I'm realise that is rubbish, and I often 'waste' the fact I live in the ideal place to be outdoors. I know that everyone else seems to manage ok with 2 or more kids or various ages and they make it look so easy!
This year I WILL get out more. I went from Leo being difficult to heavily pregnant just as he got a little easier to control, then back into buggies and then the very high summer temperatures and then the crawling stage.
It's slowly getting easier, now Louka can walk as he hates to be stuck in the buggy and when he was crawling it limited where we could go.
They had fun though, and I even I did briefly, we managed almost a couple of hours until Louka decided to throw himself face down in the sand as I tried to stop him running away.
My Mum was with us, so that helped as I was on 'Louka watch' while she made castles and roads with Leo and stopped Leo going crazy as Louka instantly demolished everything he did!
Louka spent a long time with a bucket and spade slowly putting sand in his bucket before tipping it over himself. He tried to eat it several times and poured it over his head but didn't seem overly bothered by it!
We lasted about an hour until Louka let us know he had had enough, we got the message when he laid face down crying in the sand!
Never mind, assuming the weather is the same we've arranged to go with a couple of friends next week and take a picnic, always safety in numbers!
