I've been having a little break from blogging this week as i was beginning to feel as though it was taking time away from other things i love to do! I still need to work on my blogging/life balance but it is a work in progress!
The extra time did allow me some space to finish a few sewing projects and to try out some new recipes for the family…which i shall share later in the week!
We've been enjoying the glorious weather over this Easter long weekend and have been out exploring in the yard…….I am really loving the fact that as the toddler twosome are growing they are already learning about fruit and vegetables, eggs and life cycles all from their own backyard.
Growing your own vegetables and collecting eggs are such wonderful learning experiences for children of all ages and i am enjoying being able to offer the girls these opportunities as i wasn't able to until now with Miss Teen. As a single parent i was often in rented accommodation when she was little and although i craved large spaces for her to play and grow in, it just wasn't possible on the scale we now enjoy. I truly understand now how lucky we are…and how rewarding it is after working so hard towards this dream!
I am also more educated though now on ways to incorporate gardening with children even if you only have a small area or even just a balcony to work with…..but those ideas are for another post!
In the last few days we have been busy exploring …….
What have you been up to outdoors this weekend? I'm a little late with hosting the Kid's Co-Op link up this week but i know you will understand! As always i gained lots of inspiration from visiting many of the wonderful activities linked up last week!
I particularly enjoyed this post from Carrots are Orange as they discovered and explored a series of movements based on hopping and jumping. Marnie always offers such fun yet thought provoking posts and activities and i encourage you to pop over for a visit…you won't be disappointed!
lovely photos, and the blog life balance is still something i am trying to work out as wel 🙂 Happy Easter to you and your family x

Wow! What a great yard you have! Ours is actually similar and we just this weekend had a garden box built but I do NOT have a green thumb! We will see. Also I didn’t realize you had a teenage daughter! So happy that things are working out for you and that you are doing what you always wanted. Me too – My life may not be glamorous and I certainly didn’t expect two sets of twins but I always wanted to be a stay at home mom and do what I’m doing so I really can’t complain. Hope you had a happy Easter!
What a fun yard. I love all the gardening and room. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!! I hope you are having a great week!
