Last weekend was spent wandering Portobello promenade; Princes St Gardens; Vogrie Country Park and Musselburgh Harbour. We just needed outside and to have some family time, there really is nothing better than being outdoors roaming around! O loves
walking running just now, so give him an open space and he’s the happiest little boy – so sweet. We took a picnic and also had some chips whilst sitting on the beach one day too. I appreciate all the little things in life now I have a child, you don’t need to spend money to have a great time; pack a lunch, jump in the car and find a beautiful setting and you’re good to go!
So, here’s our family weekend in photographs, I hope you enjoy! 🙂
After O’s nap, we took a stroll up the Royal Mile and ended up in Princes Street Gardens; which is a beautiful green area right on Princes Street in the centre of town. O found sticks which he thought was very exciting! And Scott was chasing Pokemon, thinking I didn’t know what he was doing!
The following day, we headed for Vogrie Country Park in Midlothian, this was our first visit and I will definitely be back. There’s a great little play park for all ages, with zip slides and lots of other fun things! It has beautiful walks and big open spaces – really lovely. There is an on-site cafe but we decided to go elsewhere as there was no available seats outside.
We then bundled O into the car, thinking he was going to fall asleep within 2 seconds – WRONG – so, we stopped off at Musselburgh harbour on the way home. We had a lovely walk, play and ate some chips with curry sauce! Yum! Whilst O had his pineapple – bad parents! hehe!
And that’s a wrap! We had such a lovely weekend together and I loved the fact we were outside for pretty much all Saturday and Sunday! Love love love weekends like this! 🙂
Where do you like to go on your (family) day trips? 🙂
