Living Arrows 15/52 (2022)

If you read last week’s post, you’ll know we were on holiday in Yorkshire last week. We got back on Friday ready for a busy weekend with Toby at a birthday party on Saturday and then the boys’ usual Street Monkeys yesterday.

Last week we were staying at Forest Holidays in Keldy. Our lodge was lovely, and the boys really enjoyed having their own hot tub, but if I’m honest the rest of the site was a bit underwhelming. Still we had a really good week away, with plenty in the surrounding area to keep us busy.

On Tuesday we spent a fun afternoon at Ryedale Folk Museum, then on Wednesday we headed to Dalby Forest for a walk in the woods. We really need to build up the boys’ stamina when it comes to walking. We did about 5km on a very easy path through the forest and they managed it fine but there was quite a lot of moaning!

Of course they still had plenty of energy for the playground at the end though! Street Monkeys has definitely helped with their confidence when it comes to climbing and jumping – Toby took no time climbing to the top of this giant pyramid…

And of course neither of the boys missed the chance to practice their jumping!

On Thursday we took a trip to Whitby – the weather was pretty miserable though so we didn’t do much exploring. We went onboard the replica of Captain Cook’s ship in the harbour, and then had some delicious fish & chips for lunch. By that point it was throwing it down so we decided just to call it a day and head back to the car.

All in all we had a lovely week away. We’ve got a few things planned for this week but we’ll mostly be chilling at home before the return to school after the Easter weekend.

Whether you’ve had a week off already or your Easter holidays are just starting I hope you’re having a lovely time.
