Boys Club and classic cars

Ralph Lauren T-shirt


So over the weekend we went to a classic car show at St Fagans -  it was a beautiful day and the cars were shining and glistering in the sun. With an array of vintage morris minors, my favourite being the Morris Traveller, a car I so wish to own and have long summer adventures by the sea in. The two boys were in the their element, with John checking out some American imported classic and Mr A running around like the cheeky monkey his is.

It's funny how boys naturally love motorcars, it seems simply built-in to their DNA. It was great for John and Mr A to have a real man bonding day, although I have to say I enjoyed as much as them, as I have never liked new cars and my heart lies with the vintage ones.

Mr A also got to try out his new shorts printed with fish and was a present from the Grandmother. I think that his little straw hat may feature in many more posts as he loves it so much and it keeps his head out of the sun so it's a win win all round. He is also wearing a little Fred Perry Polo John bought for him at Christmas time.

After the car show we had a walk around, we visited the farm house and saw the little piglets that are now growing up very fast and had a spot of lunch on the grass. We then took the tractor train up to the castle and went to the "secret" rose garden, which is simply beautiful and a nice quite spot.

I think this was also the first time John has worn shorts this year, which is a nice change from jeans all year round. He picked this Penguin shorts up last year at one of the only independent menswear stores in Cardiff - Pavilion - check it out if your in town. He is also wearing a Ralph Lauren T-shirt and Vera shoes.
