Yes, you read right, a mini heatwave!! And as such today we shelved our usual outing to softplay (in the process saving ourselves £8) and headed over to a great playground not too far from home which my friend suggested for our weekly get together. Normally we treat ourselves to a coffee or hot chocolate at softplay but I was pinning my hopes on there being an ice cream van there so that I could get a coke today as I was parched! Fortunately one did eventually turn up!
The kids had a lovely time and as you can see from the photos, there is a very wide range of play equipment and its all safely housed within a large fenced area so I didn’t have to worry about EJ wanting to follow his big brother outside of any gates or next to any roads or car parks and he was incredibly intrepid, climbing completely unassisted over horizontal ladders with big gaps between rungs and shooting off down the big kids slide, no need for any input from Mummy (except for the occasional drink or snack!).
Meanwhile JJ had a lovely time with his friend on the unusual seesaw, rope climbing frame and basket swing.
I noticed at one point that EJ was trying to camouflage himself in his immediate surroundings:
No tears on the walk back to the car:
And on that same walk, I noticed some tree trunks that looked disturbingly like a huge pair of dinosaur feet fast approaching!:
Or is it just me? 🙂
