Around the Friendship Tree

There was so much happening at our last meet-up. A new family joined us as did a very beautiful, two week old baby. We met in Queens Park and found a lovely spot from which to base ourselves. To one side there was a huge tree that the children dubbed ‘ The Friendship Tree’

After filling up on them, any extra were throw into the potion. Another cluster of trees proved great for climbing. A sling was slung from a high branch making a fantastic, hammock-esque swing.

One of the children found a tiny frog while others blew bubbles to the background sound of animated adult conversation, helping the friendships between parents deepen.

After a while some of the younger children grew tired so settled down to a story. Gradually more and more children joined them making a very peaceful end to a quietly productive day.
