Children, moos & bikes
On Monday we went to Kent for a couple of days. My sister has recently moved there from France. We had a bit of a family gathering and celebrated my parents' birthdays.
On Tuesday we headed back home to the West Country with an extra passenger in the car, my nephew. Miss P and Mast S are the same age (just 3 weeks apart) and share a love of nature and the outdoors.
During the week they have been exploring the countryside, cycling, waving to the steam train going by at the bottom of the field, creating a den (called HQ...) and many other activities. Today Miss P and Mast S went on a 5 km bike ride around country lanes in the Mendip Hills, Alan and I followed on foot.
First stop to say hello to the moos as Miss P calls them
Miss P and Mast S chatted to cows, they were most attentive!
Lovely views on the way
and some lovely houses
How much further?
Two happy children!
I am glad that they are both outdoor children, it certainly helps during the summer holidays. I don't like the idea of them staying indoors all day watching TV. We are lucky enough to live in the countryside, in my opinion it gives children far more freedom when it comes to playing outdoors. Miss P has learnt so much since living here.
Since the arrival of the summer holidays it's been all go! So many things going on and of quality time being spent with my family. Normal blogging service will resume in September! (I hardly spend any time on the computer at the moment hence the lack of visits to your blogs, I am sure many of you are finding the same at this time of the year)
I hope that your holidays are going well and that the children are not driving you up the wall yet... ;-)
