Moments To Remember

Calderstones Liverpool (7 of 9)

Me and my husband were talking a few days ago about all the funny things the boys say. You know those words that they don’t get quite right but somehow they stick in their heads; I don’t even correct them most of the time because they just tickle me. There are several that Lucas refuses to say right, like ‘twenteen’ for twenty, whenever I correct him he just says ‘but I say it this way Mummy’. Not much I can say to that really. My favourite has to be ‘baracuna’ for racoon, we have even adopted that one ourselves.

After we’d had a good chuckle about them I turned to him and said that maybe we won’t remember all these little things when they are older. That’s part of the reason why I’ve put them in here, so I do remember but also I wanted to share some photos of our weekend. They aren’t anything particularly new or exciting, it is something we have done hundreds of times before but I still don’t want to forget.

We took Nanny out with us to our favourite place, Calderstones Park and had a picnic lunch. We’ve been there so many times before, and I’m sure there are photos on my blog somewhere from this time last year sharing very similar things but here I am, sharing some more. I won’t remember every little park visit when they are older, they are a pretty standard day out for us. Whenever the sun shines and we don’t have any plans we head to this park, we stick to the same paths and visit the usual spots. I let them run round the playground for the shortest time possible before luring them out with the promise of ice cream on the walk back to the car.

They are at a great age as they play together when they are out, create their own fun. Bear will follow Lucas everywhere and Boo will stick close to us having the odd surge on independence before coming back to safety. I want to remember the way Boo collects pinecones and stuffs his pockets full of them, how Bear does a little stroppy jump when we walk down a path different to the one he wanted, how Lucas collects the fallen petals and brings them to us as gifts. All little things that will pass as the years do but little things that mean the world to me right now.

    Hayley!! Paul and I had exactly the same discussion earlier and I said that I want to spend some time videoing the boys. Not to share … just for us to look back on. My current favourite is them saying cue-weed for kiwi. It cracks me up and I’m in absolutely no rush to correct them 🙂 Beautiful photos, too x

      Thanks Rachel, cue-weed is a great one! They do give me a proper giggle, I just love their sincerity when they say it, so sure they have got it right xx

    How funny about the things they say posts! We totally are on the same wavelength 🙂 I think barracuna has to be one of the best words ever invented, I will definitely be using it. Still haven’t been to Calderstones, I need to go! xx

      Haha, I know! Lucas has Christmas PJ’s with a racoon on the front and he kept saying to us, ‘the barracuna ones’ it took us so long to realise what he meant!!

    Beautiful pics Hayley and love the things they are saying. Stuff like that cracks me up too and I do so hope I will remember them. Ethan says the same to me about thats how he says it and I feel a bit bad for stepping in. My fave word from him is cuepumber for cucumber… it was gorgeous in subway when he asked the lady for some on his sandwich haha x

      It is so sweet isn’t it, I’m just love listening to all the funny things they say rather than correcting them…although I do hope Lucas decides to say twenty properly soon 🙂 xx

    So cute! Love it when they get words ‘wrong’…! Harry called Lottie Hattie, even though he can probably say Lottie…it’s adorable! This place looks amazing, I love anything like this – so beautiful xx

    We like taking Little Miss’s nana out for a ride too, and we love all out parks. We’re so lucky to lie within such a short drive to so many.
    Looks like you had a lovely day… and as for the kiddies speech – little miss gets her Ls and Ws mixed up. So cute xXx

      It’s always good to have an extra pair of hands I find, also they know they can get round Nanny easily so it’s a fun day! xx

    Sooooo true. It is the little things that we will miss one day and for all the photos we take I always think we don’t capture enough. I might have to make a resolution for May and record the boys a bit more!
