[The Ordinary Moments 16] #2


Yay for a dry day! This Saturday just passed the weather managed to ease up and stay dry for most of the day, well long enough for us to finally get out and about in the garden. Like every Saturday we went out to my parents in the morning where we had our breakfast, bacon roll and tea, yum and then went for a bit of an explore around the garden.
It's been so wet and miserable these last few weeks, our cabin fever had reached boiling point so Luke was more than happy to get the wellies on and his coat "like Grandad's" and head outside.


He always makes a beeline for his Grandad's shed to go "working" and "fixing" with his tools and to pull out all of his own toys that have a little shed of their own. 


He has a bit of an obsession with the shed roof too. There is a ladder attached to the side of the shed which brings you to the flat roof and gives you a great view of the garden and house. Grandad let him up there once during the Summer and he's had a bit of obsession about it since...not like me, who's afraid of heights and much happier with my feet firmly on the ground!




They had a quick game of football too, Luke really getting into the swing of it now, perfecting his 
co-ordination.



Child replica toys just won't do when he can have the real thing so off he went and took me by the hand to bring me to the small shed to get the "real" shovel for him. so he could go and do some "digging". 



He's all business tending to the stones and flower beds. 


Even in the rain yesterday he managed to get out for a short while and his Grandad brought him over the neighbouring field before the rain got too heavy.

It wasn't an overly exciting day but it was our normal, ordinary routine of a weekend being somewhat back to normal after the hustle and bustle of the Christmas / New Year / Birthday celebrations and the weather finally giving us a bit of a break. 
Fingers crossed this Winter passes by soon so we can fully immerse ourselves in the outdoors again, there's nothing this boy loves more than being out and about exploring.

  1. Ah these are such cute photos, especially of him with your Dad. There is nothing better than going over to the Grandparents is there? We love to go over to my Mums, and also my Dads as they look after us and it is a nice change of scenery. I can't wait for winter to be over! x
