This year our diary has been packed to bursting. With school back in full swing we constantly seem to be on the go. Add to the mix my Beaver leader training and Marathon prep, resulting in very little free time at the moment.
When M was born we decided to set ourselves the annual tradition of taking an Autumn walk somewhere nice, among the bronze leaves and cool air. This year we decided to head to the same place we visited last year, but noticed it was going to be closer to Winter by the time we were able to take the time to go. So we hopped in the car one evening and had a little pre Autumn walk somewhere closer to home.
We pretty much had the trail to ourselves as we watched M race Beau back and forth. Beau enjoyed the freedom of exploring all the bushes along the trail, whilst M giggled as Clara spun him round in the air. It was full of the exact kind of moments I hope M recalls enjoying when he’s older. I would love him to continue the annual Autumn Walk with us even once he is an adult.
Our Autumn walk didn’t take us far and wasn’t for long, but it gave me some of the biggest smiles I’ve had in a while. I adore being outdoors and when it’s with my little family it’s even better.
