As a family, we love to get out and about exercising the boys and dog. We’ve had our share of theme parks and local attractions, finally admitting that there’s actually nothing nicer than a country walk and time to chat. It keeps all parties happy and saves a packet too.
With that in mind, and an extra hound to walk this weekend, we kept local deciding on a back route from Beer to Branscombe walk. So with camera hung round my neck, Baby R in the sling and Tween inseparable from his favourite rugby ball we set off.
It’s moments like these that I can see just how similar Hubby and Tween are, realising only after I was looking through these photos, that Hubby and Tween were sporting the same pose, stride and hoodies wrapped around their waists. Like father, like son so the saying goes.
Without the wi-fi and Xbox to complete with, Tween and I revert back to our little chit chats. topic of conversation were Batman, where he’s going to live when he grows up and how many dogs he’s going to own. He definitely follows in my verbal footsteps rather than Hubby’s!
I finally got round to buying a ball pump so Tween could inflate the rugby ball he got for Christmas so, like all new toys he gets, the ball has come everywhere with us the weekend. I’m pretty impressed he’s persevered for 4 months with a flat one. I love this photo as it captures the simplest of childhood moments, throwing a ball as high as you can.
As the wind picked up Hubby got into his protective alpha male mode wrapping his jacket around Baby R and pulling their hoods up. These two often take off on long dog walks at the weekend leaving me home to get on with
writing my blog doing the housework. I never set out to take on the real little housewife thing but with three boys in the house and a dog, there’s a never-ending list of chores to keep up with and it’s easier without Baby R clinging off the hoover.
Before we knew it we were back home with tired children, calm dogs and aching feet, where everyone resumed their positions at the TV, Xbox or laptop. It was so nice to be screen free, if only for a few hours.
