Thanks to the tail end of Hurricane Bill whooshing over the South West, we decided to deffer our trip away by one day - no one wanted to battle with the high winds and heavy rain and I was one of them!!
So off we trotted to our secret little hideout in Somerset, where we enjoyed 5 days of sunny skies (sometimes) and plenty of laughter.
We were the first to pitch up - my Sis and little nephew arrived shortly afterwards and then finally "The Tux's" made an appearance to complete our merry tribe of happy campers.
Our days have been really relaxing - everyone kept themselves occupied by enjoying time splashing about in the indoor and outdoor pools - the guys have skated, scooted and ridden their bikes as well as keeping us oldies entertained with their silly antics.
With no TV's, computers, DVD's or XBox's in sight we have enjoyed the opportunity to spend some quality family time together. Lazy days spent pottering around at snail pace was just what we all needed before the back to school routine begins.
This is the second year we have spent August Bank Holiday escaping inland and we had so much fun that we have made plans to do it all again next year.
Our tenting equipment has been dusted off and packed away, the washing machine is busy gurring its way through the piles of dirty laundry, Hubs is cooking supper and the guys are curled up on the sofa watching a film - everyone is chilled out and relaxed - so I'm off to scrap!
September Prima Build a Page went live today - check out the sketch right here.
I used photographs of Hubs grandparents on their wedding day for my interpretation of the sketch.
Cutie Catchers patterned paper, Times alphas, Artistry flowers, Collage Mulberry papers and Say it in Pearls all from Prima Marketing.
Hope your BH weekend was fun.
Thanks for popping by.
