After Emilyn, Hugo & I built their dens & camping areas in the woods You can catch up here..
Emilyn & Hugo had put together their fire with sticks.
We bought a 99p BBQ incase it was wet & therefor we wouldn't of been able to light their sticks..
Yes it was soaked no way could we of had a fire in the woods very easily... & without being dangerous.
The BBQ was a perfect solution.
Whilst the children had their dinner I made the woods look pretty with candles in jars & put a spare mattress out with their fleeces so they can wrap up in them.
When they came into the woods they both said "Wow I love it! This is the best day ever"!
We put marshmallows on skewers & into the fire. The children LOVED this.
I had some wafers too so we made shmors too!
It was just so relaxing having all four of us chilled out cooking marshmallows on a pretty saturday evening.
