Today we cleaned up from the party in the morning, then bathed and got ready to go out
. Kim and John took us out to Forest Row with Muffin(the most adorable dog in the world...mom can i have one??) We walked through the "forest" and grabbed a 99 before hand(a vanilla soft serve with a flake) We tried to pay for it but Kim would not allow it. It was more of an overgrown field than a forest, but it was very pretty and typical English. Afterwards, we went to "Pooh country" Where the whinnie the pooh stories were actually written, and where christopher robin actually lived. There was a pooh store, but the ceiling was so low, Dayne couldnt stand up in it! From there, we went to Forest Row and went to a pub, established in 1452 (nothing quite that old near us)and to a cafe for pizza. Did you know that it is perfectly acceptable to take a table with perfect strangers? And to bring your dog in with you??? They have dog bowls already out on the floor for it!!!
Tomorrow, we hope to spend the day in London, since Kim has to go to work during the day. Our trip to Whales looks as though it may not happen, so unless we do get ahold of this band we will be staying with cousin Robert for that time. We also may spend the night at Julie's new house, it is right on the edge of the forest and we hear it is quite lovely there.
Thats all for now, talk to you all soon,
Ashley and Dayne
P.S. For Mommy Kleven...please feed my fish!! :)
Alright, yesterday was the aniversary party and there was a grand total of 53 people here!We spent most of the morning decorating, and Dayne and I were in charge of blowing up all of the balloons and making the garden look presentable. There was plenty of food to feed at least 100 people,however, there were no american hot dogs.(what they called hot dogs were really sauges). The american candy we brought was a big hit to all of the children, they were all asking at the end if they were allowed to bring some home with them. Most people here claim they hate hershey's! Oh well. We had a nice time, there were too many names to remember. Grandma only taught us about 25...not 53!!! We spent most of the time talking with Robert,Ryan and Terry. We also had long converstaions with Uncle Robert and Aunt Pat.
