In just 2 weeks the trees have shed their leaves, the weather has changed and we’ve seen a lot more rain than normal, and it feels as though winter is showing it’s harsh side to us. Most people dislike winter but I am definitely not one of those people, in fact I love it; cold walks leaving you with rosy cheeks and red noses, hot chocolates, casseroles and cosy warm homes to return to
The parks are also generally empty of the fair-weather walkers leaving you more space to explore and not worry about your dog ruining peoples picnics. It’s my second favourite season after Autumn, I mean who doesn’t love the colours, the sun and the glow in the afternoon Autumn gives you, when it’s not quite cold enough for coats, but cold enough for a body warmer and bobble hat
A few weeks ago J learned to ride her bike and was desperate to show her granddad her newfound skill on one of his days off work. She showed off her growing confidence on the bike, riding around cones and to the end of the track, waiting patiently each time for us to catch up. We settled once again for hot chocolates, a play in the children’s area and a catch up before heading back to the car. The sky was clear and crisp, and there was a lovely feel amongst the families out and about in the beautiful yellow sun
On the way back we stopped in one of the fields to capture some photos of us all. My dad hasn’t been out for a walk with us since January 2015 so I took the opportunity of everyone being together and bought the large camera out with us for a group photo
As for theses pictures, well I love them and they make me laugh and smile. They’re not everyone’s cup of tea in terms of exposure, but they’re so typical of our family – perfect for the imperfections, and it was a great day out had by all.
