Uh oh, rain, but that didn't stop us...

After a half term week with both Mini (7) and Dollop (3.5) at home, we're back to our normal routine. Phew!

And because we're back in our normal routine, I have Dollop at home whilst Mini is at school. Yesterday was our first day together without Mini since before the half term holiday, so I'd decided we'd have a little adventure, in fact Dollop wanted to go on a bear hunt, so with a camera and a pocket of Barny Bear cake bars, off we went.

Oh, no, rain! In the 5 minutes between getting home and going back out, it had clouded up and the heavens opened. Oh well, wellies on, brollies up and off we go...

"Hang on mummy, I just spotted something pretty..." Oh, flowers! These caught Dollop's eye as we started down the road. The pink standing out amongst the dark wet path and the bright green of the plant.

"Mummy I found some pavement spots!"
For as long as I can remember Dollop has enjoyed finding the 'spots' on the road and jumping on them. She races down the street, stopping outside every house...standing on their spot!
Come on, let's carry on Dollop.

"Mummy, help it's too windy". A gust of wind catches Dollop's umbrella, but the wind drops as quickly as it had arrived, and we're safely walking on our way again.

SPLASH! The upside of rain is...puddles. We can't go over them, we can't go under them...of course, we had to go through them!

"Race you mummy"...At the rec already; a safe place to race and run, dotted with interesting blossom on trees, bare brambles where we'll pick blackberries later in the year, a jungle where the bear might hide...let's go and find him!

Strawberry or apple?
We found our bears but these ones weren't scary. Dollop picked the new strawberry flavour, I had the new apple flavour, and together we walked home as the sun came out, happy that we'd hunted down some very tasty bears! (And we preferred these fruity ones to the original Chocolate and Milk flavours).

We received two packets of the new apple and strawberry flavour Barny bears to try before writing this post.
