Monday was Harrison’s last day before going back to school. With Benjamin being so poorly over Christmas and having to wait in every day for the nurses to come and give him his antibiotics, we have done absolutely nothing, so we made the most of the fact it wasn’t raining and headed to the park. One of my New Years Resolutions was to get out the house more. Living in inner city Birmingham means there is a shortage of nice parks, and we don’t have a car at the moment so are limited to local parks. Our nearest one is a ten-minute walk away and, although nothing special, is perfect for the kids to have a play in.
It was the perfect chance to have a play around with the filters on my iPhone camera – I love how moody the sky looks over the hill.
Both kids loved climbing all over the equipment. Alex still needs a leg up on some of it but he is absolutely fearless!
Harrison is a little bit more cautious than Alex, but still insists on giving me a near heart attack jumping off high ledges!
Their favourite bit of the park, without a doubt, are the swings. Graham was pushing them and they both wanted to go higher. My heart was in my mouth seeing how high they were going, but they loved it.
Proves you don’t need to go far to enjoy the outdoors!
