Country Kids 20th May 2017

 We needed the rain 

I’ve loved this spring for the dry weather,  it has been wonderful for our early season holiday makers, but Farmer Nick has been fretting about the dwindling water supply for the animals and slow grass growth. This was the week that saw all that change. Thankfully by Wednesday afternoon the sun returned. It had been wellies and puddles all the way till then but it didn’t stop the children having fun on the farm. Whatever your adventures, I hope you’ll pop by and share them on the link up below. 

Guidelines for Joining in: 

  • Post must be predominantly outdoors such as in the garden, the park, the woods or the beach with crafting, learning, exploring or playing.
    • Despite the title, both countryside and urban outdoor adventures are welcome.
    • Unheated covered areas like a barn or tent count as outdoors.
  •  Please comment on my host post and a minimum of 3 others of your choice.

Mudpie Fridays went exploring Paradise Park Animal Sanctuary whilst on holiday in Cornwall.

This 4 mile circular walk takes in the woods, beach and a pub. A great recommendation for families from Welsh Cakes and Wellies
