Julian and Shelley came to stay this weekend, so along with Stacey, we had one crowded fun house! The weather has (unsurprisingly) been a little overcast for both days, so yesterday the girls made cupcakes, and we all watched movies (both Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix).
Deciding that we needed some outdoor time, we chanced the weather today and went to explore Gunnersbury Park, which is about a 10 minute walk from our place. Turns out, the park is absolutely beautiful! One great thing about the weather always being overcast, frequent rain, and a not-so-intense sun (when it does decide to appear), is that parks here are really green.
We took advantage of the outdoor time to play some frisbee (which you may remember we’re experts at). We even managed to pick up a very excitable extra player at one point!
After our arms were tired out from frisbee, we took a walk around other parts of the park. Turns out there’s some old house there (I didn’t really understand why, nor did I care); as well as a golf course, a lake, and even some mock gothic ruins! Not to mention all the beautiful trees – we even found one that was twisted and deformed, to the point where it looked like Gonzo sticking out his tongue!
(Ok, you need to use your imagination a little bit, but hopefully you can see it.) My only complaint about the park – I wish it was closer to our house!
