Clumber Park

Since Friday I have been organising a surprise for Papa Bee!

It has been a very long time since we both saw our good friend Aidy, over two years I think! As the weather was forecast to be glorious today, I thought it was a perfect excuse to get out and about, and where better than Clumber Park. It was perfect as it is in the middle of Aidy and ourselves!

So last night I was busy preparing a picnic of homemade sausage rolls, cheesey straws, pasta salad, sandwiches, cakes and chocolate treats, and we packed it all up and set off, Papa Bee was clueless to the situation. I told him that we were going on a picnic but not where we were going, and certainly not that we were meeting a friend there!

When we arrived, we packed the pushchair up with the picnic. I very rarely use the pushchair but it really was a necessity to carry the picnic. There was so much picnic that we had to leave some behind, and Dan had to carry a bag and the football. 

After a few technical glitches, Aidy popped up from behind a cricket den and met Papa Bee with a manly embrace. Needless to say, he was a happy Bee!

Hiding in the trees

Mmm picnic!

Cute little gardening hut!

 It was so hot, really really hot, so we retreated into the woods for some shade. We found a big tree to hide under that was absolutely PERFECT for climbing! So Papa showed off his skills, teaching Mr Bee how to climb trees.

 Then Mr Bee got a little distressed as he wanted to be up there with Papa!

 So we found some smaller stumps to play with, more Louie sized.

 Then we found this. A maze of branches and twigs. It was lovely for Mr Bee to explore, not too big that it was dangerous for him, but big enough for him not to climb too high and hurt himself. Mama even had a go climbing in there.

I think it is safe to say that a lovely day was had by all of us. Hopefully it won't be that long until we see our lovely friend again!
