Ballet Girl and Monkey Girl went rowing with the Sea Cadets and Panda Girl and The Boy skipped bedtime to spend an evening at the lake watching them. Having Royal Marine Sergeant Papa for your Papa can sometimes mean that even when you are too little to be a Sea Cadet you can still have a go on the powerboat. Proud Mummy watched from the shore as her whole family rowed or power-boated around the lake :)
We spent a day at Hatfield House in the Adventure Playground and 25 acre Farm that is part of the estate. It was hot and brilliant!
And we also spent a fantastic day at my sister's house building a box and tyre fort in the paddock.
Preparing for battle.

Defending the castle from invasion.
