Better late than never! My knight in shining armour

Today has been the most wonderful but hectic day, celebrating big boy's 3rd Birthday! We are having a big party on Sunday in the local village hall and I still have loads of things on my to do list. All of them times 29! What were we thinking inviting so many?! Ha! Seriously, nothing gives me greater pleasure than this.

I had two knights in shining armour today. One was a three year old pretending to be Mike the Knight, whom I'd promised a castle picnic to and one was the gentleman working at Banwell Castle this lunchtime.

Off we went armed with a picnic and castle inspired fancy dress hats (photos to follow!) Only to realise when we pulled up to the beautiful historical castle, that it was a private residence that opens for tea and coffee and light snacks as well as a wedding venue.

The poor chap took pity on us and allowed us, and only us, as he stressed, to take our picnic onto their magnificent back garden, with the Castle as our back drop.

We of course ordered drinks and ice creams but felt so honoured and privileged that he had let us indulge a three year old's fantasy!

So here is one photo from today! Not the most creative but my favourite.
