Isla and Evie have been outside most of this week! They've been out in the garden and also at the park. We made rocky road chocolate squares, which involved a lot of chocolate-spoon-licking, and they went for a ride on Thomas at the supermarket. They have really been enjoying each others company by playing at picnics, doctors and journeys together. I think Evie will miss Isla a lot when she is at school everyday.
We went on a big adventure this weekend - Isla and Evie's first camping trip under canvas! We went to Thistledown Farm in Nympsfield, Gloucestershire. We pitched our tent at the bottom of a field near some oak trees and spent a brilliant weekend around the campfire and running about on the grass. Isla and Evie went off on little adventures together to find things around the field and also to find sticks (which were handy for the fire). We played a lot of cards and 'Guess Who' and walked around Woodchester Park nearby. There is a gliding club near Woodchester Park and we could see lots of gliders in the sky. We could hear them taking off while we were at Woodchester Mansion. The glider winch made spooky sounds that Isla thought were Scooby-Doo ghosts in the gothic building. There were lots of paragliders in the sky too. At the end of our stay we had an exciting ride on a little tractor back up to our car, where there was a lovely pink tractor that Isla and Evie had a go at driving.
