blog, I knew that I had to visit Westonbirt Arboretum at some point soon, especially to see all the beautiful trees in full autumn glory.
Rob had the day off on Tuesday, and looking at the weather forecast I knew that if we were going to go on some sort of outing, it would have to be then. I woke up with adventure in my veins, and on days like this if I don't get out and do something well, adventurous, then I go mad. On the off chance we rang up Rob's mum to see if she wanted to join us, and she did and especially because her sister was down to visit for a few days, and she was dieing to see Theo again! So we headed over there and then drove a short way to the Arboretum. It was pretty busy when we arrived, it being half term and all, but as we arrived later in the afternoon it soon quietened down. The afternoon sun shining through the trees cast the wood in such a beautiful light, it was so peaceful just to walk around and take it all in.
Theo's had a cold all this week, so I wanted him to get some fresh air, but he hadn't slept much, and slept late so when he woke up he was in a fairly upset mood, which continued for most of the way round. He did perk up after some snacks and a few games of peekaboo and kicking his football around though, which was nice to see!
It was such a lovely afternoon out, breathing in the fresh cold air, and getting rosy cheeks. I would love to visit more often, but it's a tad expensive to visit regularly, except for special days out! But I'm so glad we did come up and visit this time to catch all the trees.
oh and before I forget, I just wanted to ask you lovely people to give us a vote on top baby blogs (daily if possible!) to keep us up there if you would be so kind! Thanks to everyone who has voted so far!
Poor Theo, I hope he feel better soon. You look beautiful in these pictures, like a character out of Downton Abbey! xxxReplyDelete
What lovely red trees!ReplyDelete
Thought you would like them!Delete
I remember visiting Westonbirt with school. There's some trees in there somewhere, that you can punch really hard & it doesn't hurt because the bark is all soft & springy. Google suggests it's the Giant Redwood, but the name left my memory a long time ago, alongside a lot of other stuff I learned at school. I just remembered punching a tree.ReplyDelete
I love the colours in your photos, the red is astounding.
Hahah, that's a funny lesson to teach kids, try and punch some trees?! Shame we didn't try that one!Delete
Thanks, but I can't really take any credit, the trees did all the hard work!
Beautiful photos! The one of theo is funny, 4th down - he looks like he is thinking "oh mummy you are so silly with all this peekaboo"!ReplyDelete
Haha I know! The stuff we do to make the, laugh ey? It stopped him whingeing for all of about 2 minutes...Delete
