A Winter Walk

Yesterday we, and another family from our home schooling group, went on a wintery walk in the woods to collect fir cones and twigs for making decorations ...............well that was the idea anyway. About 5 minutes into the walk Hannah discovered a stream which obviously she immediately waded into............................



......................naturally if you find a freezing cold muddy stream the very best thing to do is share it with a friend!!!

At least Oscar had wellies on, Hannah managed to get drenched..........

.........and ended up sitting in it!



I think this bunch of fern was supposed to cheer me up after discovering her wet and muddy from the waist down..............and who could resist such charm?? Not me :-)


So after an hour and a half, another stream (or 20 - we've had A LOT of rain) and much tramping through undergrowth we went back to the car with a bunch of fern, lots of wet green moss and no fir cones lol!!



And here is Hannah back at the car - the cold had set in by then so this is her 'I'm frozen' face!!
