weekend, hop on over.

    You definitely picked the perfect weekend to fly over. It was lovely wasn’t it? I love the pics of your girls!

      No flying over these days as we’re now living in London. Although I do remember mostly missing any good weather when I did use to fly over from Nice! I’m really happy with these pics too 🙂

    What a delightful day at the park. All the best of a sunny bank holiday weekend. It looks very chilled there with lots of quality family time. I’d love you to join me on my Country Kids linky too.

    Happy days in the sunshine. You have two beautiful children. The smile on your baby’s face in the second photo is so sweet.

    • Franglaise Mummy says:

      Thanks! That photo is my favourite too as normally the smile disappears when the camera comes out.

    You really did get the best of the weather. It really doesn’t visit us often enough these days.
