A mish mash of an update for you, I have a bunch of photos on my phone documenting the mundane and not so mundane events in Dan and my life so for your viewing pleasure here we are about to head off to a fancy hats required party.
The weekend before last, Pam and George came to visit Dan and I. We had a day trip out to Longleat, which is a huge safari park. We had such a good time there, driving through the safari (seeing the monkeys, lions, tigers, deer, and wolves up close and personal).
The monkey part of the safari was a bit sketchy as we watched monkeys scaling vehicles to tear off bumper sticks, windshield wipers, whatever they could get their hands on (we emerged unscathed and saw cute little baby monkeys).
We also went on a boat cruise across a lake that contained some sea lions and hippos (so bizarre to see hippos chilling out in a lake in England).
We also were able to walk around the country house, which is absolutely huge and decadent and occupied by the rather eccentric Marquess of Bath (who apparently has had affairs with over 70 women to whom he refers to as his “wifelets”).
It was a really fun day and really neat as I’ve never been to any sort of safari park before. We had a nice time visiting with George and Pam and enjoying the lovely weather (they jet off to Australia soon to even lovelier weather!).
Now this past weekend, Dan and I attended our friends, Jon and Ashley’s, highly anticipated wedding. They were married at a beautiful historic church in Tarrant Monkton with an amazing reception afterwards at the pub called the Langton Arms. We had such a good time, it was a beautiful wedding and the day was just perfect (Dan’s best man speech seemed to go down well too! 🙂 ).
