On Good Friday we made some hot cross buns! Here they are before going in the oven and also a photo of Isla eating one later on:
Today we went across the Severn Crossing to Wales. We told Isla that we were going to Wales across a big bridge. When we were crossing the bridge, she said that she couldn't see any whales in the sea so we had to explain about Wales being a country and that we weren't going to see any big sea mammals today!
We drove past Chepstow racecourse to Coleford in the Forest of Dean to visit Perrygrove Railway. There was a steam train to ride on, chickens, treehouses, slides and walks in the forest. Isla really enjoyed it, especially the trains, which she wanted to go on again and again.
After visiting the railway, we headed to Tintern where we had a nice meal in a pub called the Moon and Sixpence. The pub was full of antiques and had views over the Wye river. Isla liked playing with the beermats and watching all the people in the pub.
After lunch, we visited Tintern Abbey. It was very impressive. Isla enjoyed running around the abbey and grounds.
