We’ve Been On a Bear Hunt!

I’m sorry for the lack of blogs recently, I promise there’s many wonderful things in the pipeline, including some yummy recipes, wonderful tutorials and exciting competitions. Recently I have found myself somewhat preoccupied with keeping the kids and puppy entertained, I’m sure many of you have been doing similar. We’ve had lots of wonderful trips out and about, here are just a few pics from our recent bear hunt at Calke Abbey in Derbyshire!

The National Trust had kindly provided maps for the young explorers, so off we went on a bear hunt!

Various Olympic inspired activities had to be completed during the expedition.

Occasionally we were lucky enough to find a sign that aided us on our way.

Our search ended when we found the Teddy Bear Olympics taking place in the Ice house!

The children were rewarded with bear shaped shortbread at the end of their hunt, while I took the time to say hello to the resident deer.

I even spied this most handsome white fellow off in the distance.

The spotty crocodile found time to explore and get overly excited at every new smell and sight. All in all everyone had a wonderful day out and we shall be visiting again soon.
