So the weekend just gone we went camping. A friend of ours, their father owns some land as he is a bee keeper. I know right?! An actual bee keeper. So cool. So we had wanted to test out camping with Stan for a while but didn't have the time or funds to commit to a big old affair. Anyway said friend invites us up to their father's field to have a fun night under the stars. Well it really was so much fun. The kids LOVED it - seriously, no little tikes plastic stuff anywhere yet they were as happy as larry making mud pies (or pesto pasta as my friends child insisted!) and stepping across cut logs before the 'crocodile' got them, catching insects in their nets, inspecting owl poo for bones, swinging on the tractor tyre swing and going for (slightly dicey, thanks Ben!) wheelbarrow rides!
We packed up before rain set in, bought some honey from my friend's dad and went home for a nice warm bath! We will definitely be doing it again before the Summer ends. It really was so lovely, and so damn simple.
