Our July Adventure

Heather's challenge for the Adventurer's Club is becoming more difficult each month. Well it's either that or my thinking cap has slipped somewhat! This time I wanted to get in early, so I took advantage of the fact hubby has gone away for a few days.
It was Sunday, and we all got together to decide what adventure we would tackle that involved a travel case. I asked them all, "What do you think we should do? Should we have a day out?"

Seraphine replied, "No, it's too darn cold and besides you don't have a travel case big enough to take all of us."



"Yes that's true, you always take the tiny tots with you, but us bigger girls only get to go out on rare occasions." Nadia added.

"Okay then, what do you suggest we do?" I asked, hoping that someone in the room was going to come up with a great idea, or at the very least, something that would make this post interesting enough for people to read.


Then I heard a soft boyish voice say, "Why don't we bring all the cases out and see who fits in them?" I looked around to see Wren, dragging a small suitcase into the room.

I smiled and said, "I'm not too sure about that one Wren, it's pretty small." He opened it to look inside and quick as a flash, Hershey jumped in.


"Ah, this one's definitely my size." said Hershey, looking up at Wren. "I don't think so, it wouldn't close on your big fat head Hershey." he quickly replied .

So it was decided, we would bring all the "travelling cases" into the room and check them out. Mind you, in this home, travelling cases aren't always cases, sometimes they are make-up bags or lunch satchels, other times when it's one of my big girls, I use my laptop bag or whatever I can lay my hands on that they will fit in! In saying that, I do wrap them all very carefully or pop them in their sleeping bags.


After a lot of heaving and dragging,


a little pushing and shoving, with a few too many giggles thrown in here and there,


we finally had them all in one spot the floor. Of course, Cadbury and Lindt had to get in on the act too, there was simply no way in this world, those two were going to be left out!

It was no great outdoor adventure and there was no travelling involved, but all in all they shared lots of laughter and had fun with the travelling cases, while staying warm and snug indoors.

  1. Hi Sandi!
    I love that blue bag with a owl. And the small travel case is very cute :D It's been nice to see one of your boys too ;) All your dolls are lovely.

    Haha, so true it's easier to carry small dolls to go out. I have to do this challenge too and show how I carry my dolls XD
    Greetings ^^

    1. Hi Lily!
      The blue bag, is actually a child's lunch bag, the bottom unzips for a drink bottle to go in and the top part is for a sandwich and a piece of fruit, but it takes four pukifees with soft blankets very well. :)

      You will be pleased to know I now have THREE boys!

      Can't wait to see what you do for this challenge, I bet it will be something awesome.

  2. Hi Sandi! This is a great photostory - well done on a tricky theme! Wren is super cute - I'm glad you were finally able to get him! I'm in my new apartment - and it's lovely, but I am seriously missing my dog and cats - big time. I've actually been a bit homesick this weekend which has been a bummer, but I'm not due to head home until October - I'll just have to tough it out until then... But, you'll be glad to know I've finally published a new blog post - and it's showing off my new girl, no less :)

  4. I love that the colours in the luggage work so well with the colours in each of the dolls' outfits - very sweet-looking! :)
