2nd April 2010

Continuing on from yesterdays post .
We had intended to spend quite a while at Whitworth Hall but to be honest after a walk around there wasn't much else to do so we jumped back in the car and travelled a bit further , coming to a stop at Hamsterley Forest.



The boys had great fun on the adventure playground .



and throwing stones ( I must have dozens of photos like this one )



Now Hamsterley Forest is a dog walkers/ bike riders paradise and there are different coloured walks/rides you can follow depending on your ability and how far you actually want to walk.





We chose what we thought was the easy 1 mile walk !!!



Turns out it was the harder 4.5 mile walk !!



Gabe walked all the way and still had a smile on his face, Milo on the otherhand was worn out - as was I .



Milo actually said he would like to wake up to this view - I think I'd have to agree.

Looks great fun! We just took the boys for a local walk and it started to pour down a few minutes in but they were troopers and both made it to the end (with the promise of ice cream when we got home - I offered them hot chocolate thinking it made more sense but they wanted ice cream!).

Let's hope there a few sunny spots between the rain over Easter. Have a great break!

A lovely place to walk. I love the rosiness in Gabriels cheeks after all that walking! x
