Of course when they come to pick me up from work I hear about what they have been up to in the day but normally they are so tired that I get the version that goes something like 'Mummy we dropped you at work and then went to a park and back home and watched TV for a while'. OK, sounds like they had a half hour or so out in the fresh air. Oh no, how wrong was I, most of the day they were out exploring, apparently finding deer tracks, fox holes and woodpeckers. Visiting a lake, feeding ducks, playing with random dogs and having an impromptu pic-nic - all sorts. How do I know this? Because I found some pictures on the camera and that prompted me to ask dh more about their day out.
I have to say I was very pleased that dh had washed all their clothes before I came home and even tried to clean all the mud off JJ's trainers and the girls boots.
I'm linking this post up with Fiona's Country Kids. She runs a linky every Saturday and encourages everyone to link up any posts they have about their kids getting outside and having some fun.
