Sunshine and Family Time

Gosh, the weather has been beautiful this week hasn't it? We've been very lucky having wall to wall sunshine for a few days in a row, and it has definitely made it easier to keep the Wee One entertained.  I happened to be off work yesterday, and instead of sticking to playing out in the back garden, the Wee One and I headed up to Calderglen Park for the morning. Their little zoo is perfect for amusing young kids in the smashing weather, but their gardens are glorious to sit in too. 

As if spending the morning running around the park didn't give us enough fresh air, when the Husband came home from work we jumped in the car and headed down the coast to Troon Beach. It's amazing that 40 minutes drive down the coast can give you this view: 

This was the first time we've taken the Wee One to the beach. She wasn't too convinced by the sand at first, but I think that was just because she'd fallen asleep in the car on the way down and she'd woken up grumpy. But it didn't take too long before she was paddling away in the water with her daddy. 

The view in Troon is absolutely gorgeous. I could happily sit at the sea and gaze out into the water all day long. It's so pretty. 

The sea air certainly makes you weary, but the wee one seemed full of energy and spotted a bouncy castle, on which she spent about forty five minutes bouncing away quite happily (not bad for £1.50 a shot!).  We only stayed for a couple hours before heading home, but not before taking the obligatory family selfie:


  1. A full day of great fun in the sunshine. Troon beach looks gorgeous with great sand for children to enjoy playing with. Love the family selfie, thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

  2. I live by the beach and yet I am still in awe when I saw beach photos! The weather is really nice to enjoy the outdoors! #countrykids
