Fab weekend

Well that’s it, Dad is now 60.  And what a lovely weekend we had which included helping him celebrate.  Obviously any 3 day weekend such as we had is an awesome thing, but we really did well this one!

Saturday we went for a walk to the scrublands round from our house and enjoyed the sunshine.  There are many photos, especially of Owen inspecting a bug, if you wish to see them.  My favourite has to be this one though…

Sunday we were to drive down to my parents place, so we stopped off en route at Camperdown Wildlife Park in Dundee to see the beasties.  Again there are several photos of my own and of Bryan’s.  We even had a picnic lunch in the sun.

Owen decided it was time he learnt how to use one of these camera things so I didn’t get to take as many as I might have done normally!

Anyway then it was down to Creagan and have dinner with my folks.  Dad had cooked us roast chicken and Owen looked a little concerned when I said it was chicken and then pointed out the window to the chicken run…  He ate mostly mashed potato it must be said!

The next morning, after checking the chickens for eggs and finding one which Grandad wrapped carefully for him to take home for tea, we all headed to Blair Drummond Safari Park.  There we had a fab and lovely time looking at more beasties.  Can you believe neither of my parents can remember ever having seen a real live meerkat before?!  The poor deprived folks!  Of course Owen’s favourite bit was splashing in the puddles, typical boy!  Again several photos, and a video of him splashing are available.

And I’m happy to report that my folks liked their pressies – last night they were at Pitlochry Theatre to see My Fair Lady, Mum was allowed her pressie a few days early to fit in with performances!  Hopefully they enjoyed it as much as I did when I had to go for work recently.   And who wouldn’t like a canvas of Owen and his Grandad?!
