A few days before Christmas and a visit from part of the extended family. What better than to don the proofs and head up to small water, with Evie Bean striding her way into the lead!
Evie has a good chat to Barb on the way up
Before getting back in the pack for a rest.
Sitting on the shores of small water with Rose enjoying a snack, whilst Jude runs to a patch of snow up high just to get a handful.
Evie then walks all the way down and sits in the odd bog!
After all that effort time to head back for some food!
This was a special walk day – a walk that I have done since I was toddler. And it was Evie’s biggest walk yet . We headed up to small water where I enjoyed a swim.
Taking in the beautiful grasses.
Evie then enjoyed walked all the way back down, thinking nothing of the tricky terrain.
Very independent with her walking!
Getting a little tired – but she made it!
A walk that I did many many times as a toddler and child, it was lovely to take Evie to small water just as she is starting to want to walk.
This time she was happy to stay in the pack for the way up, meaning we got up there with time to spare. Good job as there was an alternative motive as well.
Evie munched some food as both her mummy and her Omi had moments of madness, and on this wet and windy day, went for a dip in the Tarn.
Evie watched on, and then we went for an explore to the sheep houses!
Wellies that fit today made splashing in puddles much easier!! Great fun when the puddles were almost rivers!
Then Bean surprises up both by walking all the way down back the the car (with the odd 1-2-3 swing and occasional carry).
So after all that walking, jumping and splashing she should definitely be tired. I don’t think it made a jot of difference – bedtime came no earlier!
