We had a bouncy castle for the week last week and this meant that the kids were reluctant to leave the house. Why go anywhere when you can bounce to your hearts content in the garden at home? This did mean that mum had a little cabin fever though as well as a pounding headache. With much persuasion I got them out of the house with a promise of a trip to the park.
They played on the swings and roundabouts for a while, but my headache was getting worse so I asked them to come for a walk. They wasn’t happy, but I saw a stream up ahead and a bridge so I got them to come along to play pooh sticks.
It wasn’t long before they asked if they could get in the stream. It was a warm day and the stream was very shallow so I agreed. We were there for an hour, they loved it. They found some little fish and lots of interesting stones and even went for a walk upstream. Then a man came along with his little dog who was splashing in the water looking for stones for the kids to throw for him. Sadly, I don’t have any photos of the dog as my phone battery died.
When it was time to leave my headache had lifted and the kids were ready to go home and bounce again.
