Run/ Walk In The Park : Country Kids With Coombe Mill…

On Sunday me and 3 of our children decided to go on the hunt for conkers. Dressed in something comfortable to run in,  it was the perfect combination to get some exercise done too.Mum behind as usual!!

Its easy to get the youngest to our running when they have new trainers…

No Conkers here, so run to the next spot…

Found one unopened chestnut shell so we could be close?


That was about it…

We did not find any…

Oh well..

We had to make a quick plan B…

And picked some leaves to make an Autumn picture instead…

    Your photo is so clever. What a shame you didn't find any. Loads just by my son's school. But at least you had a nice walk #weekendbloghop

    Aww what ana ctive family you have! Love those shoes. The colors are just lovely and appealing. We found some conkers on our last walk but they are too small so we will head out again to find some bigger ones =) #countrykids

    Shame about the conkers. I was teaching Year 1 dance on Thursday and their dance had to be inspired by being a conker- trying to make their body into a pose with as many spikes and points as possible and then moving smoothyl like the conker between! It was funny!x

    What a shame you couldn't find any conkers, they seem to be sparse this year, looks like you all had a great time anyway having a run. I love the snazzy new trainers, they're so brightly coloured! Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.
