Let's go to an Air Show - Part 1

This post is a few weeks late, sorry.

We went to Abingdon Air & Country Show on the 27th April. It was a nice hot day and we wanted a little family adventure. It was about an hour away from home so we wanted to make the most of it.
As soon as you walk in the gates you see a big army helicopter. It's huge & holds about 20 people (well that's what I think he said). We could go in it and have a look, but the queue was big so the plan was to go back later.

Little Miss P wanted to go straight on the rides, but first we came across these little ferret. There was a ferret race going on. It was only 50p to do a little bet and all the money goes to a ferret charity.

Of course we chose the white ferret, as Little Miss P has a white Guinea pig called Snuffles. We nearly won the bet but the little ferret didn't get her whole body out, just her head then went back :0(
But it was fun for all of us.

At the air show there was a display of old cars. We found this beast of an old fire engine. Little Miss P loved seeing it and wanted to see in it, but we couldn't. Sad times, but i am guessing that's due to keeping it in the best possible working order.

Little Miss P couldn't believe her eyes when she saw a Formula 1 racing car, she loves them (there's a bit of another story here, but i'll just tell a little bit of it so you get it; Mr P & Little Miss P love watching the Grand Prix together on a Sunday - they've been doing it from when Little Miss P was born). So seeing this with her daddy made her day. I think you can tell that by the her face.

I think this is a good place to stop and put the rest of the day in Part 2, so keep an eye out for it!
