First Sunny Day


On Saturday we had some really beautiful weather!  I honestly couldn't wait to get outside, even for half an hour.  We had family visiting too which was nice.  The good thing about where we stay is, it has grassy areas and I can sit on the little step and watch the kids run riot. I know it's not going out as in away from the house but it is still outside at the end of the day!




We took a football and bubbles out with us for the kids to play with.  I decided to take a seat this time so I could sit in the sunshine.  Well I wanted to make the most of the sun, it is unreliable after all.  Liam and James were playing football and I was blowing pretty bubbles for Sophie.


 Not long later some of Liam's school friends came to play too so while he was running around with them, Sophie took over the football and took great pleasure in winding her Daddy up before having a rest.



It is amazing how the sun can change your outlook on things.  We brought the kids in for a while and 5 minutes there was a knock at the door.  One of Liam's school friends asking if he could come out to play, how cute is that!  So I went back out with Liam.  As he was going to a different part of the street I went with him so I could keep an eye on him.  I was sitting with the other parents whilst the kids played chasing games.  After 20 minutes he was hungry, typical boy, so we came home again.

Saturday was such a lovely day. Has the weather been nice where you are?

    1. I agree, outside is much more entertaining for kids that electronics. That is fine over winter when they can't really get outside or for a rainy day but when the sun is out there is only one place for them to be xx
