Round and round at rounders!


I should have kept quiet about the good weather last week! Silly me…

However, we are British and as a friend of mine often says “There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.”

Week 2 (13th – 19th May) of the Mark Warner Holidays Active Families challenge.

Active playtime – active family playing lively games and perhaps learning a new skill.

We had a bit of a change to the #mwactive schedule this week, caught me a little of guard because I’d rallied the troops and asked some fabulous friends to join us at our local recreation ground for a picnic and some fun.  The 3 families made two great teams and we had an amazing time teaching the small people how to play Rounders! It was certainly lively!

Firstly, we did a warm up, critical when you are being so active. Our team physio instructed us on how to avoid Achilles and ham string strains with some stretching exercises (I hope I got that right!)

Then Mr.K explained how the game was played, what the wellies (bases) were for and how you ran to the next base before the ball got back to you.

Then we got stuck in…

Everybody runs!

Watch out for the tweets about our activities on twitter (@kailexness) using the tag #mwactive, you will also find the other bloggers taking part of the challenge through that tag.

So next week we ‘Get Sporty’ with some healthy competition.

I have to add my thanks to some great friends who got soaked through with the drizzly rain, Thanks Everyone!
