Walking in fields of gold

We had a lovely bank holiday weekend that we spent very lazily really. My favourite day was definitely the Monday. We didn’t have any plans which is always the best kind of day really. The day started in a lovely fashion as I was treated to a lie in and a cup of tea in bed. Unfortunately Little Mr had his eye on all of the pancakes but I will let him off this time.

I had one mission today and that was to find a beautiful golden rapeseed field to take some pictures, Mr H had one mission and his was to have pizza for lunch! I had planned to do this when we visited Mablethorpe but unfortunately Little Miss was too poorly with chicken pox.

I won first and we had a lovely drive around finding our perfect location. We are lucky that there are lots of colourful fields within a short distance of our home. Once we found the perfect place we began. Little Miss and Little Mr had a fab time running around and laughed non stop.

They are not the best and by no means but I love them. Little Mr does too and when we viewed them on the computer he was already picking out the ones that he wanted on his wall.

 

I love this picture of Little Mr, he looks so relaxed and happy. He was watching and waiting for his Daddy to chase him here.

 


This is Little Mr’s favourite picture. He loves being thrown high by his Daddy. I had a go too (at throwing the children, not being thrown) but I am not as brave at letting go.

 

Above is Little Mr’s favourite
“Aww I love this one of Little Miss she is so cute, its much better than the ones of nothing.”
 
I love the ones of Little Miss and Mr running towards each other and holding hands. I love seeing their precious little bond and how much they love and care for each other.

After our family adventure it was pizza time. Yipeee!
Here are some more pictures from the fields of gold.

Spring Paintings

Yippee spring is in the air and the house and garden are full of flowers. What better inspiration for some spring panting. Little Mr loves painting and being outside so we decided to add our own dash of spring colour to the garden.

  

We used foam paint which is a firm favourite in our house.

This is what we ended up with. Note Little Mr’s favourite colour this week is red, hence the red leaves too.

Little Miss is a little too young for outside painting as yet but still wanted to get in on the action. We decided to use Centre Parcs creative director Emma’s top tip of finger painting. 

 



 

However it turns out finger/hand printing is a little tricky with a baby who loves to clench her fists and a toddler intent on painting everything in sight red. we swiftly decided to move onto feet.

We had great time!



Oh and this is what happens to your patio doors if you turn your back for a second.

This is my entry to Centre Parcs and Tots100 March challenge. If I am chosen I would like to visit Sherwood Forest.

 


Spring is on its way!!

Recently we had some visitors for a play date. One of my oldest friends from university and her little girl. It’s not often we get to meet up as we live over 70 miles apart but it is always lovely when we do. It’s great to see our children play together – very different to our party hard university days.

                         

As it is officially spring I thought I would used springtime as the theme for the days activity table.  
                                

      

Little Mr has a cute yellow suitcase that was perfect for making a spring treasure chest. It actually belongs to Little Miss as we received an outfit in it when she was born. The case is just as great as the outfit and I have used it for many many things.
                                  
I made the case up the evening before. Filled it with shredded green paper, fluffy chicks, soft multi coloured balls and some plastic eggs which ad hidden surprises inside. I bought some daffodils too to add a delicious springy smell.

  

                                  
Little Mr picked out these two teddys before bed to add to the spring time theme (with a little help as we may have ad Buzz and Woody from Toy Story).

   

I also laid out a sticking activity using some Easter from stickers. Little Mr loves stickers at the moment but still needs a little help with these as the back are tricky to get off. So not a great independent activity.

After a morning full of fun and play we had set of lunch and then headed to the park.  It had been. A lovely day when we set off but started to throw it down so we took shelter in the local shop. A great idea with two hyped up children (NOT, see photo evidence, ha) but still better than getting soaked. It was a great day  and lovely to catch up with old friend especially when they have very exciting news to share 😉 I haven’t got many pictures of the actual day, I am always too busy enjoying the moment I forget half of the time.

Here Little Miss as with all the excitement with the older two she missed out on her usual activities and play. We had lots of cuddles to catch up later though which was great.
