Country Kids 8th April 2017

Excitement on the farm is building

So we have had baby bunnies that are now 3 weeks old and opening their eyes. If you follow any of my social media channels I apologise for the cuteness overload in my photos recently with regular bunny updates. Between the bunny photos I have been sharing the new lambs and we are also waiting on baby goslings. In the photo above Farmer Nick is showing a group of children the nest full of eggs while the goose eats her breakfast. Have you seen any new born animals out in farm fields recently? They are  such a joy to watch. Whatever your adventures this week I hope you have can join me on the link up below.

Camp wilderness seems to have taken the blogging community by storm this week and I must say their organised forest days are perfect Country Kids fun, I particularly enjoyed this post from Kippers and Curtains

Sometimes days turn out better than you expected for no apparent reason. This was the case for Emma of Bubba Blue and Me in Stratford-Upon-Avon
