So good to be outdoors – Autumn Walk 2018

So good to be outdoors – Autumn Walk 2018

When our little man was born we started a family tradition to get outdoors with our cameras for an Autumn walk every year. It's such a great opportunity to capture some lovely images of M during such a colourful season. But this year it was starting to look like we were going to miss our first, annual Autumn Walk in 6 years. The weather, illness, busy schedules and no spare time, were all factors in preventing us from getting outdoors as a family. Suddenly a window opened up in our diaries and the…continue reading →
So little time – Autumn Walk 2017

So little time – Autumn Walk 2017

This year our diary has been packed to bursting. With school back in full swing we constantly seem to be on the go. Add to the mix my Beaver leader training and Marathon prep, resulting in very little free time at the moment. When M was born we decided to set ourselves the annual tradition of taking an Autumn walk somewhere nice, among the bronze leaves and cool air. This year we decided to head to the same place we visited last year, but noticed it was going to be closer to Winter…continue reading →
Pick your own pumpkin at Sopley Farm

Pick your own pumpkin at Sopley Farm

Last year we started a pick your own pumpkin tradition with our friends. We visited Sopley Farm with them and enjoyed it so much that we arranged to visit again this year. Both our boys are the same age and are quite content when racing around discovering pumpkins, which is really nice to see. It also means we get to chat and catch up whilst they compete to find the biggest pumpkin. The pick your own pumpkin patch at Sopley Farm is huge and had even more pumpkins than last year. It wasn't…continue reading →
So much climbing – Autumn Walk 2016

So much climbing – Autumn Walk 2016

It's that time of year where we wrap up warm and head out to a local park or woods to enjoy our annual Autumn Walk. Our Autumn walk is fast becoming my favourite activity on our calendar as we get to enjoy family time as well as the gorgeous colours Autumn brings. This year we chose to head to Upton Country Park to enjoy a stroll through the vast amount of woods on site. The little dude wasn't too impressed with my idea for an Autumn walk and made it known he was…continue reading →
So much exploring – Autumn Walk 2015

So much exploring – Autumn Walk 2015

I was quite excited last week, when C suggested we find somewhere new to take our annual Autumn walk. We started our autumn walk tradition the year our little man was born and have enjoyed how it's progressed each year. We are lucky to live so close to so many gorgeous forests and woodland parks, so we took to Google to discover somewhere we'd never been, but could get to within an hour. With a few clicks, we had settled on Bolderwood set in the gorgeous New Forest, Hampshire. We packed up a…continue reading →
So much fun – Autumn Walk 2014

So much fun – Autumn Walk 2014

Every year since M arrived we've enjoyed an annual Autumn walk. This walk gives us the chance to enjoy the change in the seasons and the beautiful colours. The first year M seemed so tiny and small but it gave us a chance to share so many colours with him. Last year we noticed so much change in our little man it was great. This year was totally different, this year we had so much fun. We took M to Moors Valley Park, our favourite location at the moment as there is so…continue reading →
So much change – Autumn Walk 2013

So much change – Autumn Walk 2013

As I said in last years Autumn Walk post, I love Autumn for the colours and changing leaves. It seemed appropriate to take our Autumn walk this weekend as a lot is changing in our little world. On Monday C returns to work full time and M goes off to Nursery. We wanted to make the most of our family time, so we did what we do best, ran around like crazy people whilst I took photos. I love seeing M and C interact, they really are the best of friends. Their shared…continue reading →
So many colours – Autumn walk 2012

So many colours – Autumn walk 2012

I think this time of year is one of my favourite times of year. I love the colours autumn offers with all the leaves changing on the trees. I also love the way the cold nips at your face as you walk out your front door. I think as adults we take too much for granted. As the seasons change we never really stop to look at how beautiful nature and our surroundings are. I know we are lucky enough to live somewhere with beautiful surroundings. But even those who live in the…continue reading →
