In the case of this morning we packed up a picnic, M's trike, Ray (a soft toy who doesn't like to be left out), a ball and headed to Allesley Park. We started off with a gentle stroll and some peddling practice for M who managed to move the trike forward under her own power for the first time today, something that drew many admiring remarks from both Dave and myself.

It really was pretty. Both Dave and I are going to need to brush up on our wild flower identification skills though.
M was more interested in the pond where we saw lots of tadpoles, two squabbling dragonflies and several frisky damselflies. No pics I'm afraid. I did try to capture some of these, but couldn't see them on the phone's screen due to excessive sunlight and hence was photographing blind!
Walk done we headed to the playground where M enjoyed the swings.
