Having trawled through the local what's on guide, I'd spotted that there was a village fête going on in a nearby town so we headed over to have a look. It was very small but there were a few activities that the kids enjoyed (except for Sophie, who did the perfect bored teenager routine for the whole time we were there !). Apparently we'd just missed the falconry display but the birds were still out on display.
I have no idea what types of bird they were but they all looked very majestic. I love the huge owl with its big sleepy-looking eyes. It even yawned just as I took the photo !
Keeping on the medieval theme, the next stop was the bouncy castle.
Followed by the very un-medieval basketball hoops !
We skipped the displays going on on the stage and spent our time queuing up for Pierre to have a pony ride instead. That was all that was on offer but we couldn't complain because it was all totally free.
Swapping one trusty steed for another, we called into a sports shop on the way home and bought a new bike for Pierre's birthday, as his old one is now much too small.
It's much bigger than the old one but he took to it like a duck to water, shooting off around the car park without once falling off. Seven years old on Sunday - where does the time go ?!
