‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

On Saturday it was such nice weather that we headed out to the park. I know they have remained open throughout the second lockdown but this is the first time we have visited. But the combination of the sun shining and a not so great week I decided to risk it. On the understanding that if it was too busy we would not go or if it got too busy while we were there then we would go.

Its a large park and there is plenty of space so we managed to keep ourselves to ourselves and not mingle on play equipment. The boys loved it. Charlie played on the climbing area and ropes. The last time we were on them his best friend fell off and broke her arm.

Harry loves the roundabouts. There is one which you can get in and spin round by looking at the sky. He was quite happy just laying in there going round and round. He was so happy. Then they both played on the other roundabout together. With Charlie pushing Harry, and then Harry trying to push Charlie. It was funny to watch. We didn’t stay too long as after lunch it started to get busy. But it was nice to get out and enjoy the last of the sun.

Next weekend we are putting the tree up which I am looking forward to. Although we have to buy one first…..Is your tree up yet? I think lots of people put them up this weekend just gone.

  1. They both look like they’re enjoying themselves – we haven’t been to the park for ages, but that’s mostly because I find it so boring! We just put our tree up yesterday – we have a fake one though because I’m allergic to real ones. Hope you had fun putting yours up 🙂

  2. We have been going to parks, as they’re always busy. Holly is missing them, so I think we will brave it at some point x

    Lovely photos and it’s lovely you are all able to get out. Fresh air is so important to both us as adults as well as children.

  4. We haven’t really been to the park either – we’ve done our best to completely stay away from people! It looks like they had a great time at the park x

    Just an hour out seems to reset everyone I’m finding at the moment. Hope you had a good week? x

  6. A much more interesting park than ours! Nearly there with Christmas.

    I am so jealous that you are getting out and about. Fantastic. As long as you take your Anti bac spray you are fine.

  8. Andrea Fletcher

    Looks like the boys are having a good time, so nice to be able to get out at the moment.

    We wanted to put up our tree on the 1st of December, but I know that it’s not going to happen until next weekend … like every year!

    I feel like it’s forever since we visited a park, I’m just not willing to risk it at present. Such awesome shots though bring on normality (here’s hoping that’s what’s coming in 2021!)

    We had a walk this weekend, the first time we’d left the house as a family in over a month due to one or other children self-isolating at different times. I think we will put our tree up next weekend.

    Lovely photo’s love to see them having fun. They’ve grown so fast

  14. James Travis

    Not up just yet, going to wait till the start of December

    Sorry you didn’t have a great week but it was good for you to get out in the park and the boys clearly enjoyed themselves
