DD1 lives a two minute walk from the park. The twins wanted to take their scooters and Spud and Ziggy decided to take the scuttlebugs. So we decide to go round the park the long way rather than taking one side of the square we went round three sides. But half way round they decided to head off across the grass. Unfortunately Spud could not manage the scuttlebug on the grass and abandoned it as Fifi was helping Ziggy with hers.
Dinky has never been the most adventurous child and was excited to show me she could go up the big slide. She will be five next month but only started going up it this week.
On the other hand Spud has been following Minky up there since she was about 18 months old.
So having them all with us means we had the older ones to help with the younger ones.
All of them like to use the bigger swings but the rule we have is you can only go as high as you can push yourself
Though Ziggy did ask to go " up the sky" and the answer was no top her as well.
Dinky has also started venturing up the ropes as well, does not quite make it to the top but higher than she use to go.
Proud of herself when she kept going up.
Fifi was amusing the two younger ones but nearly fell off backwards at one point as she is bigger then them and unbalanced the spring wobble roundabout.
Minky on the other hand was having lots of fun playing on the rest of the pieces of equipment and must have gone down the fireman's pole dozens of times. A few times he did mange not to get the best hold and slide down rather quickly.
Dinky was quite happy to play at Ziggy's level. She is a much younger two than Spud and it notices when you have them together. But then Spud has older siblings to learn from and copy.
Dinky is getting incredible brave and playing on more things.
But Minky has no fear.
Ziggy had wanted on this swing as Spud had been on it but she was not quite big enough to manage to hold on so Bob went on with her and held her hands and pushed her. Love the way she is looking at him.
Back on the big swings, Spud on her tummy as she can move the swing this way.
She is even getting brave enough to climb over the bonnet of the truck.
She has been brave enough to jump,across the mushrooms for a long while and of course Spud copies her.
The twins went back to the swings but the younger two decided at that point that they wanted on them and they both had a strop.
Spud decided to strop on the slide.
Fifi decided to try surfing on the see saw, that I have to say DD1 and I had been playing on earlier.
But once the twins had finished on the swings Spud and Ziggy went back on.
Dinky decided she did not want her scooter at one point so Spud went on it instead. Which meant Dinky started crying to have it back.
Pulling the scuttlebug was Ziggy's preferred mode of transport on the way home.
This photo just sums up our morning.....lots and lots of family fun and laughter.
Back to DD1's for some lunch and then we did some painting, but that is another blog post.
