The Easter Holidays

After last week’s gorgeous warm sunshine this week felt like a bit of a letdown with the weather. Or at least it did to me;however the children are far less demanding of the British weather and carry on regardless. With school holidays upon us mine have been only too keen to come out and meet all the guests staying and show them all their favourite corners of the farm! This and an eventful week with new animals being born and needing tending has kept my children and those of our guests enjoying the great out doors.

Hats galore!

Check out all the lovely “Little Helpers Hats” This new addition is proving popular this season. I am also posting one to Ali for this post  as my chosen Country Kids post for March. There were some really inspiring outdoor activities and plenty of children clearly having fun; I spent a happy hour revisiting them all, which made it very hard to choose! In the end it was Ali’s perseverance to get the children out for the day with no car which did it for me.

Please keep them coming, new linky every Saturday, I love to share what we have all been upto outside, whatever the weather!

An amazing week.

The sun shone from dawn to dusk, how could anyone resisit having fun outdoors? Our children have played out till late with friends at the farm and we have seized every opportunity for a trip to Polzeath beach. The waves were perfect for body boarding so we took full advantage. With rock pools, rocks to climb, acres of golden sand, good parking and facilities it is a great family beach. Despite the gorgeous weather the beach remained largely deserted. I love the feel of the sand and sea salt against my body and the joy of the children laughing and playing. Weeks like this remind me just how beautiful Cornwall is and how lucky I am.

I love this video clip of Jed in the rock pool for the sheer excitement busting from his whole demeanour

An impromptu BBQ was just a delightful way to round off a hard day at the beach. My chance to pass the cooking baton to Nick, for the children to catch up with friends and the grown-ups chill out with Pimm’s and marvel on the wonders of the British weather!

Just for the record, Guy has not cut himself in this photo, just an overload on the tomato ketchup!
