I thought it would be a nice break for my wife if I took our eldest lad with me, then upon realising this my youngest lad decided he was going to cry until daddy took him too.
So off we went to buy ice cream. Normally I would go to our closest shop in the car (yes lazy I hear you scream and yes you are right), but today I thought it would be a great idea to walk (in the lovely afternoon sunshine) with the boys along the canal.
The boys even had a chance to stop and admire the ducks as they sat in the reeds themselves enjoying the lovely sun, that was until J.R threw a piece of grass up in the air that managed to come down and land on them.
I won't lie I wasn't impressed one little bit with the fact that at this point I had Stretchy Armstrong arms. Well we finally got round the store and purchased our much deserved icecream.
All I can say is next time we have nice sunny weather I will buy the icecream before hand to save the stress of the supermarket, even though I really enjoyed our canal walk.
This made me laugh! You set the scene well and yep I can imagine it...only too well! Hope the ice creams were yummo and nice to hear that you gave your wife a break! #countrykidsReplyDelete
I am with you all the way, a country walk is much easier and more enjoyable with children than a trip to the supermarket. Glad they got their icecreams though and a welcome little break for Mummy. Thankk you for sharing on Country Kids.ReplyDelete
