Last weekend, the husband was working and I was home alone with the children. I hadn’t really planned anything to do and they were desperate to get out and down to the local park. It was cold but dry so how could I refuse them some fresh air fun.
Miss M wanted to go on her roller blades which she absolutely loves, in fact I can’t believe how well she does on them considering she is only just six and doesn’t get a lot of opportunities to practice.
With the park quite empty, they ran around freely having a go on everything that took their fancy, giggling together as they played completely carefree in the cold, breezy air.
No matter how cold it was, their spirits never dropped, their smiles never wavered, whilst mummy sat huddled on a bench in a bid to keep warm!
After exhausting all the activities in the park, we wandered across to the pretend road, a great little area where children can play on their bikes, scooters and in Miss M’s case, her roller blades. Mister B stood on the painted garage and insisted Miss M brought her roller blades to the garage to be fixed!!
After a fun filled but cold afternoon, we headed home, Miss M on her roller blades gliding hand in hand with Mister B. I love watching them both get on so well and enjoying each others company.
Mummy was relieved to get home and warm up, I must remember to dress up a bit more next time, having forgotten my gloves and could have done with an extra layer, but it was worth it to watch my two little ones having a few hours of outdoor fun together!
This looks like a really great park, and there’s no better way to keep warm in the cold weather than running (or skating) around!

Looks like a really fun afternoon – it’s good to get out of the house for a while isn’t it!
It sounds and looks like they had such fun together and how lucky to have the park to themselves. With all the rain we’ve been having you have to take advantage of when it’s dry. Thanks for linking up and sharing their fun with Country Kids.
Looks like a brilliant day at the park. Nice to have some good weather to get out to play!
Lovely photos of them together. Must have made it much easier to be home alone!
