Weekend Recap

Happy Monday, blogland!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Hubby and I headed up north to Bolton for the weekend to spend some time with some very dear friends, Bob and Laura, who are getting hitched in December. Hubs is actually Bob's Best Man, so he was put to his first test on Saturday when it was time to pick out some suits. Obviously, these two man-sized five-year-olds could not be trusted to carry out this simple task alone, so Laura and I tagged along to supervise...
"Have you seen my peacock?!"
It's Willy Wonka!

Once suit shopping was successfully crossed off the wedding to-do list, we headed to the wedding venue 
to take a sneak peek at the room and have a well-earned brew/pint. The rest of Saturday 
was spent catching up, watching football (the boys) and eating...

After breakfast in bed on Sunday morning, we put on our tourist hats and hit up 
the top places to visit in Bolton (sshhh! there aren't many).

Making wishes in the Turton Wishing Well...
 Who knew four-pence could be so entertaining :)

Walking in the footsteps of long-dead rich people at Turton Tower...
Take note of the sign: "suitable for children over three years of age"

Finally, on our whistle-stop tour of Bolton's Finest, 
we headed to the Reebok Stadium, home to Bolton Wanderers FC...

A great weekend was had by all 
and we can't wait until the next time :)
