... but it doesn't mean we cant wrap up warm and enjoy the autumnal weather around us. We took a walk this weekend out in the country, jumped in puddles and enjoyed the falling leaves.




We even saw some horses (which are really not my favourite thing in the world) but fed them some apples. I think Max has taken my dislike for horses too. Yes!

Dreams coming true...

The hubs has long since had a dream to go and see an F1 Grand Prix race in the flesh. Three of his brothers got to go to the race in Turkey last year and he was beyond green with envy. His dad had always been mentioning that he would like to go to another and all the boys said they would love to go to the Abu Dhabi one.

Long story short, the tickets were booked! Mike was beyond excited this time (literally all he could talk about for a while). I was excited for him as I knew it was something that he had always wanted to do but I was a bit miffed too that Max and I would just be left at home for just over a week, just the two of us.

I thought we would get the train to my parents that week but then Mike came up with a genius plan - Max and I could go to Las Vegas to stay with my sister and her family - it would only be fair right? ;)

Having parents-in-law with lots of air miles meant it was something that could really happen so another long story short and more tickets were booked! So excited.

I was really nervous about how Max would be on the flights but he was napping as we took off and landed, both times, and on the flight back he slept pretty much the whole way back, just waking for some food once (he obviously takes after me, I can sleep literally anywhere and as a result have never really suffered too badly with jet lag).

It was such a brilliant holiday, so good to see my sister, niece and brother-in-law and I was so thrilled that my sister could meet my son! And he to obviously meet his auntie, uncle and cousin. It was great to shop together, eat out, celebrate holidays and even just sit with our babies and talk about anything and everything. Such a cliché thing to say but the time really did fly. I look forward to the day that we will all see each other again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Here are a few of the things that we got up to...







Lots of cousin and aunt & uncle time





Trips to the strip and Uncle Robbie and Brianne came to see us, from Utah












Hay ride & Halloween




Baking & Bonfire Night (with the worlds worst sparklers)






 And what Mike and his dad and 2 brothers got up to...




They were staying at the same hotel as a lot of the drivers - they met Jenson Button, Michael Schumacher, Paul Di Resta, Segio Perez and my fave Lewis Hamilton!
