No fools on April 1st for us ... ...

Well a couple of treats from our April Fools day from Winston and Milana...

Winston started off in the horse arena by building in the sand.  He carefully shaped little walls round a space and announced it was a boat into which he got and went for a ride. 

Next he jumped up on a plastic base nearby, that is used for poles for low horse jumps and announce a bridge.  He then dragged this base half the length of the horse arena and back and proudly looked at the track he'd made and let us all now know there was a road.

The girls all loved this.  Willow immediately set off down the road while Milana and Ava and Dakota checked out the bridge and the boat. 

After a while, Winston used more bases for the jumps and built a little house round himself.  He was so please with what he'd done and his first visitor was Ava, who kindly 'knocked' at Winston's door.  She loved the visit and he loved that she came and they both just fit in the little house.

Soon after, Ava started to line up the horse jump bases and she and Milana played happily together.  Milana was chatting to Ava and also herself and singing along too... ...Ava very happy with what they were making together.

I turned to see at one point and saw Milana, carefully decorating the edges with great care and attention... ...she looked up at me and smiled as if to say, 'Look how beautiful this is'.  As I took it all in, I noticed that she had carefully dismantled a sheeps poo into little balls and was using each little ball to decorate with.  Her innocent delight and pleasure alongside the sheep poo used to beautify was very funny... ...especially as Willow and Dakota took it all in at the same time as me and they found it so funny to see her using sheeps poo.

Milana of course took no offence, she just loved that what she was doing made Dakota and Willow laugh out loud as well!
