She was squealing with unadulterated glee at every push, probably the only time my teeth weren't chattering was when I was laughing along with her at her enjoyment of the swings. There is nothing quite so warming to the heart as the laughter of your children - which is especially useful when it is brass monkeys outside!
We enjoyed a simple packed lunch of E's favourite things (including her Nutella sandwiches with the "crust-is" cut off) but it was too chilly to sit down for too long, so we were up and back on the equipment again as quick as we could. Climbing through tunnels, flying down slides, zipping along on the flying fox, it was lots of fun & we had a really good time in spite of the cold.
The only shame is that the park is looking quite run down these days, everything could do with a lick of paint & there are one or two pieces of equipment that could do with some fixing up. It's a lovely little park and I think with some TLC it would be even better. Regardless, we'll definitely be visiting it lots throughout the Spring & Summer and we are looking forward to spending lots more time outside now that the warmer weather is on its way (or at least hopefully will be soon!), we may even look into getting E her own swingset for the garden since she enjoys it so much.
Roll on Springtime!
