I feel like dancing...dancing in the park!

The bank holiday weekend wasn't the best for us, Daddy really wasn't well, he had picked up some sort of flu/virus and it took him several days and a lot of sleep to feel even a bit normal. On Sunday he decided he needed some fresh air and the as the girls seemed to have some energy they needed to use, we headed off to a park that we like to visit, along with Nanny. 

When we arrived there were lots of people heading from the car park with blankets and bags, we could hear music and headed towards the bandstand to see what was going on. Sometimes they have events but we hadn't heard about this one.

As we got closer we could see that there was a jazz band playing and lots of people sitting on blankets, we stopped to listen briefly while the Little ones pottered around the trees looking for pine cones and squirrels.

Little 1 liked the music and started dancing, she danced for ages, smiling and posing for me as I took some photos (she really does love to pose and is always dancing and looking at herself in the mirror), I did do a rather cute video of her getting her groove on but Little 2 was shouting her name in it so I haven't put it in.

Little 2 joined in the dancing as little 1 reached her finale, then off they ran together to look for ducks to feed.

We found a few ducks that might have been followed a bit by the Little ones until they were all back in the water (!) We wandered over to the lake and found a pair of swans with three cygnets. They were so cute and really very fluffy.

We went for a stroll around the lake, the Little ones found the spring that runs down the footpath and walked through it to the top, there were a few wobbly moments and Little 1 almost ended up sat in it!!

Looking all grown up all of a sudden!
We stopped off at the park for a quick play, and walked along the walls and tree stumps on the way back to the car, we had a lovely hour or so getting some fresh air and exercise, everyone felt better for it. I wonder what events will be on at the park over the summer?
