I got up early this morning and headed back to The hermitage where I enjoyed a pleasant morning stroll.
After breakfast we packed the kids up and went to a farm which had created a children's play park with attractions including go-karts, a wooden castle and trampolines. I think the pedal go-karts were the winner, with the kids getting the most fun from them, and spending loads of time (and energy).
Unfortunately the weather was quite unsettled, and we got a little wet a couple of times, but I don't think that bothered the kids.
In the afternoon I took a legion of the children (not the entire army) to a park where we tried out Boris' remote controlled hovercraft. It was quite good fun, but unfortunately it didn't like the rough terrain too much, and the battery didn't last too long. It kept the kids occupied for the afternoon nevertheless.
