As hubby works 6 days a week and doesn’t know very far in advance when his day off will be, we usually do things as a family on a spur of the moment. Today was the day for this week so I was hoping the weather would be nice so we could go to the local park for a picnic and a fun afternoon. It was sunny when we woke up but then black clouds were looming – we thought we would risk it anyway!
First things first we had our picnic – I just popped to the supermarket beforehand and got a few items to nibble on (sausage rolls, mini sausages, chicken bites, cheesy puffs and jam & custard Jammie dodgers, yum!). It was still a bit cloudy so we managed to find some shade under a tree. N was in the pushchair and just enjoyed having a good look around whilst we all ate.
After our picnic J & Daddy had a kick around with the football that we took along, before we headed to the play area with a sandpit and water area. I’m not totally sure who had more fun though!
We then headed over to the park where J had his first go on a roundabout, though I don’t think he was very keen as he didn’t stay on it for very long. He was more interested in the huge slide and we could barely drag him away!
In the park there is a water fountain which has been there for years, but it was out of action for a while. It has been restored a few years ago and this is the first time we have been to it. J loved dipping his feet in the water for a cool down.
Whilst the boys were playing I did a bit of flower spotting.
N slept pretty much the whole time so I think the fresh air got to him straight away! (And the sun popped out again in the end!).
