Project Life August 2013 - Part 1

I really didn't think I had got so little to finish off for this month, I had taken it on holiday with me over half term and only spent about 1or 2 hours on it.

I've split it into two parts has we had a very active month.

Apologies for the poor quality of the photos, low light and glare from the page protectors.

So our August started with another check up for James, and a list of all the things we wanted to do over the Summer - I will update you with my September pages with how we got on with this list: then every thought it was the start of the holiday we had to prepare for the return back to school so it was shoe shopping.

A trip to the cinema; new Aston Villa Top, and James 1st visit to Nandos.

Our 2nd visit to the cinema, having James cousins visit Birmingham:

Going to see the 'once in a lifetime' flowering of a plant at the Botanical Gardens: 2nd visit to Nandos; baking; visiting the International Food Festival in Birmingham.

We had a few full days out and I wanted to document each day separately, so at the back of August main pages I've added extra pages protectors documenting each day.

Our 1st visit of the month to London, we had a fantastic time, James wanted to go back mainly so he could go on the tour bus that we missed out on when we visited London earlier this year, we ended up walking most of the day, 

but we did manage the bus.

We had such a great day, we where tried but happy.

Then we made our 1st visit to Bristol to do the Gromit Unleashed Trail.  We meet the lovely Beki, who I meet way back in 2010 at a retreat and have talked to her on line every since.  I contacted her and said we where coming to Bristol and if she wanted to meet up for a coffee, not only did she want to meet up she wanted to spend the day with us, what a superstar she was the perfect host and showed us around the city, James loved her and it was great to spend time with her on a social basis.

We returned to Bristol at the end of August with Claire and the kids, and again had a fantastic day.

These are a selection of the Gromits we found over the 2 days - before anyone says some of the photos are duplicated, which I only noticed after I'd printed them off.  But in total we found 50.

I  had the Gromit App and after finding a certain amount we were reward with these - showing us what a cracking good job we where doing !!!

I will upload the 2nd part in a few days.

Thanks for stopping by.
