Happy Feet

Happy feet in a buggy
Hi,  it's Little Bird here, test driving my new buggy at my favourite park. Wheeeeee!  Which way shall we go first?
Walton Park Gardens Warrington

Perhaps to the play area. Hmmm, it looks a bit busy so we will have a walk among the trees instead as I'm not too keen on crowds and lots of older screaming children.
Fallen autumn leaf

Ah, peace here, crunchy leaves and look how sweet on the bench!

I want to run through that red carpet of leaves but it's off the track and I best stay with mummy.  I'm also very comfy and snug in my buggy.

There was a lovely party being held in here, lots of balloons and people dancing. What a grand building but there were some parts that looked very old and spooky.....

.....and like it was falling down! I wonder what happened here?
{Edit: December 2017. Now there is now a restoration project}

Choo, choo! Let's hop on and explore.......

Perhaps a stop to make pottery - my mummy might like that.

Nah, this is more like it. Driver stop!!!!
The Children's Zoo sign

We had a walk around the Children's Zoo. Bunny's, donkeys, ponies, weird, weird birds, a big pig and a peacock that followed you around. Go away!

I learnt some Makaton signs for the animals.

After another close brush with the peacock I became a bit grumpy and mummy insisted on a coffee break, well, juice for me. Daddy was happy as Manchester City beat United 6-1 so it was a good day all round. I was just a bit tired, hence my tantrum and had a snooze on the way home. Zzzzzzzzz

hey - and pleased to properly meet you! I have been getting you mixed up with the other homebird and since you both left comments one after the other on my current post I finally realised there are 2 of you!
So, this is my first visit to your lovely blog - and of course I was immediatly drawn to the vintage blocks on your sidebar...
Anyway - thanks for calling in and entering my first giveaway!

I'm glad you are enjoying your new buggy Little Bird. My little one has just worked out how she can get out of her new buggy - grrrr.
