Outdoor Family Fun

With the weather being so beautiful over the past few days, we have enjoyed lots of time outdoors in the sunshine. Not only only is spending time outside in the fresh air beneficial in terms of your health and fitness but it's a great way to reduce stress... which some of us parents may be suffering from now the summer holidays have arrived!

We have taught the Mini Mes how to play rugby properly with an official HSBC Lions ball...

We had a BBQ at my mums (which also involved assembling the BBQ and cooking everything for her) and drank lemonade from wine glasses. Because we can...

We walked the dog a lot further through woodland and fields...

and Minxy sat in a cardboard box, strapped to a skateboard and rolled down the garden while dressed as Iron Man...

As you do!

What outdoor fun have you had as a family this week?



  1. I love the cardboard box. Give kids a box and they can be so inventive! Be sure to join me for Country Kids tomorrow.

    1. Lovely to have you over at Country Kids, thanks for joining in.

  2. We went to a family festival last weekend, one of the things they had for a kids was a field full of huge cardboard boxes that they could decorate and turn into spaceships, cars.. houses. It was fabulous!

  3. hahaha! I love the last photo Minxy in the cardboard box! Fab!!

  4. This looks like great fun. They love cardboard boxes don't they x

  5. this sounds like great fun! do they do iron man costumes in my size? thanks for linking up your fab time with #Magicmoments x

  6. I love BBQs but I can't believe we've not had chance to have one yet. Z can play for ages in an empty box. I'm always tempted to let him just sit in it for a whole :)

  7. What a great post. My boys too love boxes. They usually cut them up to make something :) Great pictures xx


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. We love to hear your thoughts - feel free to pop a comment in the box!
