We arrived home from our summer holiday camping trip yesterday.
The journey home was a long one but at least the sun was out.
Unlike our week away. It rained every day and so hard on the Sunday that out tent was flooded and ended up floating on the rain water. If it wasn't for the little ones it would have been fine. However we do have little ones and as they need to be warm and dry we had to take drastic measures. So new tent shopping we went.
Lucky for us Millets had a half price tent sale and we got a whoppa for a fantastic price.
Back at the campsite we were able to see the areas least rain affected areas and picked a great one.
To cut a long story short, we washed and dried our stuff moved to our new tent (its huge) and got on with the rest of our holiday.
The highlight had to be our day at The New Forrest Show, it was a fantastic day with tons to see, do, buy and try. I hope to go again next year
We still enjoyed the break well you cant let the weather stop you.
On the Wednesday we went into Lymington and saw Princess Anne at the sailing club.
On Thursday we went to The New Forest Show. It was a long day with lots of walking ( the show is massive). The boys did so well walking for over 5 hours. Yes we had some pit stops but I still think they did well especially with Harley still getting over the pox and Oakley's first spot starting to show.
We had lunch in a dry spot under a tree whilst the rain poured down, the boys loved it. There was live music playing and it was a little festival like.
We had a ride on a horse and cart and walked through the most beautiful wild flower meadow. The boys made bird feeders and planted seeds to attract honey bees. I got a pair of Fitflops and the boys all got new Crocs. A great day was had by all. x
As you can see the sun did shine a little between the the downpours and it is these moments that I shall try to remember.
