One of the reasons I decided to cut back my blogging schedule for a little while was so I could spend more time doing family stuff. Wednesday afternoons are usually a time I would be at home working and Rob would take the kids out before dropping Jessica at her drama class. So a couple of weeks ago I thought I would start a new family tradition and make Wednesday afternoons a time that we would all spend together doing something fun at home or having a little outing.
The squirrels were all really tame and very grateful for a few monkey nuts.
This Wednesday we had some time in our garden playing in the pool which was really lovely and the week before we popped to my favourite park to feed the birds and squirrels. I took loads of pictures while we were there and thought I’d share a few on here. When I started my blog two and a half years ago I said that I wanted to make a record of all the lovely things I’ve done and look back on them, and lovely family afternoons are one of those things that I really treasure so I’d definitely like to share more.
Lila made friends with this little cutie.
This little squirrel was a little more shy and wasn’t sure whether to join his friends!
We also got surrounded by hungry pigeons.
I had just as much fun as the kids.
I’m really glad I made the decision to take a step back for a couple of months. I love this blog so much but I love having the extra time. I’ll get back to a busier blog schedule in September when Lila starts nursery and I will actually have a bit of kid free time. I have loads of great post lined up for the next few weeks and hopefully my trusty Macbook will be fixed really soon and I’ll have my Cornwall pictures to share with you.
What are your favourite family activities? Any recommendations of things we can do for an hour in the afternoon? xxx
