Happy camping

Firstly , although not strictly linked to our camping trip i had to share the rather lovely cake that we made for Martin's birthday last week. it was lovingly decorated with with lots of enthusiasm and rather a lot of toppings ......Mummy shall we put jam on it?. Ok then . .........Mummy shall we put some chocolate balls on it? ........... Ok then. .............Mummy shall we put some sprinkles on it ? ....well why not , in for a penny in for a pound!
It was DEEEEEELLLIICIOUS!!!!!! and the redcurrants were all from our garden. ( not the strawberries though. Our strawberries never even made it to the kitchen!)
And then this weekend a little trip in the lovely van. It was a really nice weekend, the weather was good the company was good and the camp was good. Jamie par took in a spot of whittling with the rather sharp knife he is holding in the picture ( Martins knife) . We showed him how to do it and how not to do it ...but after a while Jamie obviously decided to experiment for himself ....resulting in a wail of horror and the need for a plaster. He carried on afterwards though being a lot more careful having learnt for himself the right and wrong way to whittle a stick . ( his thumb is ok , still working and still attatched to his hand!)

The scenery was quite spectacular but as i didn't take the camera on our walks you'll have to imagine it.

It also wasn't really cold enough to warrant a camp fire , but really? camping without a fire? Where would we toast the marshmallows?
