A Winters Afternoon

There is nothing quite like a lovely afternoon bike ride and some winters day outdoor fun, the dinner was cooking away in the slow cooker, the kid’s had been to their sports clubs, it was cold out but dry so we thought why not get the bikes out and have a lovely afternoon bike ride.

Ian was at work so it was just me and the boy’s, we done a safety check to make sure the bike’s was safe to use as they had not been used for a while then away we went. We started off along the river looking at the boats, we then moved along stopping along the way to climb trees, feed the duck’s and just having as much fun as we possibly could on a winter’s day.

We stopped at the park and the big kid in us all came out, well how could I resist all of this fun, the park is not just for kid’s……Right?




Now To Warm Up

Following all that fun, we all needed to warm up so it was hot chocolate all round upon our return….of course you can’t have a hot chocolate without some cream on the top….A little Sunday treat!


We are a family who loves outdoor fun and the winter day’s do not stop that as you can see. We had an amazing time. Did I embarrass the kid’s in the park, yes of course but what are mum’s for, I am a fun embarrassing mum and the kid’s was too busy laughing at me to even care.

We had a fantastic day of making funny memories, we are all worn out now from our fun day, I am so pleased that I had put the dinner in the slow cooker before heading off out as we are all shattered.

After all that winter’s day outdoor fun we are now snuggled under our blankets watching a film whilst our dinner is cooking away in the slow cooker…..Perfect day!

  1. I was saying to my boyfriend today that when we have children I would like us all to go on bike rides together!

  2. What a lovely day out in the fresh air. I love that enormous chair! I think it’s always great to join in the fun at the park.

  3. this sounds like a perfect day to me, slow cookers are ideal for letting you carry on with life whilst dinner cooks itself. Sadly I’ve not found one big enough for my lot but I just leave the oven on low to get the same effect – but more expensive! Your bike ride sounds a huge success, I hope you have many more sunny weekends for your bikes this year. Thank you for sharing your fun photos on Country Kids, I’m rather in love with that giant park chair.
