This morning we went to Osterley House, a National Trust site in Isleworth which is a short drive away from where we live. I’ve brought Little T there a few times since I joined the National Trust, and today was the first time Mr. G joined us for a walk along the play trail on the estate grounds. It was a beautiful day to wander through the woodland area, where we saw several carpets of bluebells along the way, and a fun day to enjoy the activities from climbing tree stumps to swinging on the wooden swings hanging from the trees.
