I love going to see the illuminations in Blackpool! We used to go every year when I was younger. As my parents now live in Blackpool we still see them regularly. Bob had never seen them and I couldn’t wait to take her.

We had a wonderful time! Bob loved looking at all of them but I think that she especially liked the trams and the Teddy Bears Picnic!

The teddy bears used to be set in a big scene but over time they have been damaged. When I was younger, they were my favourites. They are still the reason that I go to the illuminations but I think that, this time, my favourites were the Four Seasons.

Bob was a bit unsure of the pirates. I think that she was afraid they were going to make her walk the plank!

We walked through some of the illuminations but then we got on a tram as it was a bit far to walk through them all. There are about 5 miles of them!

My Fun Photo Favourite from last week was by Tabitha over at Fresh Mommy Blog. She had made a gorgeous collage from photos that she had taken with her iPhone! Here is a taster, visit her blog to see the whole thing. It is well worth a visit!

As a reward Tabitha gets to tell me how she made her lovely collage. 😉 She can also display the Fun Photo Favourite badge if she wishes.
