Park Life {The Ordinary Moments}

Ever since Moo could get herself onto a slide or be pushed in a swing, she fell in love. There is nothing that makes my little girl happier than being in a park. She is obsessed with slides. If we say we are going to our local small village park she will want to take her trusty friend Flopsy, so she too can enjoy the swings and slides, dropping her from a great height first and then following her down.

Lately she has managed to practice and learn how to swing herself on an adult size swing, but when she does not feel like being independent thats when mummy or daddy step in and give her a little push.


Last weekend we went to a different park, a lot bigger than the normal village park. She loved it, especially the swing, declaring to go higher and higher! I love seeing her reaction. She was in fits of giggles the whole time. Thor wanted to go just as high, but I was a bit wary of him leaning over as he tends to hang out of his swing!

Ordinary moments like this I love, the tiniest of things that little people love, that make them so happy. Moo would and could spend her whole day in a park (I am not sure that is very ordinary!) But I love the fact she loves them so much. She always gets so excited about going to one. I love the innocence of little people.

I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments

    My boys are obsessed with swings too but just aren’t interested in mastering how to swing themselves! I spent the entire summer holidays pushing them on the swings in our garden. I feel like I’ve built up some serious muscles! Looks like you did too with how high she was going (bet she was shouting to go higher and higher still though if she’s anything like my boys!) x

      She most certainly was! I bet you have your hands full with twin boys! Thanks for popping by x

    She’s going very high on that swing! Mads loves parks too but recently has developed more of a fear of things, and as such is a little bit frightened by slides! x

      Oh bless! My little boy is scared of slides too, once he has been down them he is ok with them, but its normally 5 minutes before we are about to leave he decides he wants to give them a go! Moo was going rater high! It sent shivers down my spine! She loved it so I couldn’t exactly stop! I think as parents you know the limits 😉
