A cosy afternoon snuggled up by the fire or romping through the woods, those seem to be only acceptable ways to spend a weekend this time of year.
We opted for a romp through Oxleas Woods on a recent visit to nannie and doopa, turns out being stuck in a car for 2 hours and copious amounts of chocolate give children all the hyper feels for a few days. Running off the crazy in the woods was very much needed!
I love that other than telling the kids not to do anything too stupid you can pretty much leave them to do their own thing when in the woods, their imaginations run riot and they find their own fun and entertainment
I’m always amazed at the open spaces we have in London, such a blessing.
They had so much fun…
from the crazy excitement of climbing a tree stump…
to crawling along felled trees…
to the giddy joy that can only be found in throwing crunchy leaves
They were full of smiles!
They really enjoyed stumbling across this old water tank.
I almost pee’d myself laughing when I saw what was tagged on the tree behind them!
Not sure why anyone would want to tag a bunch of trees, but there were a whole bunch of trees tagged with the same word, my immature humour found it hilarious, especially when the boys saw the words and ran off screaming “AAARRRGHHHHH COCKS”.
Yes, I know, I’m very immature.
After all that excitement we decided to head home; the boys were suitably knackered and we’d all had a laugh, a rather lovely afternoon was had.
