It was a super duper fun with Adventure Kids today. With all the kids and their parents in great form, we headed to the church for some warm ups….the kids ran around the maze having some fun then we did some frog jumps on the grass and everyone could do them no problem (well, maybe one or two of the adults found them a bit tough)! Then JuJu showed the kids how to crawl like a lizard and do a push up in between crawls, again the kids were brilliant at this and the parents weren’t too bad either. Once we were all warmed up it was time to head into the forest and the kids were delighted about this!
We headed into the forest where everyone ran around the forest for a little bit more of a warm up jumping over rocks & on the bmx tracks before hitting the trails. We ran up to the fire road, stopping along the way to pick some blueberries. A lot of purple mouths today and everyone LOVED the juicy blackberries.
When we got to the fire road, we picked 2 teams and had two sets of relays. The speed of some of the kids today was unbelievable ( wish I was young again 😉 !! ) they were so fast and very competitive. It was a super race and the kids loved the challenge.
After the relay races we headed off along the trails and the Wicklow Way. When we got to the barrier, we did some flexibility exercises seeing who could get over or under the barrier. The kids were very flexible with no problems jumping over or under, the parents were very good at this too and indeed, some of them flew over the barrier.
Up the hill we went and into the bike trails in the forest where we had a few games of cat and mouse with the parents as the mice first and the kids chased them until they were caught. That didn’t take long and the kids loved chasing and catching their parents. Then it was the parents turn to the chase the kids and they enjoyed catching the kids just as much. ( some kids took for ever to catch )!!
After all that fun it was time for more!! We headed to the bike trails for juju to teach us how to jump the ramps & land safely the kids sure done their magic here & had great fun..
They flew down the hill with no fear and the jumps at the end were amazing! The parents then did it too but seems lots of fear about the jumps but still had lots of fun!
They looked like they were really enjoying it too.
Time for a bit of balance work after this and we walked along the logs with the kids tipping the parents to test their balance..not so easy to stay upright when being pushed off!! After such a savage busy day with the kids it was little more trail running trying to catch or pass juju as top speed racing though the woods for the kids to pass or catch up! It was close!!!!
Soon after all this we were all super warm and a river dip was needed big time so off to the river for wet fun!!
They just ran right in, no hesitation, lots of splashing and dipping. Great fun had by all.
We loved it today and we hope you did too. See you next time for some more top fun with the Adventure Kids.
