A Breath of Fresh Air

We had planned to take the boys to the park after school on Friday afternoon, but discovering they both had chickenpox Thursday morning means we have to keep them home from school.

Knowing they were both soon to be feeling awful, itchy and just plain old pain in the butts whilst they deal with the pox we decided to head out to the park whilst it was sunny and quiet so they could have a run about before being stuck indoors.

They had oodles of fun in the play park, thankfully there were no other kids around so they got to keep all their poxy germs to themselves.

Umm can you tell they dressed themselves?

The blue skies and mild temperature made a welcomed change.

They spin so fast on these things that Ahren legs go flying out to the side!

He loves his mama, Ethan does too, but he was having a nap.

As much fun as it is chasing the kids around the park I couldn’t help but go and gather a few flowers. The dish we’d picked up from Lakeland was the perfect container!

Alas, they soon got tired and we headed home, looks like the pox is kicking in hard, so this impromptu trip out came just in time, we shall be housebound for a while.

    Every cloud has a silver lining, the pox looks like it gave you a lovely chance to get outside with them, I did exactly the same with mine, I remember when they were pickled putting them all in the bike chariot and cycling them down the local trail just for some fresh air for me as much as them! I love your flowers too, a real sign of spring to come. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids and I hope they are both past the worst of their pox now.

  7. We've been LOVING the recent blue skies too. I adore that swan pic.I remember taking Aaron out when he was two with Chicken Pox. He looked like fancy dress as he had so much white on his face. I think it was Calomine Lotion or something. Anyhow I am glad he had it back then as it's been rampaging through his Reception class at school for the last 4 weeks. There was a fortnight where only 12 out of 27 kids were in. Crazy. Hope they're okay now. And yes, Fresh Air does indeed impoverish the Dr. I watched a lady on BBC1 recently. She was in and out of the hospital all the time, then she got a Guide Dog which means she got her mobility. Just that and fresh air means she hasn't been to hospital for TEN years. Amazing xx
