I’m a little late with this post this week – the long weekend has put me all out of sync. Actually though the main reason is that I fell asleep when I was putting Toby to bed last night so I didn’t get round to getting my computer out!
Last week’s sun seems to have mostly disappeared this week and we’ve had a pretty quiet Easter weekend. Last Monday though we met my friend Claire and her twins at a park near Warrington (we do a lot of meeting in Warrington as it’s about half way between our houses). It was very busy with it being the school holidays but we found a quiet spot to have a picnic and the boys all had fun running around.
Gabe is a funny little character sometimes. At home he will scream blue murder if I dare leave him in the living room for two minutes to go to the loo but when we’re out anywhere he is off without a backward glance! He loved running around with the bigger boys – he always wants to copy everything that Toby does. Hopefully as he gets a bit bigger some of that independence that he shows when we’re out and about will also start to appear at home too.
Today we went up to the Lake District to follow one of the Forestry Commission Gruffalo trails. It was busy as you would expect but Toby absolutely loved following all the clues and finding the characters from the book. I’m planning on a whole post about it soon but if you have one nearby then I would definitely recommend it.
