Spring at the Park

Yesterday after school we took a trip to the park! The weather was glorious and I wasn’t going to waste the opportunity.

It really did feel like the first day of Spring. There was a definite change in the temperature, a hint of warn air, instead of the freezing wind we’ve felt for months!

I love taking the kids out but hating the cold, I don’t do it as often as I should during the winter, but I do make up for it when the weather improves. Many Mums at our school hurry home to ‘get the dinner on’ or to be organised and keep to the routine, but not me, if the weather is nice, we’re going out! The house can wait! The kids aren’t young for ever and there’s nothing more beneficial than giving them some time to run around and stretch their legs after a long week at school!

We had a great time! I can’t tell you how good it felt to be outside and not be freezing. It WAS getting slightly chilly as we left, but the sun was still shining and the kids were happily exhausted when we got homeย ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. What a fab tree, and even more gorgeous with that blue sky behind.

  2. So lovely to see the first signs of spring and to have the daylight for a park visit after school. I hope this is a sign of things to come for the summer ahead. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

  3. I love trips to the park with the kids. Gets everyone fresh air, they have fun and it tires them out lol x

  4. Oh i love the tree climbing. It certainly has felt more like spring this last week and my lads have come home from school and played

  5. We walk through the park on the way home from school. Sometimes it takes three quarters of an hour for a 5-10 minute walk, but the children love to play.

  6. Great pics – especially the one of the kids in the tree x

    That tree looks amazing – my two would love to climb that!

  8. We walked to our local park today to feed the ducks and it was so nice to be outdoors x

  9. I took my son to the park this week for the first time this year. Got to make the most of the sunshine!

  10. No coats! Spring is a coming ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. What a wonderful tree! We don’t have any climbing tree close by, which is a shame

  12. Spring is so wonderful, less clothes and more freedom to run around and explore. It’s such a stimulating season!

  13. Looks like they had a fun time – they aren’t little for long so don’t blame you for saying the house can wait! x

  14. It is a great idea to head to the park after school on a lovely day. I don’t do it as often as I should, but I agree, it’s great exercise and fun too.

  15. I really can’t wait for the better weather to come. I braved it without a coat on Sunday then it chucked it down! Ha ha! xx

    Sounds like the perfect thing to do after school. I totally agree the house can wait, children grow up so quickly x

  17. I do love that we have had some lovely warmer days – looking forward to some dry sunny days now

  18. I am so loving the sunshine after this Winter! looks like fun, that tree is great, I want to climb it ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. I love the first signs of spring after a long grey winter! The first time going out and playing without coats is the best! Great photos.
