easter den building

Easter Day we spent with my family.
A delicious Sunday roast dinner, where we ate roasted spring lamb, followed by the richest darkest chocolate mousse.
Suitably stuffed, we all de-camped to the nearby bluebell wood, where we set to working off the calories by building our own bivouac.
There is already the most amazing tipi den, which the boys and every other child use as their own.  But this year we decided to make our very own.
Every member of my family was seen running through the woods, gathering large branches, calling to each other with owl hoots or cuckoo calls.
I think this new den will be added to over the years... to make a grander alternative to the original bluebell den!
Maybe we have just invented a new Easter Day family tradition.
