It's been a long time overdue since the wee man spent a day out together just us. We have had lots of time with family over the past few months which have been great and kept us otherwise busy. With a day actually forecast for being sunny I decided to take advantage and go a little further afield from home. We headed to Chatelherault Country Park which in fact is only a 30 minute drive away. We pretty much had the park to ourselves all day! I got to try out our new waterproof trousers which work a treat to keep you warm and dry and have the added bonus for making you go extra fast down the slide. It turns out playing with sand is not just a summer activity and it's possibly if not actually a bit easier to use when it's a bit damp and not blowing everywhere. It occupied the wee man for ages as he thought of different ways to play with it and even transported it around the park. We warmed ourselves up on some soup before I headed out for a walk with the wee man to get a sleep. I was at a slight disadvantage with the push chair and was warned that the paths probably would not be suitable but well I boldly went where I guess no push chair had gone before! The great thing of spending a day out with the wee man does mean I get to enjoy the fresh air and peace myself. It was muddy and rather bumpy and there were stairs but it ran peacefully beside the River Avon through ancient woodland and the sun showed it's lovely face. The wee man got to enjoy the tail end of the walk and played with sticks and "squelch, squerched" through the mud. A tiring and beautiful day with just us being country kids.
