Today we decided to give our weekly swimming lessons a miss in favour of some sunshine and a walk around the lake. It's been such beautiful sunny weather here lately and being outside in it all makes me feel much better. We are very fortunate to live so close to such a wonderful place (pity I don't take advantage of it more often!)
We took our bikes to ride around on. Jacob decided to ride off on me right from the start. I am sure he was about a km ahead of me at one stage and I just couldn't catch him (little girls on bikes you have to push along with your feet do not go very fast ;)) I am not usually a neurotic mother but I did get a tad concerned when he disappeared out of my sight - especially when there is a huge lake nearby. Luckily, some kind passerbys noticed that I was looking a little worried and turned him round to ride back to me - phew!
There's so many things for the kids to do at the lake.
There's ducks to watch
Bikes to ride
Piles of stones to climb
Bubbling creeks to watch
Big rocks to conquer
And water fountains to play with!
All in all, a beautiful morning in the sunshine was had! We ended up very wet and muddy - a sure sign that the kids had fun!
