A sunny morning in the park

The morning sunshine was too tempting to resist and having dropped Jessica off at preschool, Sophie and I headed for the park instead of going straight home again as we usually do. It was the first time that I had taken Sophie to the park on her own; the first time I had been to the park with just one small child in almost a year and a half.

Sophie enjoyed having my full attention for a change – usually she is just happy wandering about and exploring while her big sister demands my assistance with whatever she wants to go on at that moment but this time she was able to try out the rides a little more than she usually does.

The swing was fun although Sophie still needs to learn to hold on properly – she just likes to lean over the bar and look down most of the time!

She wasn’t too sure about the rocking lion and after a few seconds told me she wanted to “get down!”

The trampoline was a bit easier to walk on without a big sister jumping on it at the same time and Sophie enjoyed going down the slide on her tummy.

We took a longer route back home and explored further down our road, discovering the allotments at the end and a footpath which sadly wasn’t buggy-friendly, otherwise we would have had a wander to see where it led. Something to explore on another day I think

  1. A bit of sun makes everyone so much happier! I love this time of the year. I bet Sophie enjoyed her mummy-time in the park while her big sister was at pre-school. We had a little adventure to the park after school, too. 1 pram, 1 balance bike, 1 bike and 1 scooter. Crossing the roads was scaaaaary! I sat on the pram and read a magazine whilst the three big ones were riding around me… bliss!

    1. Ah yes, I can imagine crossing the roads was very scary. Lovely that you got to sit and read a magazine 🙂

  2. Lovely to get this first taste of spring and feel the need to stay out a little longer than usual. A perfect treat for Sophie to have a park trip just for her, I think this might become a regular event as the summer gets going. Thank you for sharing your lovely morning with me on Country Kids.

    1. Thank you – I think it will definitely become a regular thing. Lovely to link up 🙂

  3. Awww…. these precious 1:1 times are so special. Our S always seems to follow her sister when shes around as J is such a “diva” and “needs” me a lot more then S seems to. Love the slide on her belly shot! #countrykids

  4. What a fab little trip to the park, gotta love these sunny spring days! Shame about the path not being buggy friendly though. Have a great weekend hon 🙂

  5. A playground and Mum’s undivided attention is a great combination on a sunny day out!

  6. I definitely agree with you – when the sun is shinning, it’s a must to spend some time outside, even for just awhile. Little T and her dog did that today too and I’m so glad we did because the weather in the next few days won’t be as good as today 🙁 #Countrkids.

    1. It is nice to get outside whilst the weather’s nice especially now it is feeling more springlike 🙂

  7. What a lovely sunny day and the park is a great place to have fun together. It’s good to have one on one time.
    Thanks for sharing #LetKidsBeKids

  8. This is such a lovely post Louise. It must’ve felt so strange after so long to just be the two of you? Sophie is adorable, and very photogenic. Sounds like a wonderful day xxx thank you so much for linking up #justus2

    1. Thanks Alexandra – was lovely to have that one-to-one time but it did feel strange too!
