Westonbirt Arboretum

This weekend, my sister came to stay, and on Sunday afternoon we went for a little adventure to Westonbirt Arboretum. The Arboretum is particularly beautiful during Autumn, and we followed the seasonal trail to try and enjoy as much of the Autumn beauty as possible. Ruby loves being outdoors, and it was wonderful to see her enjoyment of this place that I love.

One of the first things we saw were these enormous tree trunks that had been cut down and lined up. My sister saw them as an invitation to do some handstands, so that's exactly what she did.

It can be very advantageous for Ruby, having a Dad who is as tall as some of the trees. It makes for an even greater sensory experience!
 I think the red leaves are my favourite.
When we found another horizontal tree trunk, we sat on it to eat our lunch, then jumped off it, naturally.
Our daughter is not yet walking independently, so she is rather ill-equipped in the shoe department. But who needs shoes when walking amongst Autumn leaves? There's far more fun to be had with bare feet.
The end.
