Had a lovely weekend with the family, Ayla particularly enjoyed visiting her Granny and Grandad with all their animals. We fed the ‘kune kune’ pigs ‘Keri and Twizzle’ some fresh carrots and juicy apples which they munched down very happily 🙂
Misty and Fenn were keen to get in on the act too!
I love watching Ayla interact with all the animals, she is showing much more of an interest but is very sweet in her approach saying ‘hello pony hello… doing?’ . She has learnt to touch them gently and is growing in confidence with them. I am so happy that she is growing up around animals and gaining a respect for them all.
I also met a mini tractor/mower that looked suspiciously like ET!
After church on Sunday we went for a late afternoon walk, and took my parents dog with us too. This walk involved lots of stopping, looking and picking whilst Ayla took time to explore the beauty of nature. It is such a blessing walking with my daughter as she opens my eyes to most things I would simply walk by or not even notice.
We did the ‘girly’ thing of putting flowers in our hair……
But when it comes to mud our daughter is an absolute fan of mud and puddles!
This is where it all came a bit unstuck (or should I say stuck)… and resulted in some very muddy socks!
It was Daddy to the rescue!
And I had a mummy-thinking-on-the-spot idea, to use the doggy poo bags to cover up the muddy foot! (At least untill we could change our socks back at the car)
Daddy’s shoulders made for a comfy journey back to fresh socks
With a change of socks (minus the poo bags!) we were good to go again and up for a blast in the park before home to bed 🙂
