Love these 3 beasties loads


We always try to do something for each of the kids as a family as well as anything (within reason) they want to do with their friends for their birthdays.

This year Alexander wanted to go actual paintballing - now that he's old enough to do it...  After conversations about how much it hurts when you get hit, I booked it all up and last weekend saw Lee, the boys and I, together with Matthew and Oliver venture to Upminster to Delta Force for some serious shooting.

Numerous bruises aside, a good battle was had - with our team winning of course!


Messing about on the river?

So a couple of weeks ago, Sue and I took a number of 3rd Prittlewell Beavers - including Cassandra to try out kayaking over at Thriftwood in Brentwood
Those that did come along had a brillian time..

Owain joined in too to help out
As did Alexander!
Great fun was definately had by all!


Going down deep...!

Well Alex is on another advenutre - he's decided he wants to try Scuba diving!
So a few weeks ago I booked him in for a trial session with Aquapigs and he LOVED it!

So as of Saturday, he'll be undertaking the SEAL course.. Gotta love his enthusiasm and open mindness to try new activities!

Mud, mud, glorious mud...

Further to taking part last year, the beasties went for it again at the weekend - Nuclear Rookies Mud Run, held at Kelvedon, Brentwood.
Only this year, after telling her friend all about it, Cassandra's bud Millie decided that she wanted to do it too!

So then it was the boy's turn....

 So much fun and so so proud of all of them.

Feeling old...

Alexander turned 12 on Wednesday and I have to say it's the first time that I've actually thought about the fact that not only are my beasties getting older, but I am too...

Alex has been finding it a little tough to concentrate on doing his ever growing amount of homework with Nicholas and Cassandra around him, so Lee and I bought him a laptop - to say he was pleased is an understatement!
 After school, we had the Nan's come over and a mini tea party ensued..

 With chocolate cake of course...

Happy happy birthday young man... love you to the moon and beyond.
