With the temperature dropping to a chilly 2-3 degrees during the day, we decided that the best way to spend our Saturday afternoon was with a visit to the farm. We’re not fair weather country folk and getting out and about is so great for your health and your mood, so we wrapped up and off we went.

Toby loved tractors and farm animals at the moment so we knew he’d love it and he did! We’ve not been to the farm for a good number of months and it’s amazing how far Toby’s knowledge of animals has come.

The first creature we encountered was a peacock, which Toby decided to call a chicken! We taught him the correct name for it and he alternated between the two, but seemed really interested in it. Next up were some goats, which Toby was a little nervous about getting close to, but with his Daddy’s help he had a good look at them and gave them some straw.

We carried on our way and found a tractor, some swings and best of all some muddy puddles! Toby had a lovely time climbing and jumping, although the swing only lasted about 30 seconds; he just doesn’t like them these days.

Jumping in puddles is an essential part of childhood!

We saw chickens, horses, cows and donkeys before heading into a lovely soft play area to warm back up. Toby was an absolute star all day and seemed to enjoy himself so much, making it a really special family trip out.

It really doesn’t take much to go out even when it’s very cold, just a few extra layers and somewhere lovely to visit makes it so worth your while. I can’t actually zip my coat up over bump so whilst I look for a good zip in panel I am relying on lots of layers, scarves and hats. It didn’t stop me having a lovely time with my favourites on our visit to the farm, though!
