I’m not sure of the last time we actually got our for a family walk; the cold weather, bugs and illnesses have all transpired against us. This weekend though we had a completely free weekend. One day was spent in our pjs at home, relaxing and playing but on the Sunday we needed some fresh air so visited Calderstones Park. It isn’t really our local park being a 20 minute drive away but it is one of my favourites. There are so many different places to explore and a fantastic little cafe, The Reader, in the middle of it all.
We parked up and got everyone out and ready to go and took our time strolling through the gates and up the long path. The trees are still bare but there are signs of spring; the odd daffodil and a few crocus’. Although it was still quite chilly we didn’t have to be completely wrapped up. We made it to the cafe and stopped for a cup of tea and cake. It was so busy there and I wish I’d been able to get some photographs inside the cafe; they have books hanging in birdcages and shelves filled with second hand books to buy. It is so sweet and quirky. All the food looks amazing and they have so much for children, including warm Ribena!
It was quite cold and I had forgotten Lucas’ gloves so after a quick run around the playground we had to call it a day. I made a little video of our afternoon which I am really excited about. I really admire other bloggers videos and it is something I’ve wanted to do for so long but quite frankly we have hardly left the house over winter. I love that it creates little snippets of the boy’s childhood to look back on and it captures them in a totally different way to a photograph. However, all my attention focused on filming I completely failed to get photos; apparently I can’t do both so will have to work on that!
