As the week has come to a close it has become a bit obvious that the wee man is not feeling a 100% himself. As I went to bed Thursday night I said to hubby that tomorrow would probably be a quiet day resting. One thing my toddler does not know to do well though is rest! Our usual Friday morning swim was definitely off the agenda but with the sun shining rather brightly outside I decided I may as well wrap him up extra warm and head to our local park. Getting him out of the door was a bit of a "hands on" experience as he literally flung himself to the floor refusing to move without his dummy. I kept wondering why I was bothering! This is for him! For him to enjoy not necessarily to torture him. Thankfully once out of the door and in the buggy he appeared to calm so I thought well at least we would get some fresh air! To our surprise it was not just sunny but warm. The wee man must of felt the warmth as well because once at the park he cheered right up and was asking to walk.
We quickly found our favourite puddle!
Then we found sticks to throw into the fountain. Empty at this point in time it still has enough rain water in it to amuse my wee man.
It also seemed to be a morning for marching and singing. Here is our version of the Grand Ole' Duke of York!
The sun and warmth seems to have brought out all the animals as well. We fed the ducks, were chased by squirrels, got friendly with the pigeons and saw some pretty birds.
We found the energy to go "wee" up and down the "hill" and then found some big sticks to amuse ourselves!
Isn't it nice when an idea actually turns out to have been a good one!
