Coombe Hill Monument and a New Year's stroll

It was a lovely day today so we drove to a spot near where Dan goes riding that he had wanted to check out - Coombe Hill Monument in Buckinghamshire. 
The best bit for the boys was definitely the muddy trek to get there! Joplin stepped in one puddle and got a shock when it nearly went over his wellies! I steered Eden away just in time!
There was a lovely view from the monument for miles around. There was a good wind up there too so took the opportunity to try out Joplin's ladybird kite he received from my cousin for Christmas. 

 There were some good tree climbing opportunities on the way back to the car which was a great end to a lovely walk.
