Party in the Park RAF Leuchars

Last weekend we were in Scotland visiting Mr M's family.  His dad (Gramps) is serving in the RAF at Leuchars and they had a family day/concert as the base is closing this year and going to be used by the army.  The 'Party in the Park' was a way for current and previous families to celebrate their time on the base.  Mr M had worked on the base as a civilian when we lived in Scotland.

The line up looked good.  Gramps was looking forward to Big Country

Although it was a free event we all had to wear our wrist bands.

Now the one thing you can't guarantee in Britain is the weather.  The Friday had been glorious and the Sunday was forecast to be hot (which it was and we had a family BBQ - fantastic time was had by all).

As we started to walk to the venue we could feel spitting - it's ok it'll pass.  As we got to the venue the heavens opened!

Baby M was fine as he was in his pushchair cosy under his waterproof cover.  We got the brollies out and do what the British do best - go to the bar!

The setting was beautiful - the weather not so much.  It kept raining heavier and heavier.

Unfortunately due to the weather both flying displays were cancelled.

Once Big Country had played the fireworks started and the day ended an hour early.

If the weather had been better it would have been fantastic but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and there was a great variety of families and some with 3 generations like ours all enjoying a day together
