Bright sunny Yellow farm-S first one.

 

I am very excited to write my new blog after long time.This  one is very special ,reason behind the same is after long time I ‘m back to my green visit therapy.You must be thinking how come therapy?? So answer is simple,it gives immense pleasure to watch this green colour in abundance and receiving great vibes from them which help to to relax mentally and explore the different boundaries physically .I forgot to mention that this ‘Breathe the Nature ‘ visit was also special because of one more reason and that is ,my thirteen month old son’s first exploration with team green crafting.

We went to beautiful Farm with colour yellow spread all over like sunny bed sheet reminds me of visit to Sunflower farm long time back.It was Marigold flowers all over,beautiful sight to watch.As we entered into farm drizzling started and bright sunny rays from other direction,tried hard to find RAINBOW…..better luck next time !!

K wanted to take some flower back home ,so that she can prepare eco friendly colours for Holi and add to our excitement Samarth had great time watching bright flower,cow,birds….kept on pointing and sharing his joy and excitement.

It was wonderful time enjoying nature at best,looking forward to continue journey and enjoy the same.Hope you all love this therapy visit.

Toys plays important role in kids development from early years of childhood.Nowadays numbers of brands available in market to make choices for kids ,but the later part is once kids play with toy for long time, gets bored with the same and ,needs change or replacement of same,so at that time we realize ‘Is it wise to buy expensive toy every time or can we have option?Yes Friends here is your superb option to get replacement of toy ,when kids wants change,Answer is TOY LIBRARY.

Well recently I was contacted by founder of toy library Learning Ladders in Bangalore  Ms Anupma,she gave me details about the toy library how it works which is excellent concept according to me,providing best of branded toy carefully categorized according to age suitability ,making your work easier to chose the apt toy for your kid,and once you feel kid is getting bore ,you can go ahead and order fresh one.I know for parents hygiene is important concern while lending these toys,best part is toys are sanitized and cleaned properly ,so no need to be worry about hygiene factor too.

For me concept is eco-friendly ,very relatable as recycling with maintaining best of hygiene and can make our little contribution towards ‘Breathe the Nature’ which is close to my heart .I myself is looking forward to join the library for my little one.

Ooty Visit-Khwaish turned 5-Part 1

 

This year Khwaish has turned five and her birthday been special one with the presence of her grandmother and two aunts with her.So to make occasion more special we planned trip to Ooty to celebrate my little one’s b’day amidst of Nature blessed place.

We made booking in the homestay Marlborough House for our stay in Ooty which was indeed pleasant part of whole trip,big colorful garden in the front of homestay magnifies its beauty with variety of flowers and wooden benches to ease yourself.The whole family fell in love with the place,I would like to specially mentioned the obliging and courteous lady attendant of the homestay made our stay a memorable one ,with her quick services and smile on her face.

Our journey started in the early hours of morning,connecting Bangalore via Mysore highway taking us through Bandipur National Park.We were lucky to witness group of deer,peacock ,langur in the dense forest area.

DSCN9885DSCN9895DSCN9902DSCN9878DSCN9880

 

 

Once we crossed dense forest of Bandipur next Madhumalai Tiger Reserve was on the way.First came across the view where old lady was catching fish,little strange how in the open she got guts to do fishing in the tiger reserve,must say brave one.

DSCN9905

 

Next interesting story on the way,while crossing Madhumalai forest an elephant blocked the way for 20-25 min ,to and fro traffic was blocked ,in fact we were forced to take car on reverse mode,since these are wild elephant( we had one incident long back while my Waynard trip with elephant trying to come near car and attack while we were clicking its baby pics),so don’t want to take any risk and offend this big creature.With finally elephant moved to Jungle and we were all set free for our continuing journey.

DSCN9906DSCN9911DSCN9912DSCN9914

 

By late afternoon we reached Ooty touching various destination in between ,relaxed ourselves with tea and my hubby after continues driving of 6-7 hours after long night shift went to sleep,in the meantime rest of the family planned to explore the homestay and beauty of nature.

So we had great time clicking beautiful,well maintained garden and lovely family time.End of the day one and little chirping bird saying bye for the day.
