Bank holiday smiles!

 Don't you just love a sunny bank holiday?  Well my entry for Annie's Friday smiles this week come from last weekend's fun.  Alex and I scrambled all around the massive outcrop of rocks shown on the photo behind Alex.  It is in Derbyshire, not too far from us and is called Higger Tor.
It is a wonderful place for bouldering (climbing without ropes),
and weaselling (crawling through tight spaces - I didn't get stuck this time!).
I also took Alex to Chatsworth adventure playground where he had a wonderful time clambering round the fort,
sliding down the slides, damming the stream and playing in the sand with a friend
before eating the most enormous ice cream I have ever seen! Sadly, it doesn't look like the weather is going to be as kind this weekend, which is a shame as Alex and I are going camping for the first time... photos will follow next weekend.  In the meantime, have a good weekend.

Looks like a lot of fun. My goodness, Alex is growing by leaps and bounds, Caro!

Sorry I'm so late calling by this week...I've had an extra day with my munchkins today. :-) Lots and lots of fun and giggles all day.
What happy photos...thanks for sharing :-)

Not only is Alex (STILL) one of the most spoiled and photographed young man, he is also one of the most athletic. No roots will grow on him. What a great way to keep him active.

Hmmn! I am not sure quite who was having the most fun there looking at the smiles!
I love Chatsworth though I didn't get on the play ground!
Hugs and Happy Camping!

Hi Caro, great to see Alex having such fun at the weekend and to read that you got some sun, something we haven't seen much off lately. Hope it brightens up for your camping experience this weekend. Elizabeth xx

Surely the best way to spend the weekend, and the ice cream finishing it all off perfectly :)
