Another sunny winter afternoon and time to find another local outdoor space to go and explore. This time we were off to Langley Park, a local country park, which is somewhere we’ve visited once before whilst I was pregnant with Sophie. We had a longer walk that day to the lake and back, but on this visit we focused on a smaller section of the park.
For once, Sophie was actually awake and ready to explore! We started off in the Temple Gardens where Jessica enjoyed collecting leaves and Sophie enjoyed just having a big space where she could wander around.
I tried to get a few shots of the girls together but Sophie’s little legs weren’t always able to keep up with Jessica!
After the girls had finished their explorations of the Temple Gardens, it was time to head to the play area where Jessica found a friend to go down the slide with. I love the way children just seem to make instant friendships – at one point the other little girl was sitting at the top of the slide waiting for Jessica to climb up and join her and when her mum tried to encourage her to go down the slide, she replied “I’m waiting for my best friend!”
Sophie was getting tired by this stage and whilst she was quite happy to wander about and come and watch her sister go down the slide, she started to get a little bit grumpy and made it clear that she had had enough of it all. Jessica was also starting to look a little cold by this point so we headed home again.
