We love jet boats

Every year we see the jet boats in the bay at Llandudno - why haven't we been on then before?

A morning at Bodnant gardens

Where we walked and admired the trees and Mr Ben poked things with a stick!

A walk to the Afon Dulyn

We went for a trek to one of my favourite spots in the whole world - the bridge at the Afon Dulyn

We parked at Tal-y-Bont and walked up the hill to Llanbedr - stopping for photo ops at the The Bull Inn and  Pen-y-Graig (my grandparents house for 30 years)

Then it was a walk through the woods to the river....
.... to get to the bridge....

.... and the amazing rocks!

I spent many happy times here with my brother, climbing, playing, reading 
(yes, the BEST spot to sit and read)

Miss M and Mr B were very happy to go and clamber onto the rocks - I decided to stay on the bridge and watch!

Then it was a stroll back down to the car.

After a grey day.....

... with lots of Welsh drizzle.... the evening the weather cleared and we climbed the Vadre.

Quad biking @ Penllyn

All the way up the hill to Penllyn Mr B asked 
"Can I go on the quad bike with Uncle P?"

All the way up the hill we said 
"You must be patient - have lunch and then ask. Don't mither or fuss about it."

All the way up the hill Mr B replied "I won't fuss. I won't mither"

We pulled into the farmyard and parked.

Mr B got out of the car - ran up to Uncle P and asked "Can I go on the quad bike?"...

 Meanwhile - Auntie J DIDN'T quad bike!

Mr Ben @ Batman Live!

The end of the birthday treats.... 
we took Mr B to see Batman Live

I booked this months ago - it's a brand new show - the World Premier was on Wednesday!

And it was fabulous! Forget the overly dark (and rather pretentiously boring) new films - this was proper hero stuff!

It was also far more theatrical than I expected - full of clever tricks, effects and staging - Mr B loved it - I loved it - and My Mister thought it was "AWESOME!"

Oh - and add in a Batmobile designed by an F1 engineer - perfect!

Evening at Liverpool Pier Head

We went to Liverpool for the evening - hoping to see this - but Mr B was in no mood to wait around. So we walked aournd admiring the new buildings, then headed home. But not before Miss M took a chance to pose!

Miss M and friends...

... celebrate the start of the summer holidays!
