Travelling with Small Children has been an adventure, all the more so because they're so darn cute and say the most hilarious things ("I had to stop going down the slide after two goes because a bug came near me"). But even more adventuresome than travelling with two Small Children? Travelling with an unexpectedly pregnant lady! Very interesting indeed.

We drove around the English countryside a lot, discovering the Cotswolds and some standing stones,

and an English castle garden.

Then we found ourselves in Nottingham, eating lunch at the oldest inn in England,

meeting up with Kyliemac and co for some Robin Hood adventures.

Then we went down to London, where we flitted around the city, saw a couple of shows, and did the usual touristy things.

And then we drove up to Scotland through the incredible Lake District. Throughout the whole drive, we talked about when we were going to come back...

We've been sucked into the whirlwind of summer holiday adventures for the last couple of weeks. As my moblogging has shown, we've been running around all sorts of different places and having tremendous fun doing so with Old Friends and their Small Children. I would spend the next three days writing if I tried to go into all the details (and anyway, we're saving up some of the really juicy bits for the podcast), but here is a bit of a glimpse of what we got up to in our first few days away :

After playing in Paris for a couple of days,

we jumped on a ferry in Calais and made our way over to Dover,

then wandered around Leeds Castle for a day,

and finally headed up to Northamptonshire and stayed on a farm for a few days.



There are more photos on flickr, and there will be more to come...
