SNOW!!! We built a giant snowman, made snow angels and had a snowball fight…
By the time we reached the horses, the snow was falling heavily and after the problems we had had at Devoke water and getting the car stuck, Bob was eager to get back.
Eventually we made it back safely, but it was definitely not the peaceful walk we were hoping for.
Like I said things don’t always go according the plan…
Today, the carefully prepared woolies bag got left behind so the kids ended up with spare socks for gloves (not for the first time) but they did the job.
Wherever you are in the country, check out your local areas “What’s on” page for activities in your area.
If in doubt or organised fun isn’t your thing, put on your boots, grab your waterproof and get outside! Go for a walk, jump in puddles and kick some leaves!
More walkers, cyclists and dogs passed and we made it to the end of the terrace.
That was the easy bit…
We stopped at the bottom of what had been described as “the steep start”. We watched more experienced walkers struggling on the steps, some of which had a 20 inch step up, and I started wondering what we had let ourselves in for.
Sometimes a day out doesn’t go as planned. We can prepare for the weather, or for accidents but we can’t prepare for the mood the kids are in.
It wasn’t long before 11825020_10152894745625213_4578495990612196389_nthe kids had kicked off their trainers and were jumping in the water in their socks.
