Scott, Lucy and Jack went back to work/school the day after our road trip, and Harry and Tom went back on Tuesday 12th.
The next day Scott and I took the kids to school, then headed off to Burghley House, near Stamford, to attend the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Picnic. We had been given tickets (invitation only) through Scott's work.
It was quite posh (in a British, Wellington Boot kind of way), and it was rather nice wandering through the park in a floaty long dress and glittery jewelry (me, not Scott!)
We had our picnic, then went off to look around. There was a big bandstand, and various other tents and displays.
Scott took the picture below... I didn't get a picture directly of the Queen - I was too busy waving!
The Queen then went to the tented area of the park, and Scott and I settled ourselves in an open area of the park, ready for the Red Arrows, and The Blades, who were later on the programme.
The aerial displays were fantastic! The pictures below of are of The Blades - who are all former Red Arrow pilots.
I'm always a bit nervous when they fly so close to each other...
