It has been more than two years since we were last able to drive up to the lakes and we are SO pleased that we have done it. Kind of like a pair of comfortable shoes – just great to get back in 🙂
We arrived just before 8pm having dropped Pepsi and Max off with Auntie Jenny and Uncle Justin – thanks guys for looking after them for the weekend – Pepsi just would not cope well with the steps etc up here. The boys were unsure of what to expect (Oliver was a tiny baby the last time he was here and Elly was just 3 years old so claimed to not remember the place – that was until he got here and as soon as he saw the lodge, he seemed to remember all the things that he did that caused mummy and daddy to take deep breaths. Elliot therefore got straight into teaching Oliver to jump off the patio onto the road / stones below etc – interestingly the ever adventurous Olly has not yet partaken…
We managed to squeeze in a quick pint at the bar before settling in for the night – thus giving the boys the chance to blow off yet more steam in the park area – there is a new park area now just near the clubhouse and where at one time boars were stored off season, and mor recently touring caravans used to park. It seems that touring caravans are no longer accepted sadly 🙁
While on the swings Olly was heard shouting the following to a small group of girls (5 of the, or so), “hey girls look at me on this swing” and then when they didn’t acknowledge him he raised his voice and said “I said, hey girls look at me” 🙂 Yet more evidence that we are going to have fun with this one as he gets older….
Today, we are on to going out for breakfast and then do some shopping for the week, although at this rate we will be eating breakfast at lunchtime – it is nearly 9am and there is only daddy awake – all else are sleeping soundly in their beds….
Pray for not too much rain 🙂
