Cannonball !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We took advantage of a lovely sunny windy day and took the children out for a bike ride. There is a lovely park near to us which apparently used to be a coal mine and they made it into a beautiful park and there is also a woodland. It is within walking or riding distance of our house but the roads are so busy I took the children over in the car loaded with bikes whilst Andrew cycled over ther and met us. My son wanted to take some pictures whilst I was driving so the next couple of pictures are by him and not me as I was driving.

Andrew joined us and off we went. It is the perfect way to explore the park and we found bits that we had never seen before. Cannonball is what my son shouts as he pedels off "REALLY FAST MUM".
I have no idea where he got this from. There is a skate and BMX course in the park and he looks longingly at it every time we go but I usually tell him it is too buy for him. Well today I was a brave Mummy and asked the "Big Kids" if they would let him have a turn around for one minute. To say he was thrilled was an understatement and the big kids were shouting him on. Shame that Daddy had gone off with the camera so I didnt get a picture.

Here is one of me, well sort of.

We even had a cycle around the woodland, it was perfect.

My son asked me what the noise was, all you could hear were the trees.
Perfick !!!!

Thanks for your comment on my quilt. Now I know where this park is but the woodland bit - is that in that actual park or is it on the other side of the road? I don't recognise this at all.

Hi Sarah - Sounds like you had a great day. The weather looks very like it was here too, warm, sunny and breezy. Perfect bike riding weather.
