|Looking for ducks in Hailey Park|
So it's been an up and down week with regards to the weather - The Bank holiday Monday and the Tuesday were amazing - lovely sunny, warm spring days but the rest of the week has rained every day, here in South Wales, but that's okay,we go out rain or shine and had some fun splashing in puddles this week. We had a great Bank holiday monday - you can read a post about it here, and on tuesday we explored Hailey park in Cardiff and Mr A had his first brush with stinging nettle, just a little on his ankle and he was very brave and held the dock leaf on his foot for a good 20 minutes or so, although I had to carry him about a mile back to the car, this incident did offer up a good learning curve, as he was very interested in dock leafs after that and picked some to take with to the car so he could keep applying them to his foot, which I am sure by this point was feeling fine.

When we were in the park he also came across a big log, which he carried around for ages.
We also spent a lot of time out in the garden this week, which looks like a bit of wild jungle at the moment, as Mr A has a bug kit he is keen to use and we came across some big fat granny grays and a very quick moving pair of worms.
The great thing is as soon as the sun breaks through the clouds we can zip outside for some bug adventures and as soon as it starts to spit rain we can go back inside for a spot of chocolate milk and watch the big slugs and snails from the window. Also some of our lettuce seeds are starting to sprout which is quite exciting.
