One of the best things about beautiful weather is being able to take stunning photos. This weekend’s definitely had some great weather, and there’s been a lot of photo opportunities amongst the weekend’s outdoor fun.
For us it started after nursery on Friday when I dug out the frame paddling pool I bought in last year’s sales. N got very excited about having it put up as the day before he’d spent his nursery afternoon in someone’s paddling pool as part of their end of term fun day. We had to ‘borrow’ the lodgers’ hose and tap next door, as our outdoor tap is over their side of the garden. It took a lot of patience waiting for it to fill, but quicker than having it filled from the kitchen sink via watering can!
No faffing about, N was straight out of his clothes and into the paddling pool.
Even on Saturday morning when we had more rain, N wanted to be playing by the paddling pool.
Obviously ice lollies have been required this weekend…he even asked for one as pudding, rather than having the yummy victoria sponge I’d baked!
Sunday was a full day so we made use of our Compton Verney annual pass, visiting with a friend and her baby. It’s always a lovely walk around there, we had some lunch and a good chat. N just liked being outside and having the freedom to do what he wanted.
It was Granny’s birthday as well. N wanted to carry the flowers we’d bought her, over to the farm. It was so sweet seeing him carrying them – let’s get him started early in giving flowers to girls in the hope it’ll be natural to him as he grows up!
What did you get up to this weekend? Did you get the thunderstorms too?
