14th Birthday celebrations

What do you do when you are stuck for party ideas and your eldest daughter is about to turn 14?  You pack up some camping gear, gather a bunch of friends together and head out to Fox Hill Hollow!

Only it was wet and cold. That’s hail falling into the space where we were intending to make a bonfire. Booooo!

So we cooked lunch ‘inside’ under the gazebo.

Once the rain and hail stopped there was time for a spot of archery.  We made use of the sheep pen as an archery no-walk area.  Very effective!

The dune buggy was a hit!

And the dogs had a great time trying to work out what was going on. They even got their fancy party clothes on.

It is a shame that it was such a cold and wet weekend but at least we got out and gave camping with teenagers a go.  Their tent leaked, we were snuggled up in the caravan 🙂
