Getting wet and muddy in the park

Have not had much time to get out and about to the park with the twins lately, so today I decided to get them out despite the rain,. So we went to the park in the rain to get wet and muddy. The twins were quite happy to go and so we donned jackets and reins and went.

Minky hopped from item to item and played on each thing for about ten seconds and Dinky amused herself by pottering around and not really playing on much at all.

He now knows what to do with the ladybug and was really pleased with himself that he can get it to move and keep it moving.

They enjoyed climbing on and off the mushrooms.

He could not quite master the net but did try

They had fun spinning this round and round and then running round it

The two of them happily went up the steps on the slide

while Minky was happy to come down the slide, Dinky climbed back down the steps. The slide. like everything else was wet and he did come down a bit fast but enjoyed it and went up again and again.

Though she did go and play on the smaller slide

and had a lot of fun crawling through the tunnel

They played together for a while on the car, and Minky was not too impressed that the steering wheel was "stuck" and would not move.

Inspecting the back

Buy now the two of them were soggy wet and rather muddy and so we headed for home.

But on the way home there were some puddles that needed jumped

and splashed in with their hands

There is a lot of building work going on over near the park as they are knocking down various buildings are building a new primary school. Dinky was not keen on the noise so she put her hands over her ears but was enjoying watching the diggers despite the noise. Minky was right up at the fence.

Then of course the hole had to be jumped in and climbed out of.

Some video clips stuck together.

So we went home, got stripped and got some clean clothes on, but my daughter is like me, a bit of rain and mud does them no harm and they had lots of fun running about.

  1. Elaine I'm sure they have gone through a growth spurt, they suddenly look quite grown up! I'm feeling rather guilty you have had rain when we have had the most amazing week of sun in Cornwall, however full marks for ignoring the rain and going on out. The twins clearly had a lovely time and at least you weren't worrying about keeping sun cream on!

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    1. they have gone from babies into proper toddlers now, they have grown and matured and their speech is coming on as well.

  2. They are so cute and adorable! We have been getting muddy too and sometimes I dread doing the washing =P



Nice to see you stopping by. Thank you for your comment and I hope you stop by again.
