Muddy Walk #CountryKids

This year I made it one of my New Year’s Resolutions to join in with Country Kids more so here is my first attempt of the year.
I had made a promise to Aly and Mia that on Saturday we would make the effort to do out for a walk in the woods which is only 5 mins from us. With the girls dressed in their new wellies and coats we headed off in search of mud.


Now the woods are wet at the best of times but this was something else, I had a feeling that I would have to carry Mia for most of it but she was more than happy to walk and Aly of course wanted to walk through the muddiest parts…luckily she didn’t fall over.


We didn’t spot much wildlife apart from this little fellow.


Aly was very interested in all the green tubes and wanted to know what they were and why they were in the woods. And she seemed really interested in learning about the new trees and how the others had fallen.

We managed to stay out in the woods for about an hour and considering the girls walked through thick mud I think they done well and when it came to bedtime they went straight to sleep.

    I bet they had a splendid time. Aly might be interested to know that the green tubes stop deer from eating the bark of the young trees. I joined a working group in an area like that – maybe the same one – last Autumn and found that cutting down brambles a great stress buster.

      Ah she loved that little fact. It’s amazing how big those woods are (Views Wood) everytime we seem to find new interesting parts

    Looks like a marvellous time, getting muddy and having fun at this time of year is a must; clothes can be washed, boots cleaned, but the memories stay.

    It’s lovely to spend time outdoors exploring isn’t it. Mud is such great fun!! (and if it makes the kids sleep longer – bonus!)

    The benefit of outdoor time like this is coming home tired and refreshed. Sounds like Aly as a real interest in nature. I can see you enjoying those woods through the seasons together. Thank you for joining me on Country Kids, loving your new year resolution and hoping it’s one that sticks!

      At Aly’s school they do something called Welly Wednesday so they walk around the school fields and learn and she loves it.

    Great capturing that squirrel – they run too fast for me. Looks like a lot of muddy walks this week. Your girls are very cute.

    We have been having some very muddy experiences too! I have found having an all in one for him very useful. The fresh air is the best for them and hope to see more of your adventures with Country Kids.

    Looks like lots of people had lovely muddy walks this week and your girls are so cute walking together. I’ve linked up for the first time with Country Kids and will definitely try harder to join in and share our outdoors experiences. We were looking for a Gruffalo but didn’t even see a squirrel!
