The one with a summer picnic.


August was quite a stressful month so it was nice to start September with a picnic! The kids and I love picnics and we live in such a beautiful area, there are plenty of pretty, peaceful places to actually have a nice picnic! We packed the picnic up in our new picnic hamper which was kindly sent to me to review. We took a football with us, too and away we went! Walking through the woods to the beautiful meadow on the other side is our favourite spot! There's plenty of space for the kids to run around and burn off energy and it's so very peaceful.

This is a lovely spot where me and my brothers and sisters use to play as kids, it's really lovely to be able to create memories, in the same place, with my own children.

After our picnic, the kids had a kick around with the ball and rolled down the hill, which was great fun for them, hehe.

We had a wonderful afternoon, the weather was perfect and thankfully not TOO hot! Walking back through the woods I managed to capture this picture below (on my phone!) of the lake in the woods, isn't it beautiful?

Maybe we'll be able to squeeze in a couple more picnics before the cooler weather hits us! I hope you've been enjoying the weather, too :)
How has your summer been?
