Sunshine after the rain

24 Apr

We’ve had a lot of rain recently and today even had thunder and lightening followed by a hailstorm. I wish I could be the sort of mum who was happy to take the kids outdoors regardless of the weather but I’m not. In fact I think I might be allergic to rain. Fortunately by the time the two monsters woke from their nap, the grey skies had cleared and the sun was shining brightly.

We decided to put on wellies and head to the woods. The Limpet loved jumping in all the puddles and squelching through the mud.

We watched squirrels running up trees and spotted signs of spring.

Can you spot the ladybird on the leaf?

Our local woods also have a great adventure area. Most of which is aimed at bigger kids but we were able to enjoy some bits.

    So pleased to see you ventured out. What lovely woods you have close to home. It is always worth an hour out between the showers to blow away the cobwebs, if only to appreciate the warmth of home afterwards! Looks like your 2 really enjoyed themselves. thank you for sharing on Country Kids
