Off with the layers!

Spring has definitely sprung down here in Cornwall.  Temperatures are up and the sunshiny days are more frequent now.  Hopefully, it will stay this way.

Last week, little T, Doc and I went out for a little adventure.  Our aim was to search for rabbit holes.  As always little T and I started the walk all layered-up with a jumper underneath our rain coats and our first-stop was searching for a puddle.

A whole lot of mud welcomed us through the gate.  Peppa Pig and her family would love this!

Oooh look at that blue sky and white fluffy clouds, aren’t they lovely?

And look at our little dog, no longer a pup at six-months old.  Still over-excitable though and a bit loony, but that’s our Doc! 🙂

And then the little T says I’m feeling warm mummy!  Off with the first layer …

After checking that there were no cows or she sheeps around, Doc was off his leash too.

All through out our walk, Little T was busy looking for sticks her dog could play with or chew on.

And then he fell in a rabbit hole!  Too bad, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it, was too busy laughing.  When he recovered himself, he started sniffing the rabbit hole which led little T to panic  “Don’t eat the rabbits Doc!”  

See that pink house down in our village?  That’s little T’s dream house.  When we were looking for one, she kept insisting that we buy it.  We actually had to explain that a house had to be up for sale before you can actually buy it.  Thank goodness it wasn’t.  Would you like to live in a pink house?

Look at that, even the sea was calm.

Then Little T announced she was feeling warm again, so off with another layer!  There she goes a-striding-away.

And singing, but I couldn’t make out the song she was singing.

Look at me mummy, I’m a dragon!

And then I noticed the grey-clouds hovering and decided it was time to go home.

The good news is that, we are scheduled to have good weather again this week.  Whoopie-bloody-doo-dah.  Have a lovely weekend everyone and Happy International Women’s Day! 🙂  Also, happy birthday to N, my cousin who reads my blog 🙂

    Doc is getting so big! And I love that your weather is warming up and how well you took pictures while carrying all of T’s discarded clothing!

    • It actually wasn’t easy, especially since I had to put him back on his leash because of the cows, but somehow I managed! 😉

    Yay – we are peeling off Winter’s layers! I got down to my T-shirt gardening yesterday and haven’t had a coat on for several days now, even at night putting the birds to bed. Yay indeed!

    • Double yay! I’ve only been wearing a cardi to walk my daughter to play school. I normally wear a coat! Let’s hope this lasts 🙂

    Beautiful photos Dean – you’ve captured that childhood delight in running in open beautiful places. Can’t believe how big Doc has grown! My daughter would love to live in a pink house too.

    • Thank you! Yes, Doc’s growing so fast – both of them actually 🙂

    Hooray for sunshine and living in such a picturesque place by the coast! It’s so sweet that Doc and T are growing up together and exploring the world around them together whilst having fun. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
