We have had some amazing spring like weather this week, blue skies and lots of sunshine. Needless to say, I have had the girls outside as much as possible. I have apparently torn my shoulder cuff and my right arm is in agony. I can use it if I keep it waist height, anything more than that and I’m yelping. Taking them outside has let them burn energy and made things easier on me – a lot less lifting, carrying and clearing up needed!
We went on a Pooh Bear “Expotition” down to our wee wood, to see how the bluebells were coming along. I got some nice spring time shots and used some on my post for the #OneWeek linky. We had such a lovely day though, that I wanted to share them with Country Kids too. I was very proud of our youngest girl, at 16 months she managed to walk the entire distance of just over half a mile.
The Bluebells are not in bloom just yet, but the floor was a carpet of green shoots, the buds were appearing on all the trees and the birds were acting – to use the words of Thumper from Bambi – Twitterpated!
The girls were in their element and our eldest kept shouting to her baby sister to “come on into the spooky forest” – I think she was actually slightly disappointed that the forest was not in the least bit spooky!
When they finally exhausted themselves, we made the trek back home, using a combination of left hip carrying and piggy backs. It was an early to bed night in our house, with the promise to go back when the green shoot carpet has turned into a fantastic lilac blue.
If you and your children love the outdoors as much as we do, then why not pop over to Country Kids and link up and share your fun with us all.
