Happy Days and Some Winners...

Sorry its taken me so very long to post thw winners of my giveaway...but I've been incredibly busy filling up the days before Evie goes back to school with lots of fun activities which have just seemed to have taken up lots of my time this past week.
On sunday we went to the Maize Maze for the afternoon and to my utter shame our team (me,mum, Elliott and Poppy) came in last place out of the three family teams.
Afterwards we ate homemade burgers and ice creams while the kids played on space hoppers and go-carts.
Then we took a tractor ride up to Jowett House Farm and watched the calves get their afternoon tea!!

Mum,Elliott and Poppy lost in the maze!  

Evie space-hopping!

Tea time!!

Monday saw another trip to York and a visit to the dungeon,Why am I always the one who gets photographed getting their head chopped off??
A delicious italian meal and a river boat trip rounded off by bow and arrow practice outside the Jorvik Centre made for yet another lovely day out.

Evie and Hermione's new best friend!

Hermione chained up at the Dungeon.

Watch out Robin Hood!!

Anyways onto my giveaway...and the randomly drawn winner is...

Taz who you can check out here Ratbag.

Congratulations to your winners. Your days out sound wonderful. I love York, there are so many great things to do for all ages.

Our local Maize Maze hasn't happened this year. I know they are up against planning each year, but I guess they may be resting the ground. Looks like you are having nice sunny days.

Congrats the winners!

That sounds like a great day out! Really fancy going to a Maise Maze but with my sense of direction we could be wandering around for months!!!

Well Done winners! We went to a Maize Maize not long ago after very heavy rain and it was not much fun sliding through it, I could have cried! :) You should get cracking with your little findings, I add them to clothes too on the zip pulls.

Your days out look great, I've yet to try out a Maize Maze, the hamburgers and ice cream sound yummy! x
