The sun did not shine, it was to wet to play...

...But there was no keeping us in on this grotty wet day. After dropping Mrs M at work a few days back we headed out on a mini adventure desperate to make the most of the afternoon. We had been to Attingham Park a week or so ago but seeing as we don't have to pay now we thought we'd venture that way. On arrival the weather seemed pretty bleak but it wasn't raining and Opeie had a huge smile on his face as always, so our adventure began...


But as expected the rain soon started thrashing it down and we excitedly ran searching for somewhere to take cover. We made our way to the dark tunnels built into a hill. Opeie armed only with the Darth Vader torch on my keys lead the way, the flash on my phone came in handy too.


The rain slowed down a little but neither of us were going to let a bit of water ruin our fun so we continued our mission to the playground. Opeie stopped us ever few minutes to show me mushrooms he had spotted.


The playground as you can imagine was soaking but our backpacks made excellent bottom protectors stopping us from getting wet...


Not the slide though, Opeie made it quite clear that he was not prepared to put up with a soggy bum walking back to the car so the slide was a definite NO NO! (Arms crossed to make his point clear)...


Opeie found us a little hut with a roof to stop and have a snack, it didn't have any sides and we were still getting wet but it was cute that he wanted to sit there for cover.


Soon after, the rain started thrashing it down again and we both had wet feet so we began our hike back to the car but not without Opeie stopping at and standing on every "Lorax stump" that he spotted...


And then it was shoes and socks off for the journey home which Opeie found very entertaining


When you see a pair of shoes on a radiator you know that fun has been had.
