Playing nerf wars in the garden!00:00
Now the nights are getting darker earlier and the weather is getting cooler faster, we thought we would make the most of the early evening! The kids really wanted to get there nerf guns out (which they have received as Xmas presents/Birthday presents over the last couple of years) and play with them. I think nerf guns are best played outdoors and with supervision. Last year, I almost got hit in the eye with a nerf bullet so I have told the kids to point them low and not aim at people! Which they do and it is SO much fun trying to dodge and run away from them. A couple of the boys friends came around with there nerf guns too (they live next door and a few doors up from us). So they had a nice mix of toys to swap and use. It's nice to see them actually play with there toys for once!
It's a great way for the kids to burn energy and after half an hour they were all ready to come in for a bath and get ready for bed! These Autumn evenings are exhausting apparently.
I love this time of year and I am so glad the kids are making the most of playing out doors while its still nice out! I enjoyed sitting out there watching (supervising!) them enjoy themselves, it was fun!
I was also soaking up this beautiful sky view!
