After a weekend of slobbing around indoors I felt like we needed some sunshine and fresh air today , I suggested we go to one of our two local parks. Wimbledon park or bishops park in Putney , the kids chose Bishops park so we packed up some food and took a short bus ride over Putney bridge
See how happy we were to be going out
I love how much green there is in Bishops park
The kids love it too. A big open space to run around and let off steam.
The first thing to do was eat so we set out our thrown together in a hurry picnic in a sunny spot by the water
And for pudding , ice cream
The kids had a play in the playground , which is really good since it had a bit of a refurb
It was so nice to see them playing together
There’s also a big area for scooting , next time we will be bringing scooters.
After lots of spinning , swinging and climbing we went to the ” beach ”
The water wasn’t turned on , I guess it hasn’t really be good enough weather for it but the kids love playing in the sand. And I got to sit and have a read in the sun
They played for an hour in the sand. We didn’t even have a bucket and spade they just dug , buried and built together. And the weather was just perfect
We had a nice walk back along the river
And a bit more of a run and a play
Then we jumped on a bus back over the river and finished our lovely day in the best way
We had a lovely day out and the ice creams weren’t too overpriced £ 1:60 each , I’ve paid a lot more .
There will be lots more days at bishops park for us over the summer
I almost forgot to mention my favourite thing about the day , O didn’t wear his coat. He wore a hoodie. Zipped up and hood up of course. But it’s a grand step forward !
