What do you do on hot sunny afternoons when you need somewhere to go to cool off? We often head to our happy place, the local wildfowl and wetlands trust, Slimbridge. Being members we often pop down for a few hours on weekend afternoons to have a wander around, feed the birds or splash in wellyboot land.
The pictures in this post were all taken on my phone as I hadn't intended writing about it but the Little ones had so much fun, I thought that I would so I apologise for the quality of the pictures. With the temperature rocking 27 degrees on this day we were all feeling far to hot and bothered to do very much but at the same time we were desperate to get out the house and the children had energy to burn.
I threw the sun suits, a towel, plenty of drinks and snacks in a bag and off we went, we headed straight to the water on this particular day as no one fancied walking around in the heat, it was busy but there is always room for more.
The Little Ones were changed in an instant and while Daddy and I found a shady spot to put a blanket they were off splashing around in the ankle deep water to their delight. I love wellyboot land, it is gated so the children can't escape, the water is only a couple of inches deep max so the children are relatively safe and no matter where you sit you can see them.
