21 go down to the sea...

annual summer camping trip time again...our largest group outing to date...11 adults and 10 kids all went down to Dorset for a weekend of fun, frolics and fossils...


...chesil beach in the mist...

we managed to celebrate two birthdays

with home made cake...now a pre-requisite for any camping trip for me I'm afraid

...fit in some walking...

there be a baby in that there purple scarf refashioned into a sling apparatus

we visited some rocky beaches

the girls jointly invested many weeks pocket money in an inflatable

(versatile that scarf!)

and my lovely friend Jane (one of the Birthday Girls) even made a dress over the weekend...
a rather small dress, but a dress, nonetheless

go camping...it rocks!

fab photos as always! it looks as if you had a lovely time, I'm very jealous, as we have had here is a poorly boy who suffered through piggy flu. I really must e-mail you, and I found a knitting magazine from 2 years ago that I have been meaning to send you for months and months... *procrastinator extrodinaire*

ooh it looks heavenly, but I've never been brave enough to take my children camping, I have a hard enough time getting them to sleep in a bed......

Sorry we missed you at the weekend. The good news is that Joey is doing much better and is back at nursery now. My nerves may take a while to recover though..

Hey Annie!

I didn't want to email you, but I got a spam email from your gmail account this morning so I think it might have been hacked?
