Evening sunshine #countrykids

We were lucky enough last weekend to house sit for some friends of ours who live a little bit out of the city into the country. It was a fun filled couple of days. They have a small army of baby chicks, chickens, guinea pigs and a seemingly absent cat (we think it was insulted by the dog and so took off for the weekend). The kids were in their element looking after the animals. I think they probably gave them a little bit too much care if you know what i mean 🙂

It was a beautiful evening and so we sat in the garden for our pizza supper while the dog drove himself mad staring at the guinea pigs!

The kids headed out onto the trampoline. We have a tramp in our garden but the sunshine never hits it the way it did out in the country. It was too gorgeous not to take some shots of and also really lovely to see my bigger kids just being kids and enjoying the outdoors.

Good for the soul.

    The house sitting sounds like a great way to bag yourselves a family holiday. Looks like the kids are loving their summer holiday play and I don’t blame you for capturing the moment as the evening sun shone through. Thank you for joining me for Country Kids.

    No ageism as far as trampolines are concerned (free for all in our garden). How lovely for the children to take care of the animals and enjoy dinner alfresco and have fun in the evening sun – idyllic. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
