More fresh air!

Wow.... we can really tell spring is getting closer. We were blessed to have more dry weather today, this morning was glorious sunshine but J was still in nursery until lunch. Then after deciding we were going out, the clouds came over. We still made the most of it though, and headed to 3 sisters country park, near Wigan. Its a little trek from Warrington, but still one of my favourite parks, it has everything you need. Free car parking, Duck pond, various walks of different sizes, not to muddy, toilets, and a decent park. Perfect for family fun.
The journey there was fun, with J having a full blown tantrum, she always seems to have more tantrums after nursery, compared to days when she doesn't have nursery.

When we arrived, J was like a different child, and the tantrum disappeared. Our first stop was to the ducks, where the swans seem to have multiplied massively since our last trip here. Another loaf of bread each for the girls, and they were happy for 15minutes. (Cant grumble at 55p a loaf!) The girls were even getting brave and trying to feed them directly, the ducks, geese and swans are much calmer here compared to Pennington Flash the other day.

 S even managed to get her stick addiction sorted whilst J finished the bread off.

After the swans, we had a quick look at the map... yes another map... they sure like the maps,
 Then we were on our walk, we chose the middle length walk today, around the race track, up and down some hills, so J could get more practice gliding. We also let S go in her trike, as she's too short for her balance bike, and is climbing out of the buggy more and more. She stayed put in the trike though.

On our walk, we stopped to admire some of the scenery, and point our winter hill to J and S. Then S decided she'd rather walk, and run along side J.
S even stopped to pick up her phone, and held a full blown conversation with an imaginary friend, all well and good but J hadn't realised, and was off into the distance
We then returned back to the park, for a quick go on the swings and roundabout, where S got so dizzy, she kept falling over, it then decided to start raining, so it was time to head home.

  1. Kids really do love maps! I think the ones at parks and places tend to be very visual, they don't want to think they're missing out :)
    Mine are always stroppier after nursery too - tiredness is a pain and it's always us they take it out on :D

  2. Looks like a fab afternoon! Love the photos with the ducks and swans and the shot with the very important phone call :) #CountryKids

  3. What brave little girls feeding all those swans and geese! The park looks perfect for a family outing and a chance for the girls to bike along and have fun. Thanks for linking up and sharing your lovely photos with Country Kids.
