The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 22

It's been an adventurous week according to Little Miss's declaration in the car yesterday. I guess she's right up to a point - it has certainly been a busy half term. We went to stay at Grandma's for a couple of days, explored Winnie the Pooh country, visited Rollercoaster Dad at work, went to see the Lego Movie, the girls did cooking with Daddy and decoupage with Mummy, built a dam and tried our hand at orienteering and there is more busyness planned before they return to school. We even squeezed in a barbecue today. I have a multitude of photos so here are just a few:

macro Allium flower
Ubiquitous flower from Grandma's garden. Actually quite tough to choose as took loads of pictures as unlike us she actually has some flowers! 
Fun with the garden trolley
The girls spent hours pulling each other and their teddies around Grandma's garden on her garden trolley - and when they got bored of that there was the bikes !
view from the secret cave, Lake Wood, Woodland Trust
Dog walks at Grandma's are the best when you go somewhere this exciting - caves, boathouses, tunnels and rocks to climb.
the tunnel, Lake Wood, Woodland Trust
Heading into one of the 'secret' tunnels!
Winnie the Pooh's Enchanted Place, Ashdown Forest
Winnie the Pooh's 'Enchanted Place' on Ashdown Forest - one of my favourite ever places.
building a dam, #50things, Waggoner's Wells, National Trust
Ticking off another of our #50things - building a dam across a stream. We visited our new favourite place - Waggoner's Wells again for a spot of dam building.
decoupage project of Ikea Knuff Magazine Rack, Ikea Hack
The girls and I had lots of fun decoupaging these Knuff IkeaMagazine racks - our first go at decoupage and it was really easy! 
Sheltering under the Gunnera leaves, The Vyne, National Trust
Using Bigger Miss's voucher from the National Trust that she got last year for completing 25 of her #50things we revisited the Vyne and spent most of the time having a go at orienteering in the very muddy woods (another #50things ticked off) but I didn't get any pics of them doing it but they did have fun admiring the size of the Gunnera leaves.
For lots more half term fun head on over to The Boy and Me:
