On Saturday 17th May, we joined with Jennie and friends to walk a mile in memory of Matilda Mae and raise money for the Lullaby Trust. The little ones chose to spend the day with Granny, so Paul and I travelled up to Warrington with the two big boys. The venue, Walton Gardens, was lovely, and the weather was perfect.
We gathered in the courtyard and blew bubbles for Tilda while we waited for everyone to be ready to set off.
Pink and purple balloons marked the route.
Thomas made an appearance and we were sorry that the little ones had missed him, but even the big boys were quite pleased to see him.
Beautiful pink and purple flowers reminded us why we were there.
After the walk, there was time to play in the playground, have lunch and explore the park.
We walked around the mini zoo, and spent quite a while trying to get a good peacock photo but they weren’t really in the mood for performing!
The boys had a go at bungee trampolining.
Then they went on the bouncy slide. By this time it was very hot and they needed an ice cream to cool down before finishing with a ride on Thomas.
Thank you Jennie for letting us be a part of your day to remember Matilda Mae.
