Fun on the family walking trail

This last Sunday the sun (what, did I say sun) came out, it wasn't raining or freezing cold so we made the most of it and got out. We took the girls to a National Trust place near us that has a family trail with things to play on along the way. The girls thought it was brilliant. We haven't been out on a proper forest family walk for ages and it was great to see Little 2 out roaming free in the mud as last year she was always in the pushchair.

There was lots to do, walking the plank....

Leading the way with Daddy...

Playing in the Den......

Banging sticks on the musical logs....

Little 2 was fearless on the rope swing ( Daddy held onto her tight) and really loved it...


And lots of muddy puddles.... (I had too many lovely pictures of puddle jumping so have made them into another post- Puddle jumping)

Smiling happy children all the way around, loving the mud splashed face in this picture...

I couldn't believe how far they walked, they were brilliant. Back at the car we stripped off the muddy waterproofs/wellies and cracked open the flasks of coffee and hot chocolate we had brought and tucked into buttery hot cross buns courtesy of Nanny. We had a lovely afternoon and will definately be doing this again very soon.

    Perfect when they are old enough to walk and you can ditch the pushchair, I did find I missed it for dumping all the coats and jumpers in though! I can see a summer of fun ahead for you all together. A lovely Country Kids entry.

    Yes, I do miss somewhere for the coats and that oh so handy packet of wet wipes! but great to all be running around together. x
