At last, a sunny Friday! It’s been a while since it was warm and dry enough on a Friday to take the 5yo and the wee girl out and about.
One of our favourite parks is the Common. It’s in the centre of town and has a concrete area for scooting and cycling; complete with town (and resident) provided ride-ons; a sandpit, swings, a toddler climbing frame and a big kids one. It’s a great park and the wee girl and 5yo particularly like playing with all the different tricycles and cars.
As soon as we arrived they both ran for the toys. The Little Tikes Cozy Coupes were very popular today!
Scooters and tricycles were also a hit, although the wee girl is a bit miffed that her feet don’t quite reach the pedals and she can’t quite manage to move them…
The wee girl was in her element, running around and climbing. She spent quite a bit of time on a toddler slide :)
The 5yo also had fun climbing.
It was wonderful to be out in the warm sunshine, enjoying the park. It was interesting to see how much more confident the wee girl is now. She doesn’t need my help to get on and off the toys anymore, and she’s nearly big enough for the tricycles :)
After playing with his sister, the 5yo had a play date with two of his teachers and three of his school friends at the park; a treat that one of his classmates had won at a fundraiser; so the wee girl and I left him to it (two hours of games and pizza!) and headed home for an hour or so (in the vain hope that she would nap, she didn’t!). We’d had a lovely morning, and our summer trips to the Common have begun!
I’m linking up with the wonderful Country Kids at Coombe Mill again this week. Click on the badge to see what everyone else has been up to and be inspired to get outside!
