  1. I absolutely get the park thing; when Charlie finished school all the parents were going to the park and it felt like such a mountainous task for me with the girls but they were quite manageable for a while before they started the darting in the opposite direction trick. It is so lovely when they are all out together and it feels like a massive victory for me!! xx

    • Oh I’m so glad to hear you say that Beth! I get asked to go to different places with other parents all the time and they are like ‘oh just bring the twins along too’ like it is the easiest thing in the world. It did enjoy a moment of smugness that we had done it…just before Boo fell off the roundabout, haha! xx

  2. My little boy loves the park, but honestly I don’t take him as much as I should. He loves the whole thing, from the play areas to the running around. It’s definitely just an ordinary moment, but one I hope to do more of with my son during the summer. The pictures are great, those trampolines look like so much fun. #ordinarymoments

  3. We have a teeny tiny park across the road from us and it has about 5 things in it but Z loves it so much. I think you’re completely spot on when you say they don’t really care how big it is or what they’re doing there as long as we’re having fun together x

  4. Love this Hayley – it can be so nuts sometimes your right. Wow though what you said about how they have do anything and just want us there with them really hit me. I must start being better at joining in and being “fun mummy” x

    • I thought just the same looking back at these photos, I was ‘fun mummy’ for a couple of hours and I know I really don’t do it as often as I should but we all do the best we can. Whenever I see your IG photos I think you look like fun mummy! Always so many big smiles xx

  5. Going to the park is one of the best free activities there is and we find the hours slip by, though it sounds like you need eyes in the back of your head with your twins x

  6. Gorgeous photos lovely and there’s nothing like a visit to the park to clear the cobwebs away- we do it often if we are all feeling a little cooped up. They all look like they are having lots of fun. And that trampoline looks so much fun- I wish we had one of those at our park- Mads would love it. x

    • If we get up there early to get on the trampoline it is always so much fun, Lucas will stay on it for hours if I let him! There is something about getting outdoors that seems to keep you grounded, even when they do outnumber me 🙂 xx

  7. Oh Hayley I have so been where you are now, I really think you are turning a corner, the twins are just coming to an age where they can properly join in and so long as you pick somewhere safe it will be lovely to let them play out too. Looks like you did really well, 2 hours at the park and photos too! Thank you for sharing them with me on Country Kids.

    • Honestly Fiona when I write these posts I think of you, getting out with all of yours must have been difficult yet I look at you now and see how much fun you have! It is getting easier in leaps and bounds and I love getting out with them xx

  8. I’m so jealous that your park has a trampoline! Taking 3 little ones out can be quite daunting but when mine were little I found the more we did it the more at ease everyone was 🙂

    • I think that is exactly it Katie…we haven’t done it that often so it is a little bit new to the twins. We are starting to just go for it more…what’s the worse that can happen 🙂

  9. Whaaat is that an outdoor trampoline?? That’s so awesome! Sometimes I get caught up in planning all these great things for Lyla and then I have to take a step back and remember that really Lyla is happiest doing simple things like visiting a park and having me participate in the fun with her. Kids are such a breath of fresh air with how easily they are amused!

    • Haha, I know!! The outdoor trampoline is amazing. You are totally right Tina, they are a breath of fresh air and force us to step back and make the most of everything!
