With you arrives many changes and with you came a new adventure . A wee man with admirable determination testing new grounds. Yet with all the sunshine for new growth you also need a bit of rain. The wee man has had to work through his fair share of frustrations. He wants to do it all by himself but still needs a little bit of help.
New growth needs a little bit of everything and you have reminded us of that. It can't always be his way and we are learning to work through the tantrums and tears. Yet with each hurdle comes proud moments. It's been learning about balance and choosing wisely our battles.
Your longer days have brought us lighter feelings. Special cuddles and I love yous. Now the wee man always wants to spend time with friends and fun means playing with others. Longer days means more time outdoors and a time where we can step back, watch and admire. It's about taking new risks and facing fears.
What can I say Spring you have opened doors to new discoveries. I'm joining in with Older Mum (In A Muddle) and her beautiful seasonal linky One Week. A few words and photographs reflecting our experience of Spring 2014
This week we took advantage of some nice weather and headed to Drumpellier Country Park only a 20 minute drive from Glasgow. There is a nice Loch which attracts the local birds and is just perfect for throwing stones and clambering over rocks with a paved path for the balance bike. There are two play parks. We slowly made our way to the first which though with dated equipment was actually perfect for the wee man's new found climbing skills. We then got distracted by the swans and accumulated a rather large collection of sticks. Woodland walks also veer off the main path but we never had the time to explore. We eventually made it to the second more popular play park to spend time digging in the sand, driving the train and having fun on the flying fox. It was a pleasant morning out and a change from our local.
