Just when we were thinking Summer's over and the chill bite of Autumn is making us think of warm stews and soups for dinner, we go and have a weekend like this one. Glorious sunshine, everyone back outdoors playing, and the opportunity to discover a new super-kid-friendly fun place to go.
The LookOut. Great cycle trails, play area with an awesome fort, spinning chairs and great balancing beams, as well as an indoor hands-on science and discovery center. We skipped that though, in favour of building our own teepee in the forest! Huge piles of perfect length logs, enough foliage and trees to build around, and the best fun we've had in ages. The kids were hauling tree branches three times their lenth around, exploring each other's teepees (and raiding them as soon as they were abandoned for more logs!) We started small and ended with this fabulous tree hut. The kids picnic'ed and we took a pic with the camera phone (isn't it great you can do that now, when you've forgotten to bring a proper camera?)
My husband was very pleased to note that long after we'd abandoned our hut, it still stood proud. Under new ownership, it was deemed good enough to play in, rather than demolish!
