Autumn Holiday 2012

We have been planning and looking forward to our autumn holiday since we got home from last years adventure. This year we opted for a camping trip in the beautiful Cotswold countryside. We were all packed up on Wednesday evening and set out on Thursday morning. That is when things started to go wrong!
Mr Bee came down with chicken pox :(

 We arrived and Mr Bee was a star whilst Papa and I set up our home for the weekend. He played football whilst we organised tents and beds and storage. We popped to the local supermarket for some shopping and had a lovely evening around the barbeque eating yummy marinaded chicken and rice followed by toasted marshmallows (of course).

 An exhausted Mr Bee went to sleep nice and early so Papa and I stayed up around the fire nibbling biscuits and reading.
 Friday morning we visited Cirencester. What a beautiful little town!
 It was late morning when we stumbled upon 'He Says She Waffles' a cute little waffle shop down a little alley. We enjoyed yummy waffles, tea and milkshake for the poorly boy.
 We wandered for a while, buying Louie some new books,  a little playmobil set to cheer him up and some bits from the antique fair to put in our house box.
In the afternoon we visited the Cotswold country park and beach. It was really quiet and we were the only ones there for a while. We walked around the lakes and as there were no children around, we had a little play on the park.
 We had a rough night of Mr Bee waking up with his spots hurting and my dormant cold seemed to be coming out. Papa cooked us yummy bacon sandwiches for breakfast and we lazily got ready to visit Bourton on the Water.

 We wandered the pretty little shops, had tea in a sweet little tea room and took the boys to the motor museum. Whilst we were there, I seemed to get even more poorly so we made the decision to travel home in the evening, a day early.
We packed away our tents before having an early barbeque dinner of steak, mushrooms and garlic bread, all done on our tiny little barbeque. We didn't get to explore the pretty campsite, walk around the lakes, go in the swimming pool or soft play area, and we didn't get to visit the last few places that we had planned.
So our Sunday has been spent feeling sorry for ourselves. Papa has been a star unpacking everything for us and even making us brunch in bed. Hopefully, we will all be feeling better soon :)
