The Ordinary Moments #1 Walking In the Woods

We have started making quite a habit of heading out in the car up to a little country park, with woods and valleys to explore, walk and well just be happy! Snipe Dales, near Hagwortingham in Lincolnshire is actually only a 15 minute drive from our house and I cant believe we didn't think about taking the monsters their sooner...

The reserve is one of the few remaining examples showing the Lincolnshire Wolds as they were, and just one of a few valley systems still surviving in Lincolnshire. There are  two halves one with mixed woodland in the Country Park and the other consists of wet valleys, grassland and scrub in the nature reserve. 

With lots of hills to run up and down...

Trees to explore, and climb of course!

And trees to swing from...

We found a couple of dens that apparently the Gruffalo had made, well according to Jenson anyway ;)

 And we even found this see saw...

And after all the exploring it was time to slow down and take a slow walk back to the car,

Its funny how a few weeks ago that a walk through Snipe Dales was something 'different' to do over the Easter holidays, to fill the time but has turned into a place to go to regularly. Where we can make special memories just being with each other in nothing more than an Ordinary Moment.
