There’s nothing nicer than catching up with friends you’ve not seen for in ages and today was one of those days :)Earlier in the week my pal Jill texted me to say there was a garden and scarecrow festival in Trawden over the weekend, and the theme was Disney,our favourite,we’d be there no matter what!making memories with the kids playing together are my favourite kind of days, couldn’t wait to catch up and enjoy spending the day together.
I don’t know Trawden at all so it was great that Jill knows the area like the back of her hand. We parked up and headed through the main street, passing lots of quaint little gardens which James and Lily found fascinating, with all the different flowers, garden ornaments, scarecrows and lots of nooks and crannies to explore. The local resident’s welcomed you into the village and into their gardens. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day to be walking round enjoying all the effort everybody had put into this local event.
As we walked round the village we saw everything from Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Up, Monsters Inc, Snow White and the seven dwarfs, it was absolutely brilliant! and the kids loved it! Jill and I were just saying “Awwww” constantly as James, Lily, and Polly faces were in ore of it all, it made the day that bit more magical for them and us!
After we’d had afternoon tea in the village hall there were lots of little stalls selling homemade cakes and crafty things the kids had fun on the bouncy castle and we couldn’t help buy these amazing fruit flavoured lollies to set us all up for the walk round the rest of the village, as you can see from the kids faces they loved them!
What a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon walking round the picturesque village of Trawden exploring peoples gardens and watching the kids have fun looking at all the scarecrows. Thanks for a lovely afternoon Jill, Lily and Polly. Hope you’ve had a fab Sunday 🙂
