The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 16

Despite Little Miss taking a few days to properly get over last week's vomiting session (thankfully the rest of us seemed to have managed to dodge that one) we had a better week. First up was Bigger Miss's belated birthday treat to do Tree Top Junior and go for a pizza with a friend. The car was finally fixed on Monday (albeit not cheaply) and so we were able to meet up with some friends for a walk and a play. We survived looking after a friends kids for two days and found a new favourite place for outdoor adventures - all helped by lots of sunshine. We even managed to fit in a little bit of Easter crafting. Can't wait for a rest and return to normality next week!

Go Ape Tree Top Junior, Alice Holt Forest
I took loads of pictures of Bigger Miss on her Go Ape adventure so I just has to do a collage. She and her friend had a great time and managed 5 rounds in their alloted hour. She loved it and it was a real treat.

Little Miss on the beautiful walk around Alresford with some friends. She was actually watching a duck but the cottage is pretty cool with it's rooms crossing the chalk stream.
picnic at Waggoner's Wells, National Trust
Our new favourite place - we had a picnic and spent all afternoon outside exploring.
Wishing Well and climbing roots, Waggoner's Wells, National Trust
There was so much to explore, three lakes, tree roots to climb, wishing wells and bridges to play pooh sticks - we will definitely be going back (and there will be a Country Kids post at some point!)

duckling family, Waggoner's Wells, National Trust
We even saw the most adorable family of fluffy ducklings.
Spring flowers- narcissus and pink blossom
And I had to take some flower pics - loved these narcissus and the glorious pink blossom. 
Homemade cards and Easter crafts
Your eyes are not deceiving you, these are Easter crafts (well some are!) The girls made Easter bonnets and we used Red Ted Craft to try and make some egg carton chicken egg cups (not as easy as she makes it look!) The top picture is of the birthday cards that my very clever (and far better at crafting than me) Bigger Miss made for all the family birthdays this week

For more sunny Easter holiday adventures head on over to the Boy and Me and all the other lovely photo mad peeps dong 365's...
