On Friday Ben, Ange & Anna arrived from Canada (via Norfolk). They used to live here, therefore there was much excitement about their arrival, and many people planning to gather here for the weekend for a visit. In the end, over the course of the weekend, there was about 25 people or so, most of whom ended up at Karen & Ellie's on Saturday afternoon! To say a house full is quite an understatement really.

Friday night there was dinner at home here, as the clans began to gather. The plan for Saturday was to have a buffet lunch, and then head to the park for the afternoon. Luckily the weather co-operated, and it was a warm sunny afternoon. That didn't make it any easier to get 20 some people organized and out the door, including many children! At the park the guys played football, kids played in the park and fed the swans, and everyone had a nice time visiting in the sun. Later some people headed home while others gathered at K&E'd for a takeaway curry. Once the kids had gone to bed, we pulled out Cranium and it was Canada vs. England, which the Canadians won despite it being a UK edition.

Sunday morning started with a huge brunch at Rachel's, then many people had to begin their trek home. The rest of us went to Portchester Castle, but there was no storming of the castle to be done that day. Perhaps Anna is still to small to learn such behavior! Sunday evening it was girls night out, and we went to the Talking Heads to watch some friends play in their band Power Bulge. The band was awesome, you could tell they were having fun on stage and the music was great. There was much dancing as well!
