Pooh bear sticks 🐻

I don’t know about you but I just can’t get enough of adventures and spending time with my family!

Have you ever thought about when you was younger and went on adventure days out to forests and parks, everything seemed so much more bigger as you was a lot smaller, and walking far took many more steps than it does now that your a teenager or an adult..? The last time I went to Stanwick Lakes was years ago when everything seemed bigger to me, so I thought it would be a lovely idea to go with the family and have another adventure.

As my parents, K and I was walking around we came across a little bridge, perfect for a pooh stick race! If your not too sure what pooh sticks is… I found an explanation online 🙂 – Poohsticks is a sport first mentioned in The House at Pooh Corner, a Winnie-the-Pooh book by A. A. Milne. It is a simple sport which may be played on any bridge over running water; each player drops a stick on the upstream side of a bridge and the one whose stick first appears on the downstream side is the winner.

Of course my boyfriend and I are “big kids” we found 4 sticks for us both and my parents, stood on one side of the bridge, counted down from 3 and dropped our sticks. If I remember correctly my boyfriend won the pooh stick race, mine didn’t show up on the other side so it must of got stuck under the bridge… Second place was my dad and then third was my mum 🙂 Little memories like this are definitely the best!

Further on down our walk the boys spotted a wooden climbing course and obviously they both ran off and had to have ago! Credit to my mum for taking a sweet photo of myself taking a photo of K on the frame.

Two rope swings came up so we decided to do a Libby & K VS mum and dad photo 😀

As well as taking digital photos I also love to take film photos. I have quite a few film cameras but I mainly like to use my Olympus OM-2 as I prefer the quality of the final result.

Days out like this are my favourite! I love that I am able to capture every moment and keep them as a memory forever.
