Feeding the ducks, and making grass heads!
A few mummy cuddles later and she was back to her normal self and both girls were running around laughing and playing, but it wasn't to last. Layla having started her day with tears was very emotional and this resulted in what would normally be a minor disagreement being blown way out of proportion and me hearing "mmmmuuuuuummmmmmmmmmyyyyyyyyyyy!" way more than i would have liked, that's when i realised before i even stepped out of bed that if we were going to get through the day without lots of silly argument's between the girls we needed a plan. Luck was on my side and the weather didn't look to bad outside so i thought lets do something both girls enjoy and thus far this Easter we hadn't done, let go and feed the ducks.
So we did, we had breakfast got dressed and already with the promise of doing something fun if they got ready nicely we were having a much better day. Off went to the shops to get some bread and we were off to the duck pond. When we arrived luck was once as we were the only people there and there were ducks and birds at the pond we had never seen there before. We also got to see a swan in a nest looking after some eggs.The girls were very excited by this i think mainly because of its sheer size (this thing was huge) and the fact it was there first real life nest. We finished up our bread and we watched the ducks for a while before heading home for lunch.
After lunch Courtney said "what are we going to do this afternoon mummy?" So we decided to do something we have been waiting all week for a rainy day to do (it wasnt raining but we really wanted to try this out). We made our grass heads. The girls each drew themselves ready to stick on there cups.
