Summer Fun

Today was a fantastic day. 

Sun, the great outdoors and energy from a little lye in!

Some days I find being a parent so hard.

Some days I just want to curl up and block out the world.

Some days it feels so much harder to put three little peoples needs before own. 

Today was not one of those days. 

Today was a day where all of those ‘some days’ that are a struggle, are lonely and full of frustration make THIS day that bit more glorious, relaxing and content. 

We are so lucky where we live there is always lots on for families.

We took the vintage bus that is running this summer holiday, a short walk from our house, up to a local deer park. 

The boys loved the double decker bus and we got to sit at the front up top. 

The bus ride only cost us £2.50 and it cost us nothing to enter the deer park. The boys loved the outdoors, climbing trees and finding sticks.

We made a den and I have to say I’m pretty proud of it! We found bugs and beech nuts and made little homes for the bugs it was awesome! 

Simple days like this are like therapy for me. It was just what I needed and the boys had a great time too.

I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
