The Perfect Picnic.


Last week was half term. We had some amazing weather, which we  thoroughly enjoyed! The sun was shining and it was quite hot, I'm not a huge fan of really hot weather so finding some shade seemed like a good idea to me! We went for a lovely picnic to a fairly local park with plenty of shade but also lots of sunshine, too! The kids enjoyed playing in the sun (they were smothered in sun screen) whilst I sat in the sun and watched!

We packed egg and ham sandwiches, mini sausages, scotch eggs sausage rolls, cakes, cookies and some fruit etc! We spent a couple of hours at the park eating and playing and just chatting, enjoying the weather before walking along the river to get a well needed ice cream!
(My memory card has literally just broke on me, and I can't retrieve the photos NOOOOO!!! - along with many others - so I'll have to just post the photos I took on my phone. I'm trying to figure it out. WHY didn't I back them up straight away?!)

We're hoping to get out for an after school picnic sometime this week, we'll see how the weather goes though! Not long until the summer holidays, who's excited?! We are!!

How have you been enjoying the weather lately?

  1. We went to the park when the weather was hot and also to a set of dirt jumps for bmx and mountain bikes. Shopping indoors at the mall as well and a few meals out was nice. Your picnic sounds lovely, wish I'd thought of doing that! #TriumphantTales

  2. Oh the weather was just delicious wasn't it, and yet today we were thrust back into winter! Fingers crossed it picks up again so you can have another picnic. I keep thinking that I need to take Zach for one! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

  3. You can't beat a good picnic, I haven't had one in ages but I love making up all the snacks x

  4. We love picnics!!! Unfortunately, we also all suffer from hayfever, but we try to do it but not too often, we have had a few BBQ's which is great in this nice weather! #TwinklyTuesday

  9. What a lovely happy post with lovely photos of your day out in the park. Half term was a great break and only 6 weeks till the summer hols! Let's hope for fab weather again - not looking so good at the moment! #sharewithme

  10. What a perfect looking picnic and a great way to enjoy the lovely half term sunshine. I'm not sure what hapenned the week after though, we've had more than our fair share of rain and I'm more than ready for the sun again now. Like you we always take a ball out with us, it is the simple pleasures of space and a ball that will keep kids going for hours. I hope you sort your camera out, though I must say your phone pictures are lovely.
