An afternoon at the park....

Hasn't the weather been lovely....On Tuesday we had sat around all morning being very lazy and not really doing much....By the afternoon I felt like we should be doing something and be outside enjoying the sunshine so we decided to go to the park...The girls took their scooters....Scooting is so much more fun than walking!


We have 3 parks near where we live....We ended up visiting two of them. The big one and a little one that we rarely go to....


I was quite surprised the big park wasn't busier....There were only about 10 kids there. Hooray for us! The girls didn't have to wait to get on anything and I had plenty of opportunities to take photos and record some video clips....

We had a great couple of hours.....We really should have gone earlier and taken a picnic as it was such a nice day.

  2. It looks like a perfect day for enjoying the park and how wonderful to have it to yourselves! It's amazing how fast time goes by when the kids are entertained and park equipment always brings a smile to their faces. Sounds like you have some great choices around you too.

  3. There is sometimes nothing better than the park. It's always so much fun isn't it? We've been about a million times over the summer holidays!

  6. I love those simple activities. The scootering is fun by itself, but the park is most certainly the icing on the cake. Happy days. #CountryKids

      I think I timed it just right...It had been raining off and on all morning and people must have been put off by it. hehehe

  9. Hurray for scooters! They are always a great way to get my children out the door too (though Pokemon hunting has been working well of late!). The playgrounds look great and always a bonus when the weather is so gorgeous and the playgrounds not too busy :)

    1. My girls love their scooters....We haven't got into Pokemon go. We only have PAYG phones so running it costs a fortune.

  12. What a lovely day at the park :) We had a similar day not long ago, was a really nice day and hardly anyone was on the park so the girls got to try out all of the equipment! Scooting always looks like so much fun and your video will be great to look back on :) #countrykids
