Candles making

This week has been a fun week!
David & I have been busy bike riding and hiking (across over grown woods!), 
and having a lot of fun doing it.
This weekend though we enjoyed a lovely day at Clumber park.

We had planned on going bug hunting,
but ended up visiting the discovery centre and checking out their Bee display.

The children were able to observe the Bees being very busy!
Sammy informs me that the white bits in the comb are baby bees developing!
(my children knowing more than me begins!)

Micah rather enjoyed examining the Bees.
We had the pleasure of trying 6 different types of honey too...

we took a vote on which we liked the best and bought a jar,
we are saving it toward Christmas.
This is something we try and do every year.
We like to buy little special food items throughout the year at places we visit and have fun
 and save them to enjoy at Christmas.
That way we can remember the fun we had while enjoying the treats!

The children even had the opportunity to make their own candles!
Everyone loved doing this, even Oliver (2 years old) loved it and did a wonderful job.

I may be biased, but I think these are the best candles I have ever seen!!!

We then went and enjoyed a play in the park,
A BBQ, and some games in a random field near by.

England being England,
 we did experience a period of quick retreat under the boot of our minibus as the heavens opened.
(Thank goodness for needing such a big car!)
But when the clouds dispersed we were rewarded for our endurance with wonderful sunshine!!

Which Oliver took advantage of to steal Micah's bike...
Sadly for him he couldn't reach the pedals....
Lucky for him he has a very loving big sister!

We had a wonderful day and just as we had finished packing up
and driving out of the field the heavens opened and released a downpour
that would have made the most defiant of Brits go running for shelter.
It did create some beautiful rainbows,
which allowed for a spot the rainbow competition...
there were 6 rainbows spotted!

All in all a lovely day!
