This post is dedicated to FLT Jon Egging. Last weekend we were at the Bournemouth Air Festival. It’s a free air show on Bournemouth Beach, it’s an amazing day out. The festival was on for 4 days, we went on Saturday 20th August 2011. It was really busy on the seafront, there were lots of stalls ranging from Food to The Armed Forces stalls. The children got lots of free stuff as we walked around they were given flags, stickers, aeroplanes, Frisbees, bracelets and not forgetting sweets. When we arrived it was dry so we had a walk around all the stalls, we got there early in the morning, so luckily we got parked ok. After about an hour of walking around the clouds gathered and rain began to pour. Little Bird was in the buggy undercover so he was happy and the rest of us got a little bit wet. We fought through the crowds to try and find somewhere dry to eat and ended up in McDonalds. We had our lunch and it was still raining Daddy Bird started to talk about leaving and not watching the air show. I persuaded him to stay and said we could watch from under our umbrellas (which by now we had fetched from the car). So we made our way to the seafront again to watch The Red Arrows that started at 1pm.
Yesterday we were lucky enough to get passes to go to Drayton Manor near Tamworth Staffordshire . We arrived early so we could make the most of the day and enjoy all the activities that were on offer to us. The car park was really big, with lots of spaces so if you went on a really busy day they could accommodate a lot more cars than when we were there.
