Welcome to the last Country Kids of 2017. Thank you for all the lovely link ups this year and for all the time and effort spent on seeing what each other have been up to and leaving comments, it has all helped to make this a great community of like minded bloggers appreciating the benefits of outdoor family time. I hope you’ll join me for one last link up this year before enjoying some well earned family time over the festive period. Keep those cameras at hand and come back to join me in the New Year to share all the ways you found to keep Christmas from being sofa based!
