The Great Outdoors

This week has been a little quieter for us, as for a large part of it I've been poorly! So this week the monkeys have spent more time playing, (and fighting) indoors and we've been out and about much less. We did, however manage a couple of trips out, when I was feeling OK. 

Sunday Daddy, the monkeys and I took a drive to the coast, late afternoon. We decided to go to Walton on the Naze as we'd not been there in a while. The monkeys were keen to build sand castles on the beach, so we took buckets and spades BUT when we got there, the tide was in! No matter, we said, lets get tea, then see if the tide is going out. Low and behold, after sitting in a fish and chip shop and all eating our food, the tide had indeed started to go back out, so the boys had a great time digging in the sand, building castles and knocking them down again!
Little monkey was a bit young last time we went to build sandcastles, so he had great fun exploring the beach.
It was a little chilly, and pretty breezy but out of the shade we still managed to feel the last of the days sun. Big monkey loved his GB flag!
I really can't remember too much about Monday and Tuesday, excpect for going to the Doctors and having to have a nap both day's but on Wednesday, we managed a class meet up at Hylands Park. We had a picnic in the children's play area, which consists of a very large and very fab wooden adventure playground and after a few hours, Daddy came and joined us.
Once we'd said goodbye to big monkeys class mates, we set off to find drinks and ice-cream and chill out in the gardens. They are really fab. The monkeys explored with daddy and saw the fish in the pond and the ducks on the lake, whilst I sat and rested! Little monkey, as you can see tried his hardest to get onto the flower beds!
Thursday was another fairly quiet day, but whilst daddy was at work I took the monkeys to the local children's play area, where big monkey and I kicked the ball about a bit.
Little monkey had a swing and both of them were in fits playing with the ball on the climbing frame! Big monkey even managed to use the monkey bars successfully! He is so pleased with himself!
It's only around the corner from us, so ideal for a quick pit stop and play, to get out in the great outdoors and make the most of the beautiful weather we have been having!
I hope you like our photo's of this week in bite sized chunks?
