To the woods :D It's supposed to tip down later this afternoon just when I pick up my 4yr old mindee, but we are going on a picnic to the woods (there are some shelters there) and I don't care what the weather does, even if we just sit in the shelter watching the rain.
We will all have our wellies and raincoats, so no excuses ;)

Hope you all had a lovely time. Last week it had not stopped raining all day and the kids were suffering with cabin fever and were snapping at each other and me so I said "thats it, lets get our coats on, our umbrella's up, we are going for a walk"....it rained during our walk but the kids had fun with their animal umbrellas and it got them outside and the snapping, bickering and general grumbyness stopped and peace was restored :laughing: :laughing:

Well, we had a bit of trouble getting there as they had closed the road and we ended up down country lanes trying to get back to the main road, but it was OK.
Had a nice picnic, then the heavens opened with thunderstorms, black skies and torrential rain, but the kids loved it and we carried on with our walk, soaked to the skin, the sun came out and it was quite warm.

The two older kids (8yr olds) went for a walk and got lost, but they had the sense to go back to the shop (Westonbirt Arboretum) to say they were lost and they rang me using the phone number on the wrist strip I put on each of them.

Finally got home by 6pm!

We walked to the woods yesterday, it took us 40 mins to get there and as soon as we arrived the heavens opened...we were SOAKED down to our underwear!!! Kids thought it was great fun and when we eventually got home we had hot chocolate....In July!!

I LOVE going to Westonbirt arboretum - have been a member for the past 10 years!! One of my favourite places to be.

I think it's great whatever the weather! I particularly love it in the autumn, and on a hot summer's day - lots of lovely shade! :) ............... and of course in the rain!!! :rolleyes:

We went strawberry picking in the rain on Thursday :D Funnily enough we were the only ones there (and the 2 other minders and their mindees we went with LOL) so it was great!! Some parents are so shocked when they drop their kids off and say "assuming u will be cancelling your trip to xxx because of the rain" and i turn round and say "uhh no, please go home and get their wellies" haha :D xx
