Our annual big family camping trip

Once a year we meet up with the rest of the Strickland clan (Luke's brothers and sisters) for an annual camping trip together. It's a great opportunity for all of the cousins to play together, and for all the adults to catch up and spend quality time with each other.

This year we went to Anglesey, we had lots of sunny weather, and it was particularly sheltered from the wind in the haven of a nearby beach. Although staying on the campsite and nearby walkable beaches for the whole weekend, we packed a lot of activities in, including kayaking, swimming in the (very cold) sea - Eden was having the time of her life despite it being cold (!!), kiddy parachute games, a bbq on the beach, rockpooling and crab catching, Uno Extreme, roasting marshmallows, ice lollies before bed and for breakfast, water play for the children and digging in the sand. It was lots of fun, and even more satisfying being able to watch little people having a great time playing together.
