Facing the elements


So the weather has made a lovely u-turn to wintery times. Rain, sleet and snow. My being excited for an afternoon of sunshine was dashed quickly to the curb when the wee man came home early from nursery with a high temperature. Thankfully whatever it was quickly faded and we were able to make our Stirling play date on Friday but that afternoon sunshine had other ideas and never showed it's face again. With two over excited children who both had refused to have afternoon naps were two mummies who would do anything to wear them out a little bit. The usual crowded Kings's Park in Stirling was empty. Nothing better than having so much space to yourself.




They did not have to fight with anyone to use the equipment except maybe each other. 




The bad weather does not stop them from having fun. Wrap up warm and face the elements.

  1. We lived in Denmark for two years before here, they have a saying that goes something like "there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing"... Lovely pictures as usual! :)

  4. We are the first ones to be out in all weathers, but yesterday we never got out of the car other than for swimming and the supermarket and today we have not left the house.

    It is too cold even for me.

    Sorry for letting Team Outdoors down ;-)

    1. I love his snowsuit. It's great for mud and dirt as well. Whenever he plops himself down I don't have to worry :)

  6. I couldn't agree more, not only were they wrapped up but also managed to have the park to themselves. The Wee Man looked like he was having a great time. Thanks for linking to Country Kids.

  12. I need to do this - get out more irrespective of the weather - as you say, they don't care, as long as they're wrapped up - it's me that hates being cold :) Fantastic photos - and it's always great when they get the park to themselves!

    1. I did feel a bit sorry for him at some points with the wind and hail and him covering his eyes but they really do enjoy it in the end. Just wished he would keep his gloves on too! I was well layered trust me!
