This weekend was one of those lovely times where we just all hung out and had a really nice time together as a family. We don’t often get weekends where we aren’t running around trying to achieve the seemingly impossible on our time off work.
It helped I think that the sun was shining and we were able to spend all our time outdoors.
On Saturday we went to a birthday party at Albrighton Hall. It was a ‘Pinecone Party’ and the theme was knights and princesses. The kids absolutely loved it.
I’ve not been to that sort of party before and I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was fantastic. There were a variety of activities to do such as dragon making (out of pinecones and clay), crown making (using leaves and pipe cleaners) and Meg’s favourite – sword making! We also played hide and seek in the little woodland area, toasted marshmallows on the campfire and went on a treasure hunt. I took so many photos it’s been difficult to choose which ones to use!
On Sunday we took Alfie for a walk out to our local woodlands. We decided to to try a route we’ve not done before, through some fields and up a fairly steep track before heading into the Outwoods. We were overtaken by several runners along the way and I think possibly I was more exhausted than the kids by the end of it but it was a really lovely time. It was so peaceful and Meg, Eli and even Alfie were really well behaved!
