so last year the HPMcQ’s popped their camping cherries. many of you might say “that wasn’t camping!” but i don’t care, that was as good as it gets for me and we had a ball, actually we had a spectacularly marvellous time. you can read about this years adventures here. but would we do it again i hear you say?
an intro to a book we have read many many times, and am pretty confident we will read many many times more still. julia donaldson and axel scheffler created this master piece, you may recognise their names from the gruffalo stories too. however this is not a review of the book, oh no, this is for the live show that has been very cleverly adapted from the book by the rather clever and wonderful people from the award wining scamp theatre.
rooster decided that he wanted a party this year. a bit strange from him as he tends to shy away from them really. he had one when he was 3 but since then he has always chosen to do something with us rather than a party. you might remember the dressing up that occurred last year, you don’t remember? check it out here and here. thankfully this year didn’t included dressing up, we were devastated pleased.
