Our sunday morning started off being a very lazy Pyjama day. We had planned to stay in today and watch as many films as we could. However, by lunch time, the children were getting extremely bored and beginning to fight. They were also bugging me to over throw my limit on computer games which I refused to budge on. I decided from then that enough was enough, we had to get out the house. We are very lucky to live in an area where there are so many places to go that doesn't involve spending money. The closest place to us that we love to explore is a beautiful national trust property, Antony house which we had a fantastic time visiting today.
To get to Antony house we took the scenic trail through our favourite forest. As you can see from the pictures, Tom brought his giant Rudolph as long for the walk. I was amazed he carried it the whole way without making me carry it.
At the end of the forest is a large field where we spent a good half an hour playing football. Alfie beat us all of course. He is becoming a good little kicker. We eventually had to stop though because there was a sudden influx of dog walkers on the field and we didn't want to lose the ball to a labrador.
Antony house looked even more stunning as usual today. We arrived near sunset so with the low light hitting the autumn leaves in the garden, it made for a beautiful view. The boys love coming here as they have seen and enjoyed the film 'Alice in Wonderland', which was filmed here. In the fences are these little flaps which you can see above. We joked that they were put there for the white rabbit.
I hope you liked our post.
