In The Park

We have had some sunshine this week, so we've taken advantage of it by spending time in the local parks.
Hannah was keen to do some nature activities, and really wanted to make some leaf and bark rubbings, so we went along to Bransbury Park on Monday. It was a beautiful day, and we began by having coffee with a lovely new homeschooling mum in the cafe there. Then we went out to the miniature railway area which has a little copse in the middle.




 Hannah busied herself choosing leaves and areas of bark to take rubbings from,





 and found the perfect climbing tree!



This is the highest she has ever dared to go - we will definitely be going back to this tree frequently this summer!!


 The railway is only open on a Sunday, so Hannah amused herself balancing along the railway line,

 and hanging upside down from the soccer goal post before we went home!

Yesterday we were going to spend the day at home as I had the makings of a migraine, but the sun was so inviting we decided to go along to the little playground near our house instead.



Hannah took her soccer ball and practised kicking it (daddy has been teaching her and she wanted to practise so she can show him how well she is doing!). After kicking it around for a while she thought she'd try to shoot some hoops as she has seen some basketball on tv and thought it looked fun. 


She is a bit too little for them really but she tried super hard and did finally get the ball through the hoop!

I think this might be another sport she needs to play with daddy.......................watch out daddy, she'll have you fit in no time lol!!
