Country Kids: cycling to the pond

Country Kids Cycling to the Pond

Regular readers will know that I’ve just been back in the UK, leaving the kids with my husband. They had lots of adventures while I was away, in fact I think they rarely sat still. In the run up to my leaving there were also several outings, mainly to leave me in peace while I organised the house and packed!

One of these trips involved a cycle to our local pond while the wee girl napped, giving me a much needed hour of to-do list management :)




The boys sped off along the path next to the pond, hubby running to keep up… The last photo above does have the 8yo in it… if you look very closely!

Then it was time for relaxing next to the pond. On their return home I was told all about the makeshift boats that were made, the sticks and stones that were thrown as well as how fast they cycled.



And, of course, there were snacks!



I was really sad to have missed this outing, the photos were so lovely and they had clearly had such a good time. Both boys love their bikes, and they love impromptu picnics!


Now that I am home again, and the holidays are in full swing, I am looking forward to lots of outdoor adventures. The boys don’t go back to school until the end of August. There is plenty of time for more afternoons like this one.

I’m linking up with the wonderful Country Kids at Coombe Mill, as always. Click on the badge to see what everyone else has been up to and be inspired to get outside!

  1. What gorgeous photography & brilliant models! I do find mine are a little more ‘adventurous’ when just out with Daddy, it’s a different type of adventure! I bet everyone got big cuddles on your return #countrykids

    1. I was so pleased when I saw the photos, they are lovely. Mine are definitely more adventurous when just with daddy! I’m still getting lots of cuddles :)

  2. Looks like a great place to cycle. How organized to remember a picnic. They do look chilled sitting by the pond. I know the feeling about seeing the photos of the outings I’ve just missed. Can’t do everything. #CountryKids

    1. It’s a lovely pond and when you’re right next to it you couldn’t imagine that it’s in the middle of town. Hubby is always organised with snacks :)

  3. How lovely to be able to cycle along there in safety. My two would love that as well. I know what you mean about being sad to miss the fun, but is hope you enjoyed the peace to catch up :)

    1. It is a lovely pond, and so close to home. And, I managed to get some sorting and packing done!

    1. Thanks Jo, the boys do love their bikes :) I’m settling back in, have caught up on some sleep now!

  4. Very relieved that this was not ‘Cycling into the pond’ as bizarrely I first read the title!!! Looks like a fun trip was had by all and a lovely spot to visit. Have a lovely holiday period all together! #countrykids

  5. Perfect chance for some outdoor bonding and fun for all the boys in your family while you had some time for preparations. Looks like a great area for cycling for kids!

  6. Sounds and looks like they had a wonderful time Sara. I hope you enjoyed the wedding, had a good trip back and are slowly catching up. I’m behind just from working in London for 3 days! So I’ll be back, can’t wait to see the new place x

  7. That looks like a wonderful spot to cycle, and to be by the water for a little fun and a snack it always perfect. Great photos. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  8. When I need to do something too its my husband who babysit my son and they really do special things. SOmetimes I have envy sometimes I dont but it always sounds and looks fun like this one. #countrykids

  9. This actually looks very similar to a country park on our doorstep (though I know it’s not!) There’s nothing nicer than just ‘chilling’ close to water with the sun dappled through the trees. So calming.
