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? =]
During this lovely weather, we have been getting out for lots of walks and enjoying ourselves. One of my favorite walks was when I took the kids to Crawfordsburn beach and we walked along to Helens bay and played in the sand and the sea!
While we were walking along towards the beach Amellia decided that she would like to push Dylan in his pram! Its was very hilly and it’s pretty hard to push a pram when you can’t see over the top of so I gave her a little hand. As she was pushing him along with we had a little chat and she told me that she wanted to practice taking him for walks in his pram now so that she could take him out when she is a teen!
How cute does she look pushing the pram! ❤
We then got to the beach and thankfully Dylans prams has nice big wheels so pushes wonderfully over the wet sand! The sea had just gone out so the sand was perfect and Dylan was happily napping in his pram. This meant that Amellia got to really enjoy the beach, play with the waves, make Rapunzel and hunt around in the seaweed without having to worry about leaving if he woke up in a bad mood.
We had such a wonderful time and it felt like some good old mummy daughter time too with Dylan fast asleep and Amellia having lots of fun, chasing her about the beach and helping her to build her Rapunzel!
It was a lovely day and will be a fond memory for us both!
Hope you are all enjoying your summer time, what have you been up too?!
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? =]
