Kick leaves – a standard Autumn activity of course! – An Autumn Bucket List Update

Yesterday we started out half term holiday with a good couple of hours up in Heaton Park – the weather wasn’t bad.  It was surprisingly mild when we went out but by the time we’d been out for a while we could feel the cold!!  Although it was overcast it remained dry which gave us chance to have a good old run about, kick (and throw) some leaves and generally enjoy the fresh air!  The park was full of beautiful Autumnal colours – plenty of leaves on the floor but also plenty still on the trees.

It made for a lovely start to the holidays – hopefully the weather will be ok later in the week too so we can get out and about a bit more!  We need to make the most of the dry days!

    Kicking leaves is so much fun, I had a go on the walk to school the other week. Haven't been to Heaton Park for years but it's a good place for running about isn't it! X
