A Trip to the Park and the Baby Goats

One thing I'm missing from being at college and placement and both kids being in school is our visits to the park. When Z was in nursery, we'd head to the park at least 3 times a week when he finished or just after lunch. Miss C and I did the same when she was in nursery. Now, it's almost dinner time by the time I get home from college and it's too dark after dinner to head out. I really can't wait for the holidays and Summer to arrive.

A friend suggested we meet up last weekend at the local country park and the kids couldn't wait to go. Husband came along too; he is also feeling the strain of working long hours and not being out in the fresh air. It was a lovely day, the sun was shining but we wrapped up well as it was still a bit chilly.

Before heading on a walk around the nature trail, we went to visit the animals. Most of them were in the outdoor pens but inside, a very cute sight was waiting to greet us; baby goats!

Aren't they gorgeous?

We stood for a good 10 minutes watching them. They are pretty cheeky little babies! The black and white one kept trying to jump up on to its Mummy's back and the white one actually managed it. Mum was not impressed and quickly stood up to get the baby off. Then the babies started playing together, headbutting each other to be specific, and dancing around on their hind legs. We were in fits!

All of the play tired them out quickly so they cuddled up together for a little snooze. Awww! 

We headed off for our walk and came across a huge den. Miss C went inside for a little look.

It was so nice to be out in the fresh air, enjoying exploring the park and seeing the animals. Hopefully we can make it a more regular thing at the weekend again.
