I’ve lost count of how many people keep asking us if we are enjoying having lots of family time this Summer holidays. Now that M is at school it is easy to think that we look forward to the Summer holidays for a break and some family adventures. Except both C and I work full time, so half term and Summer holidays are just regular weeks to us. We manage to book the odd day off with him, but the rest of his time is spent between lovely grandparents that help us out.
But there is some fun family time we look forward to every Summer, when we head to Camp Bestival to dance and sing and spend time together. I am so thankful we started M camping and festival going at such a young age as he now takes everything in his stride, except for mud, don’t get me started on his hate for mud.
Apart from the mud, our festival family time was rather epic. There were a few moments where we had to find the positives to being wet, cold and hoping the wind didn’t take our tent. But my view on it was, we warmed up, we got dry (eventually) and the wind didn’t take our tent as our tent was rather awesome (review coming soon). I will be writing many posts about our time at Camp Bestival very soon, but for now this post is about us as a family at our 4th festival.
So here are our favourite family moments from Camp Bestival:
Clara – My favourite moment was getting right to the front of the Castle Stage to watch Mr Maker and Mr Tumble, both Kirsty and I took turns with M on our shoulders as we sung and danced.
Kirsty – I loved watching M make a sword in the Spinney Hollow. His little face was lovely to see as he was made a warrior of Camp Bestial. We were very proud parents.
M – I liked the silent disco in the Lego Friends party place. We danced in the rain.
The unexpected family moments will be the ones that stick with us for the longest time. If you’re looking to enjoy some family time at Camp Bestival next year, the Pre-Sale Early Bird tickets go on sale tomorrow.
We received our family camping ticket as part of our position as Official Camp Bestival Bloggers.
