Enjoying our Summer Break

Holiday Club.  Free Holiday Club.  That's all I have to say about last week! :)

The week before:
Our favourite nature experts (our lovely ex neighbours) came to visit and the children chatted with them about moths, butterflies, nests and favourite Roman emperors...

...and they helped us identify some nests we have on our nature table.

The children's cute cousins came to visit for a few days.  They played pirates, climbed trees, played in the pool, went to sleep super late, ...

... had a few tea parties...

...and used the garden as a huge craft table :)

The cousins went home and we built a den in the woods with bestest Papa who knows all you need to know about surviving in the wild - although we did eat biscuits and we did go home for dinner and bed.  Hee hee!

Waiting for Papa's train.

The kiddies had a great opportunity to go horse riding at a nearby livery yard.
