On Saturday 20th October 2012, we held a Stake Youth Outdoor Activity Day at the church farms. Lucy's school friend Georgia came too, and we picked up Ben Hirst from his Aunt and Uncle's (the Lilleys) on the way.
Loads of kids came, and we divided them into four groups, and they rotated round four activities - First Aid, Fire Building, making giant catapults using Pioneer Poles and knots skills, and Orienteering.
This was Lucy and Jack's group.

We finished off the afternoon with some hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.
I had bought a prize for the best participant in each of the four groups (a knot tying book, a flint lighter, a compass and a First Aid Kit), plus we had some certificates for people. We ended up hanging round at the end for a bit with the stragglers, and Lucy and Ben wangled the left-over certificates out of me... Ben's for him and Jared crashing their bikes, and Lucy for Yellow Welliness... (I'm not sure what those glasses are that she's wearing!)
It was a fun day, anyway!
