End of the summer daze

Enjoying my energy levels before I hit the third trimester
So we made a little list of things we wanted to do over the summer. I had been to the Amelia Trust farm before with Mr A but we had not been as a family and thought the first week all the kids went back to school would be a perfect time to explore (pros of not having a child in school). So we headed out to this lovely community run farm in the Vale of Glamorgan

There is a lovely array of farm animals as well as a great little nature inspired play park with an old tractor that Mr A would happily spend all day sitting on. They had some organic veggies on sale and we picked up a lovely little pumpkin after which we sat down at the little farm cafe for a coffee and homemade shortbread as well as picking up some fresh eggs for home.

Amelia Trust farm

Our favourite part of the farm is the forest walk which eventually leads onto a wild pond filled with beautiful water-lillys. We spent a lot of time at the pond, just sitting and watching the dragonflies and chilling out. It was one of those wonderful warm days right at the end of summer and we couldn't of asked for more, it really was a blissful, simple and frugal day out as the farm is free of charge and you could spend hours roaming around all the little paths and walks.

It's always lovely having an outdoor adventure as a family and exploring somewhere new. The Amelia Trust farm has now become a firm favourite for all of us and I am sure we will be back very soon.
