Well we have had a great day jumping in muddy puddles!
All I can say is … Peppa Pig has a lot to answer for! Ayla is completely drawn to mud but I’m not sure Peppa is entirely to blame. Me, Josh and the Cars are usually covered in the stuff 🙂
We continued the afternoon introducing ourselves to the ‘Cob house’ chickens
We had the whole place to ourselves, which was nice, it did turn quite chilly in the wind today… apparently Snow has been forecast! So we retreated into the Cafe and had hot drinks and iced buns.
We then went to visit Saracen…
Missed this boy… he is such a handsome fella.
He enjoyed munching some apples and carrots (cupboard love!) and I enjoyed having a snuggle with him and stroking that soft muzzle. Nothing quite like a soft warm muzzle of a horse to cheer you up 🙂 He really looks amazing, and it is so special to me that Ayla has got to know him. As my ‘first love’ and childhood pony he was a huge part of my growing up, making it so special is that he has now been a part of my daughters life too.
Yesterday we spent quite some time blowing bubbles & catching bubbles (in Mums sitting room) Ayla was so impressed with them it really was so much fun seeing her little face light up as she repeated over and over “Bubbblles…Bubballls …Bubbbawls!!”
🙂 There is something rather special about seeing the world through the eyes of a toddler.
Ayla has made me experience the world around me all over again through her eyes, she really helps you appreciate beauty in the smallest of things.
Like Leaves and Bubbles and Stones and Sticks,
To Keys and Birds and Buttons and Clicks,
The Rain and Wind and Sun and Snow
It’s So Exciting Watching You Grow!
