At last, a weekend where the sun was shining and we were all germ free! It was absolutely wonderful to head out for a lovely walk and play in the fresh air. Freddy donned his wellies and made the most of the weather as he climbed, ran, slid and jumped to his heart's content. I hadn't realised just how much I have missed the great outdoors, and we fully intend on making the most of all the local places we are lucky enough to live near.
Today's adventure was to Bridgemere, which includes Britain's largest Garden Centre and covers 50 acres of land on the Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire borders. There are extensive gardens to explore which have lovely play areas for the kids to enjoy. There is also a restaurant, a cafe with a soft play area and some great shops. Freddy was delighted to spot one of his friends from school and had a lovely play with him in the indoor play area while we enjoyed a nice hot drink. It's lovely to see him so sociable and joining in with the other kids. He used to be so shy and reserved, now he gets stuck in and makes new friends wherever he goes. It reminds me just how far he has come!
Hopefully we will see many more lovely weekends where we can enjoy many more lovely family days out.
