Old Holly Farm
It's looked like rain all day but the sun managed to stay out while we were out side and that's all we needed.
We got there late in the day so I'm glad I didn't buy any animal feed this time. The calves were far from hungry when we went to see them. There was another family doing the same circuit as us and their kids were tying to feed the calves but only one was mildly interested. My lot decided to swerve the sleeping baby cows and play on the wooden play ground for a bit instead, although it's a bit high for Georgie who went shooting off the end of the slide and gave me a fright (he thought it was awesome).
I was glad to get into the soft play this time. Venturing out with all 4 boys on my own is ok, but still a little nerve wrecking at the moment. I've been carrying him in the sling which gives me free hands and keeps him happy & quiet, but after a while I need to sit down and take the weight off! So coffe (fruit shoots for the kids) and cake it was while they ran round like mental cases! Georgie made a friend! A little girl, a bit taller/older than him maybe, and they were running about together holding hands, Very sweet! He was heart broken when she left.
I made a bit of a boob with the Donkey Rides... Every time we've been to Old Holly it's been bad weather so the donkeys are inside and not giving rides. This time they were out! So I thought I would use them as my get-away bribe for when it came to leaving the soft play area. But I should have checked them times...! Donkey rides finish half an hour before Old Holly closes. And we missed it. My bad! I'll know better for next time!
