I'm more than aware that staying in and having the tv on all the time probably isn't very good for the wee one. Hence, vowing to go out more. She got a little push along bike for her Christmas, and we've been desperate to try it out, but it really never has been a dry enough day. Wednesday appeared dry enough, so we ventured out down the path outside the house.
It wasn't long before the clouds came, and the drizzle started, so we reluctantly went back indoors.
Yesterday, however, was a much brighter, drier day. We met up with a friend and her little boy up at the loch and took the bike up there. Even in the middle of summer it's always a wee bit colder at the log, but man it was freezing! Usually a brisk walk round the loch really warms you up, but with two toddlers and their bikes and scooters in tow, it was a slow trudge.
I always feel like I'm depriving the wee one of fresh air, as we never go anywhere that outdoorsy, so thats why I love going round the park. It really is one of my favourite places, and the little play park is great for the wee ones. The kids had fun on the swings, and the seesaw, and running about daft chasing ducks at the loch side. Before we knew it two and a half hours had passed. We had quick bite to eat in the cafe, before heading home, and the wee one wanted back on her bike as we went to the car.
