On Thursday the kids and I walked up to our local Supermarket then took a leisurely stroll back in the sunshine. The kids had a lot of fun exploring and playing, checking out everything that we walked past, climbing tree stumps, splashing in any puddles that were still lurking, picking fallen blossoms and collecting anything and everything they could find to show to each other and to me.
Saturday has turned out to be a lovely day too; we woke to some beautiful sunshine which had the children rushing out into the garden, still in pyjamas and fresh from the breakfast table, full of excitement and energy. It was wonderful being able to let them out to play so early; it was so bright and warm and lovely and we were all able to sit out and enjoy our little garden. While we were outside we spotted several butterflies (Amy's favourite 'bug'), some bumblebees and a ladybird, which landed on Amy's arm. I cannot wait until Summer, and I don't think the kids can either, where we will be able to have our breakfasts outside and spend the days playing in the garden and having picnics.
Saturday was also my Grandad's 80th Birthday, we had a tasty and enjoyable meal at a local restaurant as a family and then returned to my Grandparent's home for presents, cake and fun. The children spent a lot of the afternoon playing and exploring my Grandparent's garden; they have such a gorgeous garden and my two always love going round to see what they can find in it.
We've been blessed with some lovely weather this week, here's hoping that Sunday and the following week bring much of the same.
