the brochures available. Yeah.
And we look at what all the family are going to be interested in.
And then it comes down to who's
To me, it's just a load of rocks
Dad's taught us loads of facts
One Roman Emperor managed to be able to eat 20 kilos of meat a day.
The Romans also invented sewerage systems for toilets. Fascinating!
Mum always talks to people.
on the plane, round the pool.
She just can't walk past 'em
We just have to stand around
Neither of us are keen about putting our heads under water.
I don't like getting my hair wet,
Dad's excuse of not putting
he gets this urge to breathe.
I just end up snorting lungfuls
I am happier standing around
We can show them that they can
Mum, Dad, I've heard all about your endless tours of Roman ruins.
Conor and Evie ruled this empire.
Do you agree? Hm, yeah, go on then.
Gimme A Break parent promise.
You've got it, are you happy? That was brilliant. I'm in command.
You two stay out here and be quiet.
Is that what you're saying?

or out of water? Everything.
How will mum and dad feel about these things? I wouldn't know.
I have come up with three amazing
Let's start with break number one.
Well first, we went to this picnic
I took a massive bite of the scone.
There was loads of
I thought it was butter but it tasted really plain.
Butter? Really? It must be somewhere in Yorkshire.
After this picnic thing, we found, like, a hobby horse.
I think it will be riding horses or taking photos of sharks.
Let's see if they do any better at break number two.
We went to this pond and they had loads of floats in it with objects.
Open it, I want to see what it is. It looks a bit like chocolate.
The Kendal Mint cake, I think that was just like about the seaside,
If the paddle means we might go sailing, I'd really love to do it.
I've always wanted to sail a boat.
It was all water-based, so I think it might be a watersports holiday.
What does it say? In the distance
I can't believe the sheep even got in a golf buggy!
When the sheep finally got tired, we found some clues on him.
A fish? Why's the arrow here?
Big sheep. Spear fishing on a farm. I haven't heard of that before.
Maybe it's having a look at fish.
And doing archery. A stereo?
It looked like he was conducting
I don't know what that music
Shall we do this thing? Yeah!
what do you think it might be?
Because of the tea and the scones.
what did you think it was? Butter?
No, you see it was actually Devon clotted cream. Devon?
Cos if you pick this break,
a camping caper on Dartmoor.
You won't be ambling around
and driving a horse and cart,
you'll also have the chance
Real? Yeah, real. Live? Live.
What about Mum and Dad, they don't like putting their head underwater.
It'll be funny to see them fall off.
break number two into the mix.
What do you think it might be?
Where is Kendal? I don't know.
Kendal is a place. BOTH: Yay!
Get in! It's in the Lake District.
If you pick break number two,
you'll head out on an adrenalin fuelled holiday to the Lakes.
Shall we have a look? BOTH: Yeah.
Sheep, Wales! People have been yelling at the telly going,
It is a Welsh outdoor activity
Together with trying archery, you'll also be running up hills
What about the sheep? Yeah!
You've seen my three options. Do you think you can make a decision?
How can you be sure you're both
We're sure. Yeah, we're sure.
It looked awesome. Well good.
You are heading to the Lakes, consider it booked. BOTH: Yes!
Don't forget, when you're there I will pop back up on my laptop
and give you the chance to win
If you answer my questions right, it's all yours to enjoy, brilliant.
Been great meeting you. BOTH: Yay!
Will mum and dad throw themselves
And, who will win the final treat?
Conor and Evie are busy packing
There is a line. Your half, my half.
Are you packing neatly? Yeah.
We've got to. Conor's quite tidy, he'll know what he wants in there
The next day, it's finally time to reveal the break to Mum and Dad.
You are going to the Lake District for an adrenalin adventure.
Stunned. I am absolutely stunned.
I think Mum's a bit apprehensive, usually she plans the holiday.
The Bishop family are off, and mum has a three-hour journey ahead
to get to grips with the kids
until they finally arrive at their accommodation in Mosser.
The house where we're staying
Not what I'd imagined at all.
I love it. It's so high up.
It's time to see what Evie and Conor have packed for their parents.
Yay! Guess who packed for who.
It was a bit of a jack-in-the-box.
And the socks! Does that mean
Favourite shorts, very good,
They were impressed by what we packed for them. Absolutely crushed.
Thought you'd look good in it.
and the little rabbit ears.
when he finds out what rules
Right, dad, the kids are bored rotten of all things Roman,
there will be no Roman ruins tours,
and no mention of anything Roman.
Don't think you've got off lightly,
of you chatting to everyone,
Evie and Conor have had enough of you avoiding water sports.
They're tired of your excuses
Breaking the rules will mean consequences, I must warn you.
I'll be popping up later to tell you all about the final treat.
they're gonna break the rules,
because mum can't stop talking and Dad's always going on about Romans.
Not so sure about getting my head in the water, that's gonna be trickier.
So that will be interesting.
It's a new day, and the family are
Mum and Dad might be facing
We've come down with the water
jumped and skidded and fallen. Yes, scrambled. All the way down.
Evie just tried everything, she was crazy in that water.
So far, everyone's completed
Well, there's one final tricky jump.
To see Conor jump off that ledge,
You can do it! Come on. Sorry.
I couldn't bring myself to do it.
It was almost impossible for them.
I'm really proud that mum and dad
I'm proud of everyone today. Yay!
The family are about to explore

Half of what you see here today will have been taken out by candle light
We have never ever, any of us, been in a helicopter before,
so I'm really looking forward to it.
I don't know much about these things
when a helicopter's going downwards.
Lifting off, oh, what a sensation.
We were going really fast, but it seemed like we weren't moving.
that the mine went through.
loads of mountains, loads of roads.
Dad's fear kind of stopped him from jumping into the gorge,
but he's definitely improved, cos he went up in the helicopter.
I've been forced to confront it
and I think I've come through
It's the first time any of us
and I really want to do it again,
It's a new day, and a new experience
of a wildlife park in Bassenthwaite.
We've got Muffin. Hi, Muffin.
These are two South American tapirs.
Watch how he uses his snuffly snout.
If you would like to join me.

It's like he's drifting off.
Wild animals don't do that!

Their cheeky ways reminded us

The fur was all soft and warm.

Up there? All the way down.
I think I owe it to the kids
All right, kids. Come on, Dad!
My heart was going a bit when I was harnessed up ready to step off.
But I must admit I enjoyed it.

Conor and Evie have some gifts
There you go. That's for you.
We know when you get underwater you can't breathe. That might help.
You know how you don't like
How long have you wanted one? I have wanted one of these for ages.
Mum and Dad looked really silly
Now let's go kayaking then.
Now they've mastered the paddling, time to have some competitive fun.
Me and Conor stood up and sang Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
# ..And ears and mouth and nose
# Head, shoulders, knees and toes
and they were really rubbish.
# Shoulders, knees and toes
I think me and Evie were better
We played a really fun game,

I brought us closer together
We win! There's another surprise.
You need to answer at least two out of three questions correctly
However, if you muck them up,
OK. Are you ready? BOTH: Yeah.
Did Dad prefer A - ghyll scrambling,
Given the choice between the zip wire and the ghyll scrambling,
I think I preferred the zip wire.
Absolutely right. Well done.
We got it right. You're gonna lose.
You have to get the next one right if you're going to win the treat.

Did she say A - "Brilliant!"
I think A, because 'glorious' she doesn't normally say that much.
Glorious is like angels and stuff.
Well, here's what your Mum said.
If I had to describe my swimming hat in one word, it would be...
We went in an amphibious vehicle up hills and through lakes.
from the puddles. It was so cool.

It's been brilliant. Come on, Dad!
