I start to suffer cabin fever if we are in the house for too many days on the trot, so yesterday we headed off to the park in order to get some fresh air and for a change of scenery.
Ruby chose to ride her balance bike to the park, for anyone who is unaware, a balance bike is a bike without any pedals; it was designed for children to learn to balance without having to worry about learning to pedal. The aim is that after learning to balance, they could move straight onto a regular bike without stabilisers. Ruby loves her balance bike and is always zooming here and there.
Ruby is a real thrill seeker and loves to be pushed really high on the swings, I do worry one day she will let go!
It would also seem that Lottie is following in her sisters footsteps, as she too loves the swings and when I go to push her she squeals in delight and starts laughing!
Ruby enjoyed playing on all the climbing frames and I can't believe how confident she has become.
We had a really lovely time at the park as you can see from the photos it was just what we all needed.
Just before we left to come home the heavens opened and it started to rain, so Ruby took shelter under the climbing frame!
It did me the world of good to enjoy some fresh air and Ruby enjoyed it too, however she is still not well, as she fell asleep as soon as we got back from the park. I am hoping she picks up really soon as we have a packed weekend with swimming and ballet lessons.
Just a little trip to the park this week has given us so much pleasure, what little pleasures have you enjoyed this week?
