Park Life

I have been very lapse and haven’t linked up with Country Kids for too many weeks now.  Mostly because I have been so disorganised that I have gone out minus my camera.  We also had huge amounts of torrential rain and gale force winds which have scuppered our plans on occasions.

However, I have now, hopefully got my organised head back on and this week the weather was really spring like, so we have spent lots of time outdoors.  The girls were desperate to get to the park, so we took some food for the ducks and off we went.

The ducks were a bit thin on the ground.  There is now a nature reserve quite near us and most of the park ducks have absconded to there, along with the winter swans.  There were a few “loyal” ducks though, lots of Greylag Geese and some moorhens.  So the girls got feeding, they were having a great time despite the fact we then got inundated with seagulls and pigeons.  Our youngest thought it was hilarious to throw food and watch the seagulls catch it before it hit the water!

After the birds were full, we headed to the play park and the two of them just went wild!  I thought I would never get them home and had to resort to ice cream bribery!

  1. Looks like your girls had a wonderful time and knew just where they wanted to go. The dry sunny days this week have been such a joy after so much rain. Lets hope it lasts. Lovely to have you back on country Kids.

  2. Love her ice cream face! We are big fans of feeding the ducks here too but we always seem to get mobbed by swans and I am terrified of them so we always end up running away!

  3. brrrr they were brave eating ice cream – would have been too cold for me and my mouth!! still they look like they really enjoyed themselves x
