It’s been a while since I have participated in #CountryKids, I couldn’t resist this weekend. We went for a lovely walk in the woods yesterday and I managed to get some lovely photos. This is what October is all about in my opinion. Coats on, snuggly hats on and wellies of course. Fresh, crisp air and mountains of brown, crispy leaves to jump in.
We had such a great time, just two hours and that was plenty of fun. The walk started out from Brampton Mill, then over to the lake at Hitchingbrooke park. We walked around the lake, then over a bridge to get to the river walk, lined with browning trees. It was a beautiful site, the perfect location for a autumnal photoshoot. The kiddies spent 30 minutes in the park and then we walked back the way we came, along with a few games of leaf pile jumping.
Jumping in the leaves
You cannot go out for a walk in autumn, when its dry in any case, and not jump in a big pile of leaves. My favourite thing to do and watch. The children look so happy jumping around in them too, that look of total satisfaction. Feeling free. That’s what it signifies to me. Even Daddy enjoyed it too.
There was no planning in our outdoor fun activity, we literally go with the weather and knew the exact spot for a walk in the woods. We got home and had yummy hot chocolate and squirty cream. Yummy!
I am linking up with Coombe Mill and Country Kids. Head on over to see their latest post for hundreds of family fun ideas on getting outdoor with the children this October.
