I usually work long days on Thursday leaving before everyone gets up and home before they are all in bed so when I got home early last Thursday I knew I wanted to go for a little walk with my little monkeys. When I got home I have never seen them so pleased, was such a surprise for them and was nice to see the response my husband gets every time he gets home from work.
So after a lot of chasing and encouragement we finally got out and I am so glad we had. The weather was getting a bit chilly but not so that you needed a coat. The sun has just set and there were the last bits of light before we were plunged into darkness. Moving to a new area we still have not found somewhere the kids can let loose like in our old town. There we had hills and sandy beaches not that I am complaining I love the beach regardless. We decided to walk along the prom Pants on his bike, Ami with her dolls pushchair and Little Bear being the most sensible in the pushchair.
We had a lovely little walk although we were attacked by swarms of flies and mosquitoes. The bigger ones enjoyed exploring the environment and my eldest was pleased to find a quilt in a whole. Rather random I took them away quickly. The ran ahead and Little bear toddled behind and when our tummies rumbled and it was time for dinner. Although Ami did not want to she stripped her coat of and sat on the floor wanting to stay out.
It was a lovely end to a usually working day.
What a lovely post, it's great that you got to get home early and spend some extra time with them and experience the feeling of walking in and them all being excited to see you. I feel that impromptu family time is sometimes better than planned as everyone is actually in the mood to get up and go. Thanks for sharing with me on Country Kids.ReplyDelete

It's SO nice to get out and about — especially after a busy day. It would be all too easy to slump in front of the TV or tackle household chores when we finish work but sometimes getting some fresh air is the best tonic of all :) #sundayroundupReplyDelete
