Having had a very full on week which involved travelling to and from London 3 times and my total hours of sleep less than the number of days in the week I really wanted a lie in this Sunday. Unfortunately it was not to be, as I have kids with a love for the outdoors and exploring and so before most people had even opened their eyes we were out exploring the local park.
The crisp November air had a lovely fresh feel to it in the early hours and it was a great way to blow away the cobwebs and start a Sunday morning. The girls wrapped up warm in their coats from JoJo Maman Bébé.
Having two children in the same sized clothes can often be expensive as there are no hand me downs to be had. Their love to play outside and explore means I also need to buy clothes that can withstand mud and multiple washes, our washing machine is never off, and keep the girls warm as they explore and go on their adventures. JoJo Maman Bébé have thought of this with their multi buy offer. Buying clothes for the girls has never been easier.
The coats the girls are wearing also came in other colours and patterns, and are fleece lined. They are also reversible and so will last through all seasons, except perhaps summer. The girls love the chunky easy to use zips and my youngest is asking me to buy her some gloves to attach to the glove hooks inside the sleeves. They have certainly kept both girls warm through fireworks and through our morning stroll.
The girls loved running through the leaves and jumping over the piles of leaves that had been created. Although Little Man was in his pushchair he was beginning to get grumpy so we headed home. We completed homework and reading and then settled down to complete a jigsaw.
The girls decided to complete their new Ravensburger puzzle, Woodland Friends. The giant pieces were easy to assemble and a great size for both girls to handle. Little Man was very interested in the jigsaw and kept crawling over to take a look. It was perhaps the bright, colourful pictures that were drawing in his attention but he was very interested in the jigsaw.
Woodland friends kept the girls [and Little Man] busy for a good hour. The assembly was quick and simple but it was the discussion afterwards that followed. The girls asking if we had the birds in our trees that live in the garden. Asking the names of each bird, which I could answer as there is a handy guide included and asking if we could try and spot them in our garden too.
We spotted the birds on the jigsaw and then headed into the garden to see if we could spot any birds. It was really interesting and a great way to discuss the birds leaving for the winter months. Although only afternoon it had begun getting dark and due to the lack of birds we decided to head back inside for a snack before dinner.
I may not have got my Sunday lie in but I did get to spend lots of time with my little people.
This day I love Sunday Antics!
Jigsaw and coats were sent in exchange for this post, all words are my own opinion.
