This weekend has been totally awesome, firstly because Hubbie and I had a date night on Saturday, we went to see Iron Man 3 and it was amazing. Secondly because I have dropped my Sunday shift at work, meaning that I get to spend more time with my family!
What better way to celebrate than spending my first free Sunday by visiting a woods local to my parents house and exploring?! Chester is a real outdoors kind of kid, he loves to be running around, burning off some energy and exploring. I can see that Millie will end up the same way, she loves to walk everywhere and is interested in pointing things out everywhere we go!
So after my parents kindly offered to look after Chester and Millie whilst we were at the cinema , well actually I should rephrase that ... my Dad kindly offered to look after Chester and Millie weeks ago but he neglected to tell my Mum opps!! I thought it would be a nice idea for all of us to go for the walk, my parents live an hour away from us, not a million miles away but long enough for them not to see the grandchildren as much as Chester and Millie would like! So perfect opportunity for some bonding time.
Chester and Millie were recently sent a lovely Poppy Cat mystery trail adventure pack so we took this with us. Included in the pack were some Poppy Cat mystery trail activity sheets, all of which can be downloaded/printed from visitwoods.org.uk for free. The activity sheets made the walk a real adventure for Chester especially. He had his detective hat on for most of the walk, he was looking all around him looking and feeling things that could potentially be ticked off of his list of finds!
This is our woodland adventure in pictures.....
