It’s time to PARTY!! And we were the first to arrive (makes a change!), so Evie gets Bellas full attention as they play with the balloons.
A head full of static – how fun! Bean suits a Mohawk to should she ever want one!
A big silk parachute comes out for songs and games.
What – did someone mention ice-cream time?? Let’s go!
Out into the indoor playground, a great place for adventure when it’s wet outside.
You can do the ladder but this one is still a little beyond you!
The favourite side – a fast one to!

Happy birthday Bella.
Meeting up with Omi, we give the shotgun biking another go around the grounds of Lowther park, Whale and Askham. Some hills, some puddles, some bumpies, some quiet roads, makes for a good second introduction.
After a good hours ride Evie warms up with a very special babychino and a sausage in the cafe. Powered up she is ready for a good run around!
Practicing her jumping, and a good place to play peekaboo, it is hard to get her to say bye bye to Omi, but we have other friends to go and meet this afternoon.
Back in the car and on to the woods at Cliburn, which is great for some flat balance biking .
We meet up with Jess and Osh, as well as Liz with the twinnies and Charlie. Charlie speeds off on his bike, but he does have pedals to turn, whilst Evie tries to keep up with Osh and Jacob and Isaac chill out.
Deep in conversation comparing bikes and discussing skill techniques!
Nothing more exciting (and slowing) than an offshoot path!
Snack time in a woodland den. A good base to explore from on foot to.
Back on the bikes, although they are now all starting to need some coercing. Evie and Osh enjoy playing catch and crash for a while…..
… and then they give up – enough biking for one day! But a rather sweet walk back to the car.
What a lovely day all round.
