A trip to Tulleys Farm

This morning Alice and I met up with Theresa, Alyssa and Chloe (a little girl Theresa looks after) at Tulleys Farm, which is about 10 minutes from where we live. Alice isn't sleeping as much during the day now so I'm trying to think of places to go and things to do with her.
 Tulleys was fairly busy; a lot of Mum's with young children making the most of the dry weather. We found a table where we could leave the buggies and then took the children to play. Alice was happy sitting in the bark chips with Chloe (who is a couple of weeks older than her but about half her size ;) )while Alyssa played on the slides.
 Unfortunately, both Alice and Chloe were more intent on eating the bark chips than playing with them!
 After the girls had all had a turn on the little slides and the baby swing we sat down to give them a snack. By this stage the sun had come out and it was actually quite warm.
 Alyssa tried all the little snacks I'd taken for Alice and enjoyed them but Theresa said if she gave her the same snacks at home, chances are she wouldn't eat them. Why do children do that? I remember mine being exactly the same.
And this photo was a total fluke ;-)  I held the camera out in front of us and took a photo. Normally I cut heads off when I do that but this one turned out well and I acutally like it :-)

Have a good weekend.
