Playing outdoors

The weather has been so lovely lately which means the children have enjoyed plenty of time playing outside. Today they were looking through the play house and decided to get the teepee out. They also had a pretend picnic with all their play food.

They were lucky to get an upgrade to their trampoline and Daddy kindly built it when he got home. Pictures to follow soon!

A new badge

Big Brother seemed happy to go to Beavers this evening. This term they are taking part in lots of activities so they can earn some new badges. He brought home the biggest badge I have ever seen (or sewn) – a special one to celebrate 30 years of the Beaver Scouts.

The park, swimming and a ride on the train

We heard that our local park had had a bit of a makeover so, as the sun was shining, we decided to go and check it out. We took the bikes too so they cycled round the park a few times first. Then it was time to explore the new playground.

Everything had been replaced and there was plenty to keep them busy and test their skills. The playground is always full of people and the children had so much fun trying everything out. One of us may have got stuck at the top of the climbing frame but his younger sister showed him how to get down!

After their weekly swimming lesson we headed to Roxbourne Model Railway which has recently opened for the year. We all had a ride on the train before enjoying an ice cream and heading home after a busy day.
