We drove to a local farm shop and parked up. They have a great place with lots of animals to look at. It's free to visit and has a lovely walk up a track by a stream.
We started with a picnic on a bench....... a Reindeer decided to try and get some of our lunch!
After lunch we walked up the track and visited the other animals. We saw sheep, lambs, lamas and pigs!
A bit further up we found a big pond with Ducks, Ducklings, Geese and Goslings! They were sooooo cute!
The boys found a little bridge and Brendan decided to start a game of Pooh sticks. All the children ran around gathering sticks and braking bigger sticks up to share. They all named themselves after a character from the Pooh Bear stories and then had races, throwing their sticks in one side and running to the other to see who's came out first!
A bit further up the path we found a great shallow part of the stream with a stony bottom and a rope swing! The kids could not wait to get in! We decided to strip down to pants just in case anyone slipped. And it was a good job we did! They loved it! We did get very muddy as the bank started to get wet! It was sooooo worth it though to see each one of them enjoy this time. No TV or gadgets...... just pure, natural fun!
|This felt SOOOO good!!|
So that was our day of fun and nature! and all of this cost nothing!
