Blenheim Playground

On Saturday we woke up to an unexpectedly beautiful morning. We hadn't made any plans because we were anticipating rain and we didn't want to waste the day. We went back up to Blenheim Palace because we hadn't made it over to the playground and butterfly house. It was lots of fun for the kids. Giant chess sets, swings, a hedge maze and several playgrounds all made for a very happy 2 and 4 year old.

Aidan on the monkey bars - he made it all the way across!
