Mum is in 'decluttering' mode and Dad is busy preparing for the World Computer Chess Championships so he can't take us anywhere at the moment. Still that isn't a problem as there really is lots to do around home.
We all enjoyed going off for a bike ride. Well I say bike, but Ryder rode the scooter and Caleb took the skateboard.
We come up the front path full of all we saw....Bobby took us some of the local places he went past when he went on his attempted 'trip to Devon' last year.
We had a grand time and wonder what to do next....
So what do you suggest Caleb? I ask.
Let's play hide and seek, he suggests.
We all agree that is a good idea and Bobby chooses to be the one to seek, while we three boys hide.
20, 19, 18.....9, 8, 7, 6,.....2,1!
Coming ready or not! He shouts.
Caleb thinks he has found a good place behind the rhubarb tyre.
Unfortunately for him, his red shoes give him away and Bobby soon spots him.
You can come out now Caleb, Bobby tells him. Now I wonder who I will find next?
Ryder thinks he has found a good hiding place on the old picnic table....he clambers down to hide behind the folded up seat.
He'll never find me here....he thinks to himself. Little does he know that his head is exposed.
Bobby is sure someone would have hidden in the shrubbery, and wanders over to have a look.
What's that? He turns his head towards a sound. Hmmm, it is coming from the direction of the old picnic table. He walks towards it.
Aha! Bobby grins and thinks to himself. I can see someone's head!
I can see you! Ryder however stays as quiet as he can hoping Bobby can't really see him, after all he can't see Bobby!
Bobby climbs up. Ryder, I have found you! Ryder turns his head and sighs...Fair cop. So who is left? He asks.
Just Henry. Bobby tells him. I wonder where he has hidden?
I have hidden behind the tree, hoping that Bobby won't find me.
I peek out...
Uh Oh, I better hide....
Bobby looks over at the tree...Is that a hand I see? He asks himself.
Climbing over some of the fallen branches Bobby finds me.
You found me! I cheer! Well done Bobby.
We re-group on the lawn to decide what to do next.
