A chilly afternoon in the Park

Well, after being cooped up inside for days, this afternoon, (Uncle Andrews birthday), as the sun was shining we wrapped everyone up and headed to the War Memorial Park.

Well, everyone except Daddy who wanted to stay and watch the football in peace!
It was lovely out and although it was chilly, it was lovely to get everyone outside and enjoying the freedom and fresh air.

We strolled down past the War Memorial to the playground.

Then it was a case – as is the easiest way with my two – of dividing the children and taking it in turns to follow them around the playground.

Rachel headed first for her favourite, the high log and rope course.

Jack headed for the slides and swings.

After a while, Jack decided he needed the loo, so we walked over to the café to the toilets – where he immediately asked for ice-cream. Ice-cream, really???? In this freezing weather, I don’t think so!

When we rejoined the others, Rachel was on the double swing and wanted Jack to get on so they could swing up high!

Jack soon tired of that and had a run around up and down the slopes – with me yelling to him to be careful every couple of seconds as it was still a bit icy.

We let them play for a bit longer before calling it a day and heading homewards. All feeling exhilarated but tired from the exercise!
