Daily ambles out to see the sheep included chats over the fence with the cows and collecting eggs from the hens for breakfast. We found bugs, a pond, sticks galore and oh, the excitement of cow pats! Such a lovely way to spend quality time as a family. 15-5-15 - Farm Cottage_boys poking cow pat 4BYou won’t find cow pat poking on any ”10 outdoor activities for the weekend’‘ list but there are plenty of other suggestions from JCB Kids as part of their Dig the Adventure campaign to encourage families to get outdoors.  Chalk drawing would certainly be in my top 5 (but then you know that from our back yard art posts). 17-5-15 - Farm Cottage chalk drawing 4B We received E’s green ‘Build It’ t-shirt and ‘Joey JCB’ hat for taking part in the JCB Kids Dig the Adventure challenge.  E loved wearing both and anyone with a toddler will know if it’s not love at first sight you’ll run out of steam trying to persuade them long before they consider wriggling into it!  The hat was nice and roomy for E’s mop of curls – he only removed it when the wind picked up and he tired of holding it on. 16-5-15 - Farm cottage_wearing Joey JCB hat 4B It was breezier than the sunshine suggested most of the weekend so E’s second JCB Kids T-shirt was only uncovered on our return home.  The ”Build It” slogan was as appropriate indoors as out as he occupied himself building lego creations while we unpacked and sorted out the washing. 20-5-15 - E in red stripey Tshirt 4B I rather liked the outtakes too – such a comedian our funny, sunny boy.

    […] birthday this year but here are a few more momentos from the one he chose – a quiet, secluded farm stay in Hereford.  He spent the first few hours in peaceful reflection gazing at the view of the Black Mountains […]

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!

#welovelego #unpluggedchildhood #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog November 2011 on an unbelievably sunny day, with an allotment flourishing with green manure plants and an enormous 7 month bump.  As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week!
