While Cameron was in Leicester on Saturday, we took the other kids to Regents park for a long scooter ride. It was a foggy, gloomy day but the park was still as lovely as ever. It was Richard’s first time there, and he loved it. We walked and played at playgrounds and ate a picnic lunch.
On a Friday in March Cameron went with his school class to Leicester (pronounced “Lester”), north of London for an overnight trip to the National Space Centre. He had a great time, and got to do/see/learn some cool things. All the kids have been learning about space at school because Tim Peake, the first British astronaut, is currently on board the International Space Station. (As an interesting side note- he ran the London Marathon on a treadmill from the ISS. He ran the 26.2 miles in 3 hours and 35 minutes and traveled around the earth twice while doing so. I’m impressed.)
Regents Park is so big that even though I’ve been before, each time I go I see new places, new playgrounds, and new water fowl. The sun came out a few times and it ended up being a lovely Saturday outing.
