When I looked at photos taken over the last week, my word of the week was obvious, playparks. We seem to have spent a lot of time at various playparks this week and it is lovely to look back at so many pictures of smiling children. It is also nice to have a happy word of the week agan last week after feeling everything was so relentless last week.

Last friday we met up with my best Mummy friends and all 8 of our children and it was so so much fun. We had a great time together and the kids had a great time together too. The weather is lovely and warm but not too hot and it was an afternoon full of smiles.

Saturday I had some time off with a good friend of mine in Cambridge which I so so needed and enjoyed so that was a day without playparks.

Sunday our little loonies needed to get out of the house by 9am so we headed to a nearby playpark as a family to get out of the house and let the kids burn off some steam! We had a lovely time all together and was much nicer to see the kids smiles rather than getting wound up with them bouncing off the walls at home.

Monkey loved going down the slide with Daddy & LM and tried just aboout every seating combination possible!

Monday I did visit a playpark on my morning walk with my neighbour (again around 9am) but didn’t take any photos.

Tuesday I met up with one of my Mmmy friends again at our local country park for some fun at not 1, but 2 different playparks! Yet more photos of smily happy kids having fun playing together, and mucking about ‘saving’ each other on the field too!

We have needed tog et out of the house quite a lot this week as the builders are back and our new room (which was the garage) is nearly finished, and the utility and new garage are taking shape too! I will share a post more about that another day but oh the dust and the noise this week! We had a few days off from Playpark visits though as the rain set in on Tuesday afternoon and it was very, very wet… Lots of splashing in puddles instead πŸ™‚

Then this morning with the sun out again (albeit a bit chillier) it was time for another 9am playpark visit!

  1. Loving all your playpark visits this week – looks like it has been such a fun week and Monkey and LM look like they are really enjoying themselves in all your photos. Love the photo of Monkey splashing in puddles – such a lovely childhood moment πŸ™‚

  2. It’s great that you’ve been out enjoying the sunshine so much this week, I’m amazed how many play parks you managed to fit in. Monkey and LM look so happy in all the photos, it’s not hard to guess where their favourite place to be is. I love the photos of LM, Monkey and Daddy on the slide in all the different formations too, that made me chuckle slightly. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.

  3. It’s nice that play parks are so easily accessible. We have loads of local play areas near our house which are free to explore. Often though we don’t visit as they are empty and a bit depressing. We must visit them more when they bring so much joy for little ones! #LetKidsBeKids x

  4. What a fun week! Such lovely photos that will be wonderful memories when the children are older. I am familiar with the nightmare of building work going on when the children are small – so good luck and hope it is completed on time. Thanks for sharing #LetKidsBeKids

  5. Lovely photos. Play parks are great for getting out with the kids. I’ve only been to 2 so far this week but I know the number will rise before the weekend. My daughter has started requesting park!

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
