Day two, up and at ’em early we were! Our day began with a proper English breakfast of eggs, toast, sausage, bacon, AND beans. All of that pub-sitting the day before meant we had earned a hearty meal. Right? Right. Sure, whatever.
First stop? The playground! (Don’t mind me being bow-legged, it goes back to horseback riding days…oh wait, right, I’m afraid of horses. So yeah, I have no explanation, just don’t mind it, I’m squatting awkwardly and James is watching me do so.)
Right after this next picture was taken, James fell off the playset. Oops. Becky and I had fun climbing the spider web thingy though (and he was fine)!
Following the tumble, James preferred lower ground and insisted upon driving his dad around in the truck. It reminds me of the Flintstones for some reason!
Onward and upward with the day – next stop, the steam train!
This next series shows idiotic parenting. We start with a cute little picture of the train, James, and me. Aww, what a great adventure we’re having!
Oh shit, it’s a steam train, and it’s leaving. Fuck, it’s steamy. We’re getting covered in steam train shit. Goddammit.
Holy protective momma bear. My baby is getting covered in steam train shit and good lord that whistle is LOUD.
Let’s get out of here and take quaint little pictures of English countryside villages. Yes, heart garlands fit the bill.
This should not surprise anyone that knows us.
We did not buy these. Though if I ever need a place to purchase my reet good proper porkie scratchings, I now know where to go.
Moving right along, a proper English tea at Betty’s!
Contrary to my uh-oh-we’re-in-a-fancy-place-with-an-18-month-old expectations, James was a little delight during our afternoon tea (once we fed him the chocolate cake).
Ooooh, look at me, pouring proper English tea!And eating proper English tea cakes!Tea is exhausting.
And there you have it, our England adventure! Tomorrow, onward to Spain!
