At last spring has arrived! As has Spring Break and the boys have had a week off school. For the first time I have several different outings that I could link to Country Kids!
My favourite outdoor fun this week though was a trip to Middlesex Fells, a reservation not far from us. We are so lucky with the number of wonderful parks, woodlands and lakes that are within 10/15 minutes of our house!
We’d had a look online and there a few trails that you can do here, one of which is about a mile long, perfect for the boys. We arrived and parked (in what looked like someone’s driveway, but was sign posted as visitors car parking!) and got the wee girl into the rucksack. It was her first time in it, and she loved it! A much better view from up there!
Then there was the fateful tree that proved the undoing of our fearless 4yo. These photos capture the moments just before he fell off… We had a small moment of panic as he landed quite heavily on his shoulder and we did think he might have dislocated it, but thankfully it was just a nasty bump!
We were on the home straight at the point, so we headed back to the car!
It was a lovely afternoon wandering in the woods. As the 6yo said: ‘It’s really peaceful and beautiful, I like it here.’. I imagine we will be back often over the summer.
I’m linking up with Coombe Mill’s Country Kids again this week. Click on the badge to see what everyone else has been up to.
