The Ordinary moments - Walks in the park


One of the things we love to do as a family is go for walks and this year we are aiming to visit places we've either not been to before or not been to in ages. I've been feeling much better this week and so I've made the effort to go out a lot more and do more things with Blake. We have been to soft play as well as going to our local park and yesterday we headed over to Milton Keynes to spend time with my family for a little party in celebration of my Mum's 60th which was on Thursday (19th). 

Blake was getting very overwhelmed and tired so we took him out for a walk to try and calm him down,which worked briefly. I miss going for walks in the local park of my home town, however I do love Leighton Buzzard and can't see myself wanting to live anywhere else in the future. It was a nice change of scenery especially for Blake and we decided to pop to the cemetery to go and see both my Dad and Grandad's graves.

Going for walks is something we love to do no matter the season. I love wrapping up warm in the colder months and feeling cosy. In the warmer months I love to just be outside and enjoy the feel of the sun on my skin. I just love the ordinary family moments of spending time outdoors.

  1. I've been raised to really appreciate walks and it means I will walk most places. There are some lovely memories to be made from such a lovely gentle form of exercise. I can not stress how healthy it is both physically and mentally x

  6. Going for walks and wrapping up in scarves etc can be really refreshing, for me it's a little too cold at the moment x

  7. There's nothing better than going for a nice long walk - you get some time alone with your thoughts, some fresh air and a break from everything. I've been taking walks a lot more recently and it really does help make you feel better xo

  9. You cannot be a crisp clear day, wrapping up in scarves, gloves and hats and going for a bracing walk. Just wonderful! x

  13. I love going on a walk in the evenings too but I think it's a bit *too* cold at the moment. I much prefer summer walks :)
