We kept our trip out a secret and only told the kids once we were on our way. Sara and Tom had arranged to meet us in Kendal and it was here that we deposited Benedict. They had lunch and then spent the afternoon at Games Workshop painting figures and watching other kids play role playing board games. Benedict met another few lads his own age and they had a great time chatting about various interests.
Whilst the three of them were occupied we took the opportunity to take Pip to the Beatrix Potter Museum in the lake district. The last time we were here Pip was only this big She enjoyed following the trail but I definitely think there was something magical about taking her when she was a lot smaller. Regardless we did actually manage a trip out of the house, other than visiting people's houses and that was certainly an achievement!
