Muddy Adventures and simple pleasures

outdoor fun

I actually had another post planned for our weekly country kids inspired post but as we had so much fun today on our little muddy (and at times rainy) adventure I wanted to share it with you now. There is nothing better than a long walk with the little man, this one took us over 3 hours and I didn't pick him up once - a new record for us. We started out in Bute Park - a lovely large green space in the centre of Cardiff and walked through to Blackweir and across to Pontcanna park, on cycle tracks, muddy parks, through woodland and alongside the River Taff it provided us with lots of different things to explore.

We saw a woodpecker hopping from tree to tree, which was very exciting. We spent a lot of time watching the water flow over the weir, as well as picking up random sticks along the way. Mr A also came across a worm, which he was very concerned for and had was in deep conversation with for about 15 mins (see image below)

lovely moment

It was a great way to spend a sunday and packed with waterproofs and umbrellas it really didn't matter it rained half the time, we had a lot of simple and natural family fun.

  4. What lovely outdoor fun, Mr A is such a little adventurer and being able to walk for such a time is testament to the stamina he has built up on his outdoor adventures with you! I do love the photo of him having a chat with the worm - adorable. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

  8. Hi, I am so glad I have found your blog. We live in Cardiff and enjoy outdoor adventures as much as we can. Bute Park is a great place and we go biking along the Taff Trail there and enjoy the lovely coffee shops along the way. I have just signed up for following and look forward to future posts.

  12. Such a great reminder that it doesn't really matter if it is raining, does it? It's just good to get out of the house and into the fresh x.
