The summer holidays have officially started! The start of the summer for us has meant along with the ease of lockdown that we were able to finally have Stuart's Mum and her husband up to visit for a long weekend.

We last saw them briefly in February when we were over that way visiting my family. Then our plans to have them over for Easter were thwarted by lockdown.

They arrived on the Friday and will be heading home Tuesday but we are hopefully planning to head down a visit them at some point in August.

 Friday after they had arrived we spent time together at the camp site that my in laws are staying at and then had out first McDonald's since before lockdown.

Saturday we headed out Whisby Animal Centre which is inside Whisby Garden Centre and enjoyed lunch followed by ice cream and seeing the animals and of course fitting in a bit of time in the park area for Blake. In the evening we headed to the caravan park my in laws are staying at after we had picked up takeaway fish and chips to have together.

Today we had a lovely Sunday  lunch out together.We then headed to one of the local Parks so that Blake could burn off some energy. It was great to see the park back open as it had been shut since before Christmas when we had awful rain which flooded the play area.

We've stuck to social distancing and have made sure to wash our hands regularly. It's definitely strange but I'm glad for some normality and most of where we have been has been outside. The weather being nice has certainly been a blessing.
