Saturday adventure

We needed to make a run to Costco in Milton Keynes so we decided to hit a few English Heritages sites along the way. We have to take full advantage of our membership!151037

152038091007154040Our first stop was Wrest Park. It was BEAUTIFUL and Muddy and RAINY!  But we had a great time. I couldn’t imagine living in such an amazing home. It sure reminded us of Downton Abbey.  We enjoyed our picnic lunch to avoid the rain. The house to the left is where they sometimes had tea and small social engagements.



Then we headed to Houghton House. It was was built in the 1615 as a hunting lodge and has an interesting story not to mention a beautiful view. William was asleep in the car while Madeline and Nick explored. It was a very fun morning that ended with a trip to Costco for a living room rug.
