So much fun – Autumn Walk 2014

Every year since M arrived we’ve enjoyed an annual Autumn walk. This walk gives us the chance to enjoy the change in the seasons and the beautiful colours. The first year M seemed so tiny and small but it gave us a chance to share so many colours with him. Last year we noticed so much change in our little man it was great. This year was totally different, this year we had so much fun.

We took M to Moors Valley Park, our favourite location at the moment as there is so much to see and do and so many trees to experience all the colours of Autumn with. We decided to take part in the Gruffalo trail that took us on a mile walk around the woodland area of the park. M didn’t manage to walk the whole way round, but he did a pretty good job.

We’ve recently seen huge growth in M’s development and his speech and imagination are improving every single day. I love his ability to play and explore by himself, he had no fear marching off into the trees on his own to fetch some food for the Gruffalo. It’s quite fun thinking about how much he will have grown by next year’s Autumn walk.


I also think our little man is learning to love photography as much as me. He has been around cameras since the day he was born and loves to hold my camera and has recently started pressing the shutter button down to take his own pictures. I hope to be able to get him his own camera soon, I might have to search some charity shops for one.

Something I’m really excited about experiencing with M in a few years is a weekend away at Bushcraft. Bushcraft teaches you how to live off the land and build dens, create tools and catch fish. I am hoping M is still into the great outdoors by then. I’m pretty sure he will be.

I really love how we are raising a little man who loves the outdoors as much as us. It makes for really fun day trips and will hopefully inspire him to ensure he grows up wanting to protect and love the world we live in. Far too many children don’t experience the outdoors anymore, which is why will make sure our little guy always enjoys it.

    He has grown so much! I love his outfit, so snug in his hoodie and bodywarmer! x

    A fantastic tradition and great to see how they grow and change so much. We love exploring here too and it’s such an important thing to develop in children. A lovely post #CountryKids

    I too would love to go to a Bushcraft or similar when the girls are a bit older. I wanted to go on an adult one for my hen-night but my other hens weren’t so keen, it being November! It’s lovely spending time outdoors with kids though isn’t it? One of the reasons I love #CountryKids is the fact it shows there are still quite a few outdoor parents out there, even if as you say, not quite enough. Great pictures – he’s such a little cutey!

    It’s great that M enjoys getting outside and having fun. It’s great to see how they develop over the years and I’m sure M will flourish at activities such as this as he gets older. Beautiful photos. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
