Last weekend we went to the Cushion Concert in Oxford which was great fun, and went down brilliantly with N and his friend L.
We decided that afterwards we’d head to the river and have a picnic for lunch. Of course I’d not taken into account that it’s quite a walk for 3 year old legs, so luckily we found a slightly shorted route to Christ Church meadows. We spotted a bit of the river…complete with lots of punters which the children were very interested in.
It was already some time past ‘lunchtime’ and the children didn’t want to walk further to the main part of the river that we would usually sit near. This might have had something to do with the attempts to climb every tree they came too.
After a lovely picnic, it was time for a bit of a run around. When there were trees to investigate and a large green space, even food was a distraction for the two of them getting the chance to race around.
It was lovely to watch them. L would run off, then N would run and usher her back. Then they’d try and climb every tree in sight. It took a long time to leave and head back to the bus stop, thanks to the trees.
They definitely had a long day and walk. Not too much moaning from them – it’s always helpful to have a friend with them, then there’s definitely less moaning from N compared to when he’s on his own.
