Five minutes of fun in the park! #countrykids

Our weekends are getting more and more jam packed with stuff. Two of our girls have ‘activities’ on the weekend and they are rather incoveniently on the same day but one in the morning and one the afternoon. It doesn’t give us a lot of opportunity for spontaneity on a saturday! I also often work Friday night so it is always a bit of a challenge to try and catch up on my missed sleep.

Any time we can take to get everyone together and out for a bit of family time we try to take. Its often hindered by the weather though and recently the weather has been a bit undecided. We go from blazing sunshine to winds and rain all in the space of a few hours. It is hard to plan to do anything. So recently we grabbed the opportunity, when we had about 40 minutes in between commitments, the sun came out and so we darted out to the park. Its a local one that we have been to so many times but it us usually quite quiet which we like. The kids got on with some hide and seek games, they played with the dog, ran around and did back flips!

One of those occasions when having a big bunch of kids pays off because they all play together and reasonably well! Miracles do happen.

The OH and i got to sit and soak up a bit of sunshine for a few minutes before resuming the craziness of the day.

Doesn’t happen very often eh..

    Beautiful photos. Can totally relate to the pressures of weekends and activities. If I’m honest, I don’t even enjoy weekends much because of them. But we have a blissful few weeks off from them, so I hope we can make the most of our weekends now.

    Such an idyllic scene of family fun in the sunshine (while it lasted). You just have to grab the opportunities when they present themselves. Here’s to a summer without school and clubs and more family fun together. Impressive back flips – how she did so many without getting very dizzy though! Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
