One of the Hazelhutters had a birthday today and for two others it was their last full day with us, so we decided to squeeze a whole lot of fun into one day!
In the morning it was sunny but a bit windy, so we headed to the lake and first enjoyed some quiet activities. Then the wind dropped away and most of the children went for a dip. The water was lovely and warm.
The next treat the children had in store was hot dogs at lunch time and they went down very well - literally!
On returning to the Hazelhut, the children were keen to swim some more, despite the pool water being not quite as warm as the lake.... so we let them go ahead!
The next treat we had in store for our Hazelhutters was a karaoke party, which some of the kids just loved!
In the evening we celebrated our birthday boy - 11 years old today! We brought the pizza party forward and all the Hazelhutters enjoyed having an al fresco pizza dinner until nightfall....
...and then, of course, the cake!!!!
What a magical day!
