Gibside and Beaver camp

It's been a very busy few days since Harry and Peter's cousins left. We spent the weekend playing lots of board games, harvesting and clearing old plants at the allotment and going to the cinema to see Planes 2, which we all really enjoyed. Peter especially loves board games at the moment! 

Stuart took the boys to Gibside for the day on Monday, while I had a lovely and relaxing day at a spa with my mum, her friend and my sister. It was very much needed by us all and I think we decided to make it an annual trip!

Harry was very excited about going to his Beavers sleepover yesterday morning!

We walked to Whitburn beach, explored some rock pools and had ice cream before walking back to do some archery. Unfortunately, Harry was sick shortly after this (he did look a bit pale and unwell!) so I brought him home for the night instead of sleeping over there in the bunk rooms. He fell asleep on the way home and didn't wake up until this morning, when he felt fine. We had a relaxing morning then went back to join in the Beaver afternoon activities. Harry has baked cakes, tied knots, played rounders and learned about putting up a tent. Peter came too as Stuart had to work and he did really well joining in and listening. We told him he is a Beaver In Training! Harry loved it, despite the unexpected trip home and he has earned fitness and camp craft badges.
