A Weekend In Pictures

We have 14 family members descend on us at the week-end for a camping visit.
 They were arriving in time for breakfast, I got 36 rashers of bacon all cooked up keeping warm in the oven ready for bacon butties,
 Tents had to go up
 Some were staying in the teepee
 The youngsters used the quad and trailer to transport stuff from the cars down the field
 Grown ups got there homes set up
 Youngsters had there own tent to get up
 with the help from grandad
 dinner was cooked over the fire
 whittling sticks for marshmallows

 You just have to
 toast marshmallows on a camp fire
 Tent city

one of the lads log splitting
and one of the girls
