The school holidays haven't even kicked off yet - only two days to go, woohoo ! - but there are already lots of events going on to keep the kids busy. Today was Festipark, an afternoon of activities with an extreme sports theme, including a bag jump, BMX bag jump, climbing wall and skate park.
We had a look at all the big things but the Madhouse kids decided to take part in the tamer activities, starting off with stilts.
There was lots of teamwork going on with Juliette holding up Pierre then Pierre acting as a leaning post to keep his big sister upright while I took a photo !
I'm used to Sophie being taller than me but it will seem very strange when Juliette is towering over me too !
Next, Pierre decided he wanted to have a go at the human table-football game
I think this was as much fun to watch as it was to play !
Kick it !!
The weather was really weird all day. I wasn't sure whether to take coats or sun cream with us when we set out. It ended up coming out lovely with blazing sunshine so when we sat down to eat a Nutella pancake, we took off the jumpers and packed them away in the bag because we were too hot, then had to pull them all straight back out again five minutes later when the sun went behind a cloud !
After watching some people doing double dutch skipping with two ropes (which took me back to my youth !), Juliette and Pierre both decided to have a go on the parkour-inspired track.
This involved lots of jumping and climbing over obstacles. Nothing seemed to faze them !
The festival ended with a series of concerts and Sophie made me laugh because she went down to the concert venue with her friend well in advance to take selfies with the singers - she's turned into an expert celeb hunter after staking out Harry Styles for the last month and finally getting her selfie with him !
