Family Day at the Park


We love going to the park and having a nice day so yesterday when my husbands brother asked if we wanted to go to the bigger park closer to him we jumped at the chance. We went to Armley Park, which is about 20 minutes away from us, it has a children's play area plus huge fields to play sports and have a run. It also has a river running down the back of it but we couldn't get to see it as there are 142 steps to get down to the river and we had the pram.


Thomas loves going to the park, playing on the swings, roundabout and his favourite, the slides but as you can see from the photo below Charlie did not enjoy himself. He'd got himself over tired by refusing to sleep before we set off so was a bit moody at the park.


A scorcher of a day meant we were all out. Simon's mum Annie, his brother Wayne and brother's fiancĂ©e Nina, nephew's Casey and Nathan and their dog, Diesel. 
Reaching for the trees on daddies shoulders was fun for Thomas, he did try playing football with his cousins but it was quite hard as they are older and bigger than him so would have to keep stopping to let Thomas have a kick but at least they let him join in.


Finally, we set off home with Simon's mum and as she was looking after Nathan, he came too. It was still hot outside so we got the pool out. I think Thomas loved having someone to play with, Charlie is still too young to play so Thomas usually ends up in the garden playing with me or Simon.


We kept Charlie inside where it was cool but opened the patio doors so the kids could come in and out as they pleased.

I think having enjoyable days out with family is great, getting to catch up with the ones we don't get to see often and letting Thomas get out and play.
Going to the park is one of the best ways to keep children entertained, it costs nothing but gives kids loads of things to do. Just take some sandwiches, drinks, a football and your sorted!
