There is something so beautiful about each season and I made the decision when I had children to stop having a favourite, and to appreciate the little things each time the weather changes. The excitement of snow and frost has gone, Christmas feels like a distant memory and it has all been replaced by blooming flowers popping up everywhere we look, the grass turning a healthier shade of green and that familiar warmth that promises summer is on the way.
I am an outdoor person whatever the weather, but with four small ones some things are just a bit much in the winter. In the spring it all seems a bit easier, there are so many options, so much to explore and it becomes easier to go out earlier and stay out that little bit later.
Last weekend in the absense of any plans, we revisited a beautiful local gardens with a museum attached. We are lucky enough to have lots of local parks, but this one is so clean, dog free and full of things to explore. I took my camera along to capture some pictures of the bigger boys in their new shoes as Bobux kindly sent us some of their new Kid+ range (they now go up to 7 years!) and I love the images I took. They capture spring in all it's beautiful glory and the adventures we will be having for the next few months.
The boys love their Bobux shoes because the barefoot soles mean they can really flex their feet as they run and climb. There are some low hanging branches and trees that are perfect for little adventurers and they kept them entertained for ages.
Inside there is a museum full of animals and artifacts that they love looking at. The highlight is the interactive room though full of instruments to play and stations to draw at complete with mircrosopes and fancy lights. (If you live locally this is Quex gardens and Museum). It was a great place to calm down before heading home and there was something for everyone.
The weather still seems to vary so much daily and there is still plenty of rain but this is what our Spring weekends will look like I hope - full of colour, sunshine and fresh air.
