#LivingArrows – Awesome Autumn 42/53 (2018)

It’s been a funny few days, the weather has yo-yo’d from torrential rain to bright and beautiful. After almost twenty-four hours of none-stop, heavy rain the kids were about to go stir crazy. There are only so many board games that you can play , books that you can read, movies that you can watch and crafts that you can do before four-wall fever sets in.

We spent the entire of Saturday cooped up in the house, watching the pouring rain, whilst trying to keep ourselves entertained. Twenty-four hours later, the rain had stopped, the sun was shining and you’d never believe that less than a day before most of the local roads had been shut due to severe flooding.

We wasted no time in getting out and about, the kids were desperate to spend some time outdoors and to be free from the confines of the house. It was lovely to watch them as they ran around the park, the trills of their laughter echoing across the park as they played together on the swings, the slide, the climbing frames, the rickety old rocking-rocket ship and their personal highlight, the zip-wire.

Whilst on our way back from the park I decided to take a few pictures to mark the moment. What had been a wet, windy and weary weekend suddenly transformed into an awesome, autumnal afternoon spent enjoying time together as a family.

    Sounds like our weather last weekend too – it poured down all day on Saturday but most of Sunday was beautiful! Glad you all enjoyed the park 🙂 #LivingArrows

    The weather has been so changeable hasn’t it? We have been getting out of the house every moment when the rain stops! x
