Another glorious day and we decided to head off to the park to enjoy the sunshine. We went to Lichfield park, a family favourite with plenty of space and a nice children's play area. We hadn't realised that this weekend was ''Cars in the Park'' , a car show held annually each year. Since last year they have made it free admission. The park was packed. We had a walk round, watched some of the old cars from the 1920's , had a peek at a tank and the children had fun sitting in a fire engine and trying on the fireman's helmet. It was a real blast from the past, so many cars there. I saw my first car there ( the same model) a Ford Fiesta, as well as our family car from the 1970's , a Ford Cortina. There were lots of sports cars with groups of men huddled around admiring the turbos and the paint work. Afterwards the children went to play on the play park and were there a few hours making friends and having lots of fun. We took our own drinks and snacks in the cool bag,just as well as I overheard someone saying that a bottle of water cost £1.80!! It was a really good afternoon, and apart from an ice cream each , didn't cost us anything. I will have to make a diary note to check it out again next year.
