Madhouse diaries : When the adventures come to us !

After a couple of big days out this week and a broken night's sleep due to the storms, I'd decided to have a quiet Saturday. But it wasn't to be ! We heard music and went to investigate and this lot was on the school car park just around the corner ! Needless to say, we had to go and check it out. This vintage-looking roundabout was the first stop - it looks just like the ones I used to go on as a kid !

The biggest laugh was the jousting on an inflatable arena. I couldn't resist taking a couple of little videos on my camera.


I love the way Juliette puts her heart and soul into it but Sophie looks like she doesn't need to make the slightest effort.


As for Pierre, I think he's found his vocation - either stuntman or circus clown !

Time for some safer and quieter pursuits !

Sophie won a water pistol - that will doubtless get a lot of use over the holidays !

The giant Connect 4 was very popular.

Everybody stand well back, Juliette's having a go at the darts !

Oh blimey, time for another round of jousting !

And some bouncing on the bouncy castle.

"Mum, I'm tired !"

'Ouch, ouch, ouch - it's hot !"

I should point out that this isn't a rude gesture in France - he was saying "yeah man, it's cool" !!

Pierre had another ride on a donkey - that's two this week ! Apparently, the donkey wasn't very happy because he could sense the stormy weather.


Hold on tight, Pierre !

Juliette took on another friend who is twice her size !

Then it was time for a quick ice lolly to cool down and we headed for home. 

Even when we don't go out looking for adventures, they come and find us !
