The best bits of the picnic (the sausage rolls, watermelon, strawberries and chocolate cake) disappeared up the tree with the kids and they sat up their eating their tea. They looked just like three chicks sitting in their nest!
After they'd had enough to eat they explored the tree, climbed even higher and 'monkeyed' around for a while
They were going to roll down the hill, but the thistles were really prickly, so they decided to run down instead!
Then we walked home, which was considerably easier going down than it had been on the way there!
