We visited Attingham Park, another National Trust country home property, with the kids yesterday. The brilliant sunshine is disguising what was a chilly, changeable, breezy day. About half an hour before the above photo was taken, we dashed for the car to finish our picnic amidst a pelting shower of icy hail.
Raincoats in the sunshine!
We walked a couple of miles around Attingham's deer park. We spotted a herd of deer on the far side of the park but the boys were too distracted by chasing the pheasants to seek out the deer further.
Mr J found "Old Man Willow".
Somehow, the older two boys don't feel the cold like the rest of us do! They've always been the same. They prefer shorts and flip-flops from April to October, no matter what the weather.
