A couple weeks back, Daddy’s job threw this year’s version of the annual ‘summer’ picnic/party. Like last year (which you may have read about here), it was held at Wrotham Park, a sprawling estate that’s home to many acres of hills, trees and ponds, plus a big ol’ manor house. And like last year, the ‘summer’ picnic took place in early September. That worked out well last year, as the day was warm and sunny. This year, not so much – it was cool, cloudy and threatening rain all weekend, and a cold wind was whipping up the hills. In fact, Daddy came down with a nasty two-week cold the very next day; Nyan, we’re very happy to report, did not get sick. Whew.
Still. it was a very pleasant family outing. Here’s the star of the show, jamming to a little tune about summertime:
There was plenty of food:
And plenty of activities for the kiddies, including a giant rubber duckie, and a life-sized ceramic peacock:
And here are a few photos of Mommy and Nyan, along with the manor house itself:
Finally, we leave you with another video of the young man, dancing a bit inside the giant tent with all the strawberries:
