After a rainy few days the sun decided to show his face at the end of this week, so we headed out to the park to meet up with friends and have a run around. And Rhys hit a big milestone while we were there – he worked up the courage to go down the fireman’s pole! He’d been building up to it for ages, and so badly wanted to do it, so he was really proud of himself when he managed it. He must’ve done it about 20 times in a row once he’d mastered it!
Nerys is so keen to keep up with the bigger kids, she gives me mini heart attacks now and again trying to do things she’s not quite ready to do! I’m much more relaxed when she’s safe on the swings!
Luckily for me she’ll sit quite happily on the swings for quite a while, before she gets bored of it and wants to get out and run around again.
I do love our local park and we spend a fair bit of time there when it’s dry. The children have a good play at the playground, then we tend to wander over to the other side of the park where the duck pond is. It’s a nice little routine that I think we’ll repeat many times this summer!
