Even if its just a dog walk at our nearest park, we walk and explore, play and jump …

A sand pit for autumn fun

A sand pit for autumn fun

Who says sandpits are just for the summer? We received a really awesome sandpit from Wickey an online retailer that specialises in climbing frames, swing sets, slides and sand pits of course.
