We look after Grandson Ashley about once a week, usually on a Friday or Saturday. Since we came back from Australia about 5 weeks ago the weather has been poor so outdoor play in the park has been off the agenda as it’s been muddy and damp.
It gets really frustrating knowing that this little boy loves a good run around a field and to play in the park. So it was great to see the sun shining on Friday and remained shining when we had him on Saturday.
We walked across to the park – a challenge in itself now as he refuses to hold hands – ‘Mr Independent’! There were lots of leaves on the main field and I picked some up and threw them into the air, he was soon doing the same! We made our way into the park and we were surprised at how adventurous he’s got, he tried climbing up over a stepped dome and even walked along a wobble board, he’s never tried before.
He loves the small activity playhouse which has a tunnel, slide and steering wheel. It was really funny watching him go through the tunnel, the surface was cold and he tried getting through without putting his hands down!
It was really good getting some fresh air and time in the autumn sun.
