Hang on – its still my birthday!

Megan wanted to hang out with her family on her birthday – and as she chose to celebrate by doing GoApe, this was meant quite literally!!

Our destination for this activity was Grizedale – a Forestry England site located in the heart of the Lake District and not far from our new home. We had allowed plenty of time to park, but were lucky to get a spot in the main car park straight away so had time to enjoy the play area before registering.

Balance practice

It wasn’t long before we were heading over to the high ropes course to be fitted with harnesses, having our safety talk and a low level trial run. This went without a hitch so we were released into the trees…

Hang on tight!
Hello down there!

You know the saying – what goes up must come down. In true GoApe style this means only one thing – a zip wire!! After some initial nerves Megan was soon zipping her way down from the branches and soaring over our heads.

Mind your head!

William decided he was less of a monkey and more of a mountain biker so he and Daddy went off to inspect the superb bikes available to hire at the bike hub whilst Megan and I continued to hang out together and complete the Treetop Adventure+ with its challenging course (ask Megan about the twisted bridge that I catapulted her off) and the 130m long zip wire at the end.

After all that excitement, we met up with the boys for a well deserved ice cream before heading back to the barn.

Thanks for sharing your birthday treat with us Megan – I think I know what I want to do for my birthday now!!!!

    You and Mum had a great time “hanging out” together – what fun!! The picture of such a beautiful, elegant young lady on the balance beam is lovely. It has been a great privilege and pleasure to share your first ten years with you. We always enjoy your company and look forward to the next time we’re together. Love GA and GD xx
