The weather at the moment is very wet and far too cold for the girls and I to go out and play in.  Its so cold and wet that even the dog is refusing to go outside, he simply stands and looks when I open the door for him and walks back inside.  

I needed to take the girls out though as I think a change of scenery would do them some good.  I am very lucky that we have a library within walking distance and that both my girls love books.  I decided that this would be a good place to spend the afternoon. 

The girls really enjoyed themselves, at first playing with the toys in the play area

My youngest enjoyed exploring


Both girls loved choosing books for me to read to them as we snuggled on the bean bags, before taking a few favourites home to read

It was a really lovely way to spend a very wet, cold and windy afternoon

This day I love books.

    Technology, eh?

    1. I did feel a bit weird taking pictures in the library but I had to capture how much they enjoyed themselves

  2. My two love the local library too. It was far too cold to venture out though, another day stuck inside painting Easter chicks for us!

  3. I am ashamed to say that I have never taken the boy to a local library. Maybe I will give it a try.

    1. I was a bit unsure at first bit the girls loved it
