I said don't do that !

By Nigel_NZ
One happy child at the Longleat zoo at Warminster. Obviously much more exciting to splash in the red puddle than look at the animals, but I think Mum wasn't to happy, now why would that be? just boys being boysWink
I can vaguely remember doing that sort of thing, much to my parents annoyance. So nothing changes over the generations.

Cheers for the votes and comments on other posts.

Lol - Something I never dared do as a child! (I wouldn't have sat down for a week!).

We went on a woodland walk with our grandson once, when he was about 3 years old. There was one area through a very boggy, wet area, which had a warning to keep to the wooden walkway. Unfortunately, at that time he couldn't read, and although we told him to walk on the path he decided to leap off.....................he sank to his upper thighs before we managed to catch and haul him out!!! (the smell was unbelieveable). He wasn't impressed with having to wear various items of female clothing until we got back to the car!!! Grin Grin

I love the way you've captured all that muddy water it looks quite solid! (I wonder if he regretted it).

Fabulous! Looks like he had on good clothes too. And where's he to sit in the car. A sure bet Mom wasn't pleased. Super capture.
