Pooh Sticks in London

We recently went upto London to celebrate hubby's Uncle and Aunties 40th wedding anniversary. It was a big family event and we had the most beautiful day for it.
We started off sharing lunch together at a quite pub and then went on to this most beautiful place tucked away in London. I can't remember the name of this park at the moment, so will update post as and when I do.

The kids (and some adults alike) very much enjoyed playing 'Pooh Sticks'
It is a game my eldest learnt by watching Whinnie the Pooh.
What you have to do is gather some sticks (feathers or leaves will work too) and stand on a bridge that goes over a stream or river etc, then at the same time as your competitor throw your stick into the stream.. run as quick as you can to the other side of the bridge and wait to see who's stick appears first. Here are some snap shots of the event!

Here are a few other shots from the day..

Walking with Nanny and Grampy


  1. It's nice to get out with the family - I'm so glad you had great weather for it.

  2. Sounds lovely - I'm glad you were able to get out and spend time with the family and had good weather with it.
