Our Mini Easter Getaway

Me and my parents decided to leave our normal lives behind for a few hours and go on an adventure today. There's nothing quite like being outside for a few hours, and certainly nothing quite like the adventure we went on today.

I think we'd forgotten that some parts of the UK were hit hard with the snow earlier on in the week, so when we stopped off somewhere to go on our rambling adventure, we were really surprised to be faced with snow banks and huge snow mountains which we had to climb over. Here are some photos:

Here we are, the starting point. We drove for about 30 minutes from my house to get here, and it's beautiful. Anyone know where it is?

It wasn't long before we started seeing patches of snow. This one looks like bubbles! :) Or a frozen cloud. :)

This photo was completely mum and dad's idea. Hilarious people. :)

Here we are - adventurers! We look like we're in a completely different country here!

Someone had made some giant, deep footprints. Mum stood in it to show just how deep the snow was were our adventure took place!

And here I am, at the summit. In the background you can see the point where I took the starting photo!

This is mum and dad being silly and decorating the snowbanks.

Today, we had a lot of fun. It was a world away from what we normally do and despite only being outside for about 2 hours it felt like we had been on a weekend break away somewhere abroad. It was incredibly snowy and muddy all at the same time too, which is nothing like the area near home. There were some parts of our pathway that were so bad that we had to improvise so that we didn't a) fall through frozen ponds or b) slip off random cliffs. It was exhilarating to be outside and exercising both body and mind in our tricky but exciting adventure. I can't wait to go again! :)

Hoorah for adventures! :)
