active family month; week two: playtime

We took a little trip to Blaise castle this weekend to enjoy some of the better weather we've had this weekend, and considering I was stuck inside all day Saturday I really needed to get out and enjoy some time with Rob and Theo. My mum and Andy also joined us for the day, which was even better to be out and enjoying Sunday with them too.

Rob started his new job this week, which means that he has EVERY weekend off, no more working sundays ever again...It feels like such a luxury to be out doing family things like visiting the park and going for walks like a normal family!

As part of the Mark Warner Active Family Challenge that I'm taking part in we thought we would incorporate this weeks challenge of 'active playtime' into our day. Not that we did anything we wouldn't normally do on a trip to the park! You can see another trip we took to Blaise nearly exactly a year ago doing the exact same thing (we have been back in between that though!) Look how little Theo is! We played football, played in the park, went for a walk in the woods and of course ate ice cream! We bought a second hand scooter for Theo a few weeks back, and he's slowly getting the hang of it. He figured out how to push himself along straight away, but the steering is taking a little longer to get the hang of, so we had a little practice! It was the perfect way to spend a sunny active Sunday with family.

Here are a few photos from our walk through the woods with a pretty tired out boy from all our playing!

It was a beautiful day! After our walk we made our way home and whilst Theo slept we did some much needed gardening and then enjoyed a BBQ, perfect!

What did you all get up to this weekend? I hope it was sunny for you as well? Did you do anything active with your family, go for a walk, to the park or a bike ride?

I would love it if you shared your adventures with me, so please leave your link!

  1. He's so skilled physically - amazing with that football, and I think you have a matter of days before you're chasing him down on that scooter! Clever boy. Looks like a lovely day...
