Firstly Happy Birthday to Lewis and Wes xx

 

Today I saw a squirrel. It was on a path and then it ran on the grass and up a tree.

We were at a beautiful park having a fruit picnic. Not cupcakes.

We got the fruit from a little stall. We got strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. The man gave us a free mandarin and banana too. My favourite was blueberries and raspberries.

It only cost £3. Pounds is the money here in England. The city is called London.

I saw a two level bus called a double decker. It was red. I also saw lots of people riding bikes.
