I had a few cards deliveries to make at the weekend, which I realise isn’t that scintillating for the kids, so I thought it’d be nice to tie in a trip to a new park at the end of the outing, as a treat for them being so good in the car watching me handing out my packages! And what could be more exciting than virgin territory – a new park, never before explored..?!
A few friends had mentioned it was good there, but we’d never quite got round to going, and as luck would have it, it was right by my last drop, so it was the obvious choice. Little Man actually just dropped off to sleep as we turned into the road that the park was on, but he soon came to when he realised fun was in the offing!
There was plenty to do, and Little Man climbed up onto some equipment all on his own – he was thrilled and so pleased with himself, though preferred to look over the top of the tunnel than go through it, despite Boo’s best efforts to entice him! Daddy got ‘roped’ in (do you see him there, on the rope bridge – do you see what I did?!) to venturing across the fort with Boo, and of course, Little Man was not going to miss out on that either!
It’s a shame, but it seems that as soon as November comes, playgrounds stand virtually empty. We can’t let all that play equipment go to waste, so as long as it’s dry, we’ll still be finding a playground every few days – just with warmer clothes on. Though I admit, I thought the ice cream van that was parked there was a little optimistic 😉
