30 Days Wild – Day 1 – Its SUMMER…here comes the rain again!

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_01Woo Hoo! Its June and that means 30 DAYS WILD. Munashe has been asking if its Monday yet for the past few days…wonderful that WILD things can be greeted with nearly as much excitement as Christmas!

So here we are….and its SUMMER – so visions of being out in the glorious hot sun with a melting ice cream, walking bare foot in the lush green grass spotting butterflies were definitely on my radar. But Oh No this is England…the wind, the rain and the cold!

So the challenge today – could we actually enjoy ourselves outdoors in the wind and rain or should we just give up on 30 DAYS WILD now or just stay inside and read a book about butterflies and wait for the summer to arrive??!

Lets get out there and see….


Off they go...

We headed down to Edgbaston Reservoir in the heart of Birmingham. It was raining….so lets see more water.DSC01096

It’s great to run and breath in nature and to be outside for a prolonged period of time. So that’s what we did we ran, we jumped, we walked we played. It was good!

Zori’s eyes would light up at the sight of yet another muddy puddle. Jumping in puddles definitely gave her the most joy, but really she could have happily spent another couple of hours watching the birds, the water, making marks in the ground with her wellies.

Munashe managed to find the gluppiest, muddiest, sloppiest puddle, which was the muddy version of quick sand. Which resulted in loosing a welly! Munashe’s highlight was the little family of Coot’s, telling is they were so cute and trying to work out which one was the toddler.

Which one's the toddler?

So did we manage to enjoy ourselves in the RAIN and the WIND?? Oh YEAH

Our family selfy!
