The Portsmouth Green Fair, Cooking and Riding!

Yesterday Hannah and I went to The Portsmouth Green Fair! We had a really fun,interesting day. Hannah learned a lot about solar power, alternative energy, and reducing our carbon footprint, she tried pedal power (unfortunately her legs were too little for the bikes so she cheered on her friends parents instead!!) and she danced, and danced, and danced!!!

This was the music tent powered by bicycles.

Making a Bees Wax Candle

After the fair we were hungry, so Hannah changed into her chef clothes and helped daddy to make a potato, mushroom and spinach curry (with chicken on the side for daddy).

She did a great job and the curry was really yummy!
At the end of a long busy day a little girl needs somewhere comfy to sleep - and daddy seemed just the right place :-)
This morning we had a slow start, and then Hannah went riding before having sunday dinner at my mum's house.
Here are a couple of pictures of her riding over trotting poles - she loves trotting poles!!

what a great sounding green fair - how brilliant to learn first hand about these important things. And the curry sounds delicious; the perfect end to a perfect day :)

What a busy time you have been having.
Sofie loves the shirt Hannah is wearing at the fair, and wants to know if she dyed it herself?
And thanks for the suggestion of the butterfly kit on Amazon - I am off to look up something similar for the girls.

No, not that one, she got it in Next!! It did start her passion for tie dying though! Good luck with the butterfly kit :-)
