A little Adventure

A little Adventure

We spent the last day of the Easter Holidays enjoying the great outdoors right on our doorstep.

We are lucky enough to have a lovely two mile long lane into the bog right beside our house, so we decided to take advantage of it and headed for a family adventure in the lovely sunshine.

The boys were allowed "ride shotgun" once we got into the wilderness

We drove to the end of the lane and then walked along by the stream in search of a little waterfall we hear was nearby.

Of course there was a picnic (as all true adventurers need food). Plenty of sandwiches and a left over Easter egg for that extra treat!

Time for some food!

We didn’t find the waterfall but we did find lots of other treasures.

Why go around the muddy puddles when you can go through them… especially when wearing sandals?

It is a long way back to the car, especially when you are only four and a half.

It is always good to have a back up plan

We had a wonderful Easter break and hope you did too!
