We are so lucky living where we do in Dorset as there are lots of lovely places to take the kids to enjoy the great outdoors.
We are busy teaching Isaac and Eliza to ride their bikes at the moment so are concentrating on flat spaces where they can cycle with confidence and I don’t have to do too much pushing.
This weekend we loaded the bikes, kite, sky spinner and kids into the car and set off for Whitecliff in Poole. Whitecliff is home to one of the kids favourite parks, affectionately known as the “Helicopter Park” thanks to a large helicopter themed play frame. As well as the fenced play area, there is also a large recreation ground which borders Poole harbour with good views of Brownsea Island and a long, wide concrete path to practice cycling on.
The kids raced ahead on their bikes whilst Sebby decided very quickly that he didn’t want to ride on his scooter, preferring Daddy’s shoulders instead. Eliza spotted a window of opportunity and swapped her bike for the scooter as she could keep up with Isaac that way.
Of course once we reached the park the kids all insisted on parking up and heading inside to play.
Play equipment put through its paces, we then ventured out of the play area to test out our new sky spinner, which is basically a frisbee which can do tricks. I am not sure we actually mastered any tricks, concentrating more on how to throw it so it reached the next person!
We then headed back to the car full of fresh air and ready for dinner.
