Happy Friday to all who pop in here to share their smiles and to those that just pop in to have a smile and brighten their week. What a fab turn out we had last week....lots joined in to share their happy moments and I would like to thank you all for taking time out of your busy lives. It really does make the world a better place when you can smile through difficult times.
This week I am featuring another who joined in for the first time last week. Kay shared some pics of a dog with a better head for heights than me. :-) What a brilliant advantage point he has found to be on guard duty from. Thanks for joining in Kay....do join in to share again soon.
My smiles for this week are of the wonderful long weekend we had at Centre Parcs in the Lake District. All our wonderful family [ yes all 13 of us!] had planned a long weekend away together to celebrate Shell's 30th [Jan 7th] and my darling hubby's 60th birthday [March 3rd]. When we arrived it was cold, windy and the sky was throwing rain, sleet and snow at us but we found our way to two amazing lodges. Amy and Dave had a 4 bedroomed 2 storey lodge for all their family and the rest of us had a 4 bedroomed bungalow type lodge. They were really well equipped and very warm and cosy. We all had a wonderful family time together, the 5 grandchildren enjoyed swimming times together and there were many times to enjoy nature in the pine forest that surrounded us.
We made very many happy memories together....

There were red squirrels in the woods around us and we saw pheasants, a quail, a mouse, 2 badgers, more pigeons than we could count and a tree creeper to name but a few. There was a camera set up on a badger set that we could watch on the televisions and we even watched two badgers getting very friendly one night....rather voyeuristic!! The children were all very fascinated by the nature around us as you can see here...
I hope you have enjoyed sharing our smiles this week and will link up yours below......go on let's make the world a happier place. :-)
