Hiding, Seeking, Knights and Treasure….

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again “nowt better than fresh air to blow away the cobwebs” and so that’s exactly what we did this Sunday, get some fresh air. We do have a lot of dusty musty cobwebs hanging over this family at present, a bit of bonding time in the great outdoors I thought would do us all some good. So I packed hot chocolate, coffee, muffins and biscuits and we headed off to a favourite spot. Cobwebs1

I love all the vibrant mosses growing up the banks and carpeting the woodlands. The plantation after a warm summer and then recent rains, seemed almost luminous in places.cobweb3

On route we play a few games of hide and seek, giving the boys the opportunity to wrestle with the undergrowth and clamber into large bushes, they are in there somewhere..




When we reach the ruins a game of knights and castles is played out, whilst I set out the refreshments.


Tink plays strong man with a discarded branch, not quiet managing to lift it over his head, but close..


Then Tink reveals the treasure trove he has brought and heads off to hide it, we all get a go at hunting it out..


Happy families for all, as we return to the car just in time to avoid the rain…

    Quality family time, and spent outdoors – great! What fun you all had playing games, exploring and being creative. I love the editing on your photos and the lovely one of the boys with their Dad at the end. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

    Noticed the treasure photo first and thought you’d been geocaching :) I like the selective colour on the photos, looks a fun few hours out in the fresh air :)
