Down on the Farm

After an awful lot of cold, wet and mushy weather, we have just enjoyed a weekend of wall to wall blue sky and sunshine. It’s been chilly but beautiful. As the boys napped on Saturday morning, we planned an afternoon out to make the most of the beautiful weather.

Most of our Saturday afternoons of late have tended to follow the same formula. It’s a pretty good formula. A nice walk followed by a coffee, sticky buns and twin bottles in a cosy coffee house. We love it. And so long as they get their bottle on time, the boys love nothing more than nosey-ing at all the goings-on in a busy coffee shop.

This weekend we decided we’d try our hand at a proper, baby-day out. So we decided to head to a little family-run open farm. So at the ripe old age of 13 months, we have now acquainted the twins with some real-life farm-yard animals. There were lots of smiles and appreciative noises and I think they enjoyed their first trip to the farm!

In a few weeks time, their Granda C will be in the full swing of his annual stint as a midwife as his flock start lambing. So there will be plenty more opportunities to get up close with nature. I’m looking forward to it anyway!

Here’s a few snaps from our little farmyard trip.

An Autumn Stroll

There’s nothing quite like the glow of a dry and clear autumn day. The low sun lighting up the crisping leaves, highlighting the warm autumnal hues. For a few weeks, the palette of colours all around us has been breathtaking. Bright blue skies providing a perfect contrast to the leaves as they turn yellow, orange and red.
We had the most beautiful afternoon a few weekends ago, when we headed to Barnett Demesne for a dander. The boys aren’t quite ready to enjoy the crunch of leaves under their feet but they do love getting out and about and taking in new surroundings. Here’s a few snaps, courtesy of Mr C, of our day out.
