easter den building

Easter Day we spent with my family.
A delicious Sunday roast dinner, where we ate roasted spring lamb, followed by the richest darkest chocolate mousse.
Suitably stuffed, we all de-camped to the nearby bluebell wood, where we set to working off the calories by building our own bivouac.
There is already the most amazing tipi den, which the boys and every other child use as their own.  But this year we decided to make our very own.
Every member of my family was seen running through the woods, gathering large branches, calling to each other with owl hoots or cuckoo calls.
I think this new den will be added to over the years... to make a grander alternative to the original bluebell den!
Maybe we have just invented a new Easter Day family tradition.

    Hi Luly
    It was lovely to read your comments and see the photos.

    Yes, it was a special day and I'm glad we all made the effort (well nearly all).

    Luv M

  6. Oh dear, blogger isn't my friend today, this is my 3rd attempt to comment!
    Den building is the very best - it was my fav activity as a child/young teenager and I can't wait to see our 2 exploring it too. An Easter tradition of it sounds perfect - so you!
    Thank you for your lovely comment Lou :-) Sadly our camper is not for rent - but we'd love to camp alongside you someday - what jolly larks that would be!
    Have a lovely week,
    D x

  7. Sounds like a lovely tradition! There is no structure quite as earthy and adventurous for a child as a tipi.


Hello! Thank you for leaving a comment... I love to hear from you. Have a great day! Lou x
