#CountryKids Out in the sun

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall
We have been making the most of the sunny weather to have lots of outdoor fun this week. First of all we had a couple of hours after school enjoying a picnic tea and fun in Staveley Park. I actually remembered the children's swim things so my daughter could have fun in the river:

The water was pretty cold but she still seemed to be enjoying herself! Her brother was more sensible and stayed on dry land to play hide and seek:

We were having such a lovely time we ended up spending another 20 minutes in the playground instead of going home:

A lovely evening! Today we had an almost completely outside day in Grasmere and Fell Foot. The children came to cheer me on in the Grasmere Gallop and afterwards had fun in the buttercup meadow:

Then we went onto Fell Foot to a party and my children both added to their 50 things list. My son got brave enough to climb a tree:

Both children also had their first go in a kayak. My son went out with me but my daughter went solo:

All in all a perfect Country Kids day!

    That does look like a perfect Country Kids day. My kids have had their surf boards in the river at Coombe Mill this week, the joys of the summer heat. I'm loving your photo of the buttercup meadow, it stretches for miles into that lovely blue sky. Thank you for sharing your day on Country Kids.
