Blue skies in winter.00:00
The kids have been stuck in all over Christmas so when we woke up one morning to beautiful blue skies without a cloud in sight, we decided we'd go to the park! The weather was very mild, I didn't even need to wear my coat. The kids also took there coats off as they were running around playing football and playing with remote control cars. Shame the weather didn't stay like that for long though. I am so glad I told them to wear old clothes as they did get a little muddy, I don't mind that I just didn't want there good clothes ruined.
I decided to take some photos on my new camera that I got for Christmas.I am still figuring out all the settings, for a digital camera, it's quite confusing but I love it so much. I know the focus and colouring is out on some of these pics but for my first attempt at using the camera, I don't think they came out too bad at all.
Charlie took his remote control car out that he got for Christmas! There's a skate ramp over the park we went to and he couldn't wait to test his remote control car out there.
Charlie told me "This is epic and the car even flips over on it's own". He really enjoyed testing his car out on the ramp.
Harry had already arranged to meet a couple of his friends over the park while we were there. He wanted to play football and use his new goalie gloves, you see. Harry is all about football, he can not get enough of it! It's also really hard to get a photo of Harry but I did manage to snap these couple of pics!
Ellie just wanted to ride her bike, which she got for her Birthday back in September but hasn't been out on it that much because the weather hasn't been great. She is so good at riding it now! She does have a crash helmet but the clip thing "broke" when we were half way to the park, I managed to fix it at the park (after I took these snaps, so please don't worry, she DOES wear a crash helmet)
We had a lovely afternoon at the park and I am hoping the weather picks up again soon! I don't mind winter but we are all outdoorsy people in this household and we miss being able to go to the park and for walks in the woodland but with this wind and rain, it's just visible.
