We were up and out early this Saturday morning to ensure that we could enjoy the day as much as possible. We headed off to Castle Espie and it was wonderful. We had lots of fun exploring, puddle jumping, looking at the views, enjoying the birds and all of the things Castle Espie had to offer.
Here are a few of the pictures I captured while we were out & about.
I haven’t joined this linky in a little while, I’ve been rather bad to my blog and not shown it much love this year yet.
Starting from today I plan to get back to the usual amount of blogging & social media presence.
Here are some pictures from my walk at Mount Stewart last week with my hubby & son.
Hope you have had a good week & hope to chat to you soon! =]
This week we have gone for several walks, explored a few different parks and Amellia has learnt how to ride her bike without stabilisers in two days!
One very proud mummy & daddy, and one very excited little girl to get a bigger pretty bike!
Here she is when we first took her stabilizers off with her daddy by her side to help her keep balanced and build up her confidence.. She was in fits of giggles the majority of the time, but she was getting so close! The next day she did it! =D
Here is Dylan enjoying the swing while she went off and practiced on her bike! He loves swings and would stay on them all day!
How was your week?
Are you having a lovely time this summer? =]
This week we have spent a lot of time enjoying beautiful beaches around us!
Amellia went down to visit my mum & dad for a few days so I took Dylan along to the beach alone so that he could play in the sand and if he hated it we could leave straight away without feeling guilty that Amellia hadn’t had a chance to play. He loved it!
Seeing as he really enjoyed it I decided that I would take them both to the beach together to play.. typically Dylan fell asleep in his pram walking to the beach! Amellia still had a lovely time playing with the waves, etc! =]
How was your week? =]
This week we have been doing a few different things!
We popped over too see my lovely sister in her new work place- Indie Fude. It is a fantastic little shop with lots of wonderful food and treats all locally sourced! We grabbed some make your own pizzas and a few other bits for treats afterwards! Amellia really enjoyed the Aunt Sandras honeycomb and says it is the best she has ever had!
She made a heart shape pizza and couldn’t wait to tuck in! She loved it!
When we were visiting my sister we grabbed a very tasty chippy and Amellia just had to have a slushie she loves those things! I can’t get over how grown up she looks in this picture!
Another day we went for a lovely walk around Crawfordsburn country Park and had fun running about in the wild flower meadow!
Our much loved fish Pudge got a new tank as he has nearly doubled in size since we got him and is forever growing! Suitably named after the fish in Lilo & Stitch too! =D
Dylan really enjoyed wearing his sisters hat! He looked like such a cutie in it! She didn’t mind at all, this whole being off for summer thing has really helped their relationship! =D
How has your week been?
I started my week by taking Dylan to the farm that is just a five-minute drive up the road from me! Ok, I know this photo doesn’t show him with the animals.. but; look how happy he was on the giant slide!
Later on in the week we went to Mount Stewart again to visit the ducks and see how big the lovely cygnets had got! This time we took some seed so they were very happy to see us and Dylan spent a long time watching them eat! The cygnets seem to be a lot bigger now!
On Friday I was feeling pretty lonely, and had a lot running through my mind so I decided to get out my guitar and give it some much-needed love!
How has you week been? =]
