This weekend we had family visiting and today we decided to take advantage of a dry spell and go for a walk.
We had the usual chaos when we left the house; boys didn’t want to put jackets on, I had to run back in the house to check the coffee machine was off, boys didn’t want to get in the car, boys didn’t want to get out the car…..
We told the boys they could take one thing with them for the walk. Bob L decided to take his bike. He always picks his bike. This consistency has paid off, he is fast and it is a good workout for me to run alongside him.
Bob D decided to go off-piste (sorry I couldn’t resist the pun) and take his ski poles with him. To his credit he did carry them the whole time. He told passers-by he was skiing. Which probably was quite confusing as there was no snow and we were no-where near the ski slopes.
We started off by playing around in a fabulous park, which is really designed for adults doing gym work-outs. The boys loved it all the same.
As we kept walking we discovered a brilliant open-air museum, complete with windmill, rabbits and a cafe. It was a small 19th century village and it felt like we had stepped back in time. The boys were more interested in biking / skiing around the houses. They were impressed with the rabbits though.
We had a lovely afternoon. The boys didn’t want to get in the car to go home. Then they didn’t want to get out the car when we arrived back at the house….they wanted to stay there ‘all by self’.
Eventually the promise of snacks and an afternoon movie lured them inside. They are now happily sat with onesies on. Batman and superman of course, in-keeping with the superhero theme from yesterday. If you don’t know what I mean, check out my earlier Instagram post.
