A winter Feeding #countrykids

Winter is here! But that isn’t going to stop us from getting out and enjoying the facilities in the park. The sun was shining but it was bitterly cold so we wrapped up warm and headed off to the local park which has a lovely big lake and a small adventure play area. We made sure that we packed some bread to feed the ducks as this is a favourite outdoor activity for Oliver to do.

Oliver had fallen asleep in the buggy on the way there but i knew he would be happy for me to wake him as soon as he saw the ducks by the lake, he loves walking to the edge and throwing in his bread for the ducks to eat.

As we was feeding the ducks a swan came swimming over to get in on the action too, Oliver got a bit too close and the swan waddled up to him to grab the bread from his hands, lucky for Oliver, Mummy was close at hand to pick him up and shoo away the greedy swan lol

Joseph enjoyed feeding the ducks too, but he throws in a whole piece of bread at a time unike his little brother who picks the tiniest pieces of his slice to throw in.

After all of our bread was gone, we said goodbye to the ducks and went for a walk through the park.

As we followed the path we came across a wooden statue, which is of a local marathon runner, it was carved into a tree trunk by a chain saw artist

The boys had fun on a part of the trim trail which is spotted around the park, these are made from wood and are a brilliant way of keeping fit in the outdoors and also a lot of fun for the little ones. Joseph practiced his balancing on the poles

We finished off our trip with a visit to the play area where they have a zip wire, It was Oliver’s first go on it and he loved it!

He came off giggling away and shouting for more 🙂
