|The Birthday Girl, very please with her present.|
Daddy and I had been wracking our brains on what to do on the day, the weather had been changing from rain to nice, but as we got closer it was dry so we decided to go to Martin Mere because Summer loves Ducks! We asked Nanna, Grandad and Auntie Kris if they would like to join us, we arranged a time and we decided to meet their rather than going in convoy.

When we caught up with them Grandad and Kacy, Kacy was sat on a bench and Grandad had hold of Kacy's shoe, while on the stepping stones she managed to dunk her feet into the water meaning that Kacy got a very wet foot.
|Kacy got her wet shoes back on and carried on|
|I thought what they did with the Wellies was fantastic, I did ask Daddy if we could do that he said no|
|The Den, Ducks and stepping stones.|
We could see people getting in and out of canoes, which I thought was brilliant. Nanna went to find out how much it would cost to have a go, the boat Safari was £6 a person which we thought was expensive, but the little cannons boats were £6 for an hour and we could have 2 adults and 2 children in one, Daddy and I decided to have Kira and Summer in our boat and Auntie Kris, Grandad and Kacy in another.
We got ready and we were briefed where we could go and what to do if we tipped out of the boat. Daddy, Kira, Summer and I got in first, we bumped into a fair few of the bank sides, saying I didn't know what I was doing. Auntie Kris decided to take her phone with her so she could take photos, I didn't, I was worried that I would drop mine.

We went off on our own, it was too difficult to stay together, we didn't need to see them we could hear them. We saw one family having a picnic on the boat, really wished I had taken my phone to take photos it was beautiful around the lake so peaceful, we saw a duck asleep on the bank and a fair few in the water they came up to the boat expecting to be fed. Each time we saw the ducks, the girls said hello and bye to the ducks. We saw Grandad, Kacy and Auntie Kris a couple of times as soon as we saw them we managed to lose each other again. We finally caught up with them again they were waiting for us, Auntie Kris wanted to take a boat selfie.it soon started to rain so it was time to head back, Grandad wanted to make it into a race, Grandad decided to turn their boat around while we went the way we were facing, we won, so drinks were on Grandad! We thought we had been out for a good 45 minutes to an hour got back and we had only been out for 25 minutes. The girls loved it so will be definitely doing something like this again.
|You can just about see Summer over Daddy's right shoulder.|
We got of the cannons gave back out life jackets, got some drinks and headed of to find some more things to see. Summer was getting tired by this point, and wanting cuddles. Grandad took the opportunity to have cuddles, which he doesn't often get from Summer. Whilst Auntie Kris took the opportunity to get a family photo

Grandad soon started to act like a kid, as well and was keeping the girls entertained by playing hide and seek and all sorts of silly games, which at one point we walked around in a circle to try and catch Grandad and Kira out.
When we finally came out of the maze the girls and Auntie Kris had enough so we started to find our way back, but found a beautiful building made out of wood, which inside you could bird watch which the girls loved, the view was beautiful you could spend hours just sat watching the birds take off and land.
We soon found the maze which was fantastic, so much to see and do, like a massive nest with beautiful wooden carved eggs in them, ponds, beavers, beautiful wooden carved chairs, all sorts.

|Grandad came prepared with binoculars for the girls.|
As we walking out Auntie Kris wanted another family photo, while Daddy and Grandad decided to act like big kids.
|I had no idea Daddy was doing that until after Kris took the photo.|
On the way back to the car, we found a fair few more of the bird watching things and the girls went in to them to see what they could see but spent seconds in each one, we soon found our way back and got to the park, it was time for ice cream and let the girls play on the park for 20 minutes or so before heading home.
When we got home I persuaded Summer to change her outfit to her new dress, she was then allowed to open her presents from Nanna, Grandad and Auntie Kris. Once that was done she got to see her birthday cake, you can tell from her face she loved it.
|The Birthday Girl.|
We had a fantastic day out and Summer had a fantastic birthday, have you done anything wonderful this Summer?
