I could rave on and on about our local area – we are so lucky to have so many fab places to go on our doorstep.
A short 5 minute drive away there is an amazing park with just a huge green area for the children to run around, a nice playground and a brilliant splash park. On hot days it is lovely to take a picnic and soak up the rays while the kids have fun and play.
Now the girls are a bit older we can sit outside the splash park and they will run in and out having fun. This time I walked the baby around so that he would have a little nap and we actually got a little bit of peaceful time!
I was looking around at the other parents, most just chatting with friends, or some on their own reading books or magazines while the children all played. There is a great atmosphere of laughter and the sound of splashing water and it is a very happy place to be.
We do a lot with our children but sometimes the most fun is taking a picnic somewhere and enjoying some free outdoors fun.
