This weekend was fairly jam packed. I’ll be adding further posts on some of our escapades but here’s just a snapshot.
During school holidays when nursery school isn’t on, I usually increase his days at the day nursery, but I’d taken a day off on Friday. A bit of last minute planning, and we tagged along with 2 friends from nursery school.to Stratford for some play.
We had an eventful playground experience, but here’s the boys waiting patiently for their go on a ‘digger seat’. They’re so sweet together, and it’s lovely to see N making his own friends at nursery. In this case, it’s a bonus that us mums are friends too from when we started at Water Babies when they were 3 months old.
I remembered to take my compact camera with me (my phone battery never lasts well when I take too many photos), so I can zoom in a lot closer through the crowds. These swings were brilliant as they could get on them themselves…just not get them moving!
Saturday I’d promised a quieter day as I thought N would want to go out and work on the farm with his dad. Turned out he couldn’t for most of the day, but we did go swimming in the morning as his usual lessons were off for half term. N always looks like he’s a man on a mission – complete with woggle and Trunki Paddlepak. I think he looks so much more grown up here all of a sudden.
Inspired by Monkey over at Over 40 and Mum of One with his bubble machine, we got some bubble equipment that would be easier for N than normal blowing bubbles. I took masses of photos but am still sorting through them. I never realised how hard it is to take photos while trying to waft bubbles at the same time.
After our bubbles, Sunday was exploring, and I decided to make the most of our new National Trust membership by heading over to Stowe. N loved this den that had been built on the long walk to the park.
What did you get up to this weekend?
