Right on our Doorstep {Ordinary Moments #19 – 10/5/15}

We love going to the local parks and play areas. It’s free, it’s an outdoors activity and more importantly, it gets our dose of Vitamin D and exercise

There are 7 parks within a few miles of our house, many of which are accompanied by fields. On Saturday we had some errands to run and popped over to the play area nearby as J had been good. We had first visited this park when J was 6 months old, for her first time on the swings. Since then she’s grown beyond belief, learned to climb, go down slides, and pretty much master everything there

It’s not my favourite play area because I think everything’s a bit too “grown up” for her and it’s way too tall for a shorty like me to help if she gets stuck or wants to use the monkey bars, but her dad loves it there (being over 6ft doesn’t have anything to do with it I’m sure…)

This time, J decided that she had enough of climbing and using the slide and decided to play tag through the field next to the play area. She’s at the stage where she really enjoys the interactive games with us and is so fast I struggle to catch her, which makes her laugh even more!

Although we’ve lived in our house for nearly 3 years and this park is one of the closest, we’ve actually never been on this particular field, so we decided to keep going to see where we would end up. It led to a really nice pathway which was covered with trees and after a short walk, took us to another park we thought was much further away. It gave us the feel of a country park as it was really remote and scenic but was right next to the hustle and bustle of the village centre

We’ll be using this walk many more times with the family, and Lexi will love the extra long time out. the bonus is that it’s all right here on our doorstep
