He did not know what he wanted to do so I said leave it to me!
He was a bit worried and a little scared I think when I said to tell his friends to bring
a sleeping bag, a cushion and a torch and they would be with us all weekend.
But not knowing made it more exciting.
Friday which was his Birthday we had a family celebration, starting with presents,
a special Birthday breakfast then cake. Later on we went to our local pub so he could
order his first drink and had a lovely meal there.
On Sat it was a early start. They all spent time in the cars trying to guess
where they were going.
After getting kitted up they headed for the trees.
I did not stay to watch as I am scared of heights. They also went on a very high
zip wire. Then it was a picnic lunch then off again mountain biking around the woods
for the afternoon.
They came home exhausted had a pizza each for tea then off again in the cars , this time
with their torches. We dropped them off in the dark at a Maize Maze.
While they were there we cleared the lounge so they had room to sleep in their sleeping bags
and prepared the coffee table full of food and drink for them all to watch the film 'The Maze.'
When they got back. Day One a success!
Sunday was not a early start, which I think they all appreciated.
We took them Go Karting then to a Giant Zip Wire across a quarry then had a another picnic in the sun Then ended the day at the pub with our son buying his friends a much needed cold drink.
We had been so lucky the weekend had been beautiful. And they all went home exhausted but
with happy memories.
Boys will be boys, I still have one unclaimed pillow and a bag with trainers in.....
