Spring at Osterley Park

The Easter holidays have come to an end and I'm looking through the photos of the glorious three weeks off. We were blessed with the weather at points and I definitely made the most of it planing 
days out to enjoy the sunshine.

One of Sophie's godmothers had planned a day out to see the dinosaur trail at Osterley Park, a nearby National Trust property. We chose the date after it finished (whoops!) so we went for a stroll around the grounds instead. Sophie loved the swans and ducks in the lake and the views of the house across the park were beautiful.

I'm a National Trust member, but Victoria isn't so as we had planned to get home for Sophie's nap time we forged entering the formal gardens and house and had a lovely walk around the public areas. Luckily I packed the camera and had a jolly time snapping away at the wisteria that was covering one side of the mansion.

We obviously needed to sample the cafe, so a stop for lattes and cake in the sunny courtyard broke up our stroll, whist Sophie explored all the cobbles and mounting block.

Sophie was still recovering from a nasty cold shed had the previous week and after coffee was demanding to be carried (which she is far too heavy for extended walks!) so we decided to move our lunch stop to our home town where we found a new cafe to try - more to come on this!
