Fitzroy Garden walk

One of the main reasons I love doing the Photo Challenges is because it takes us out almost every weekend in search of the week's subject. This week Leah chose the fabulous topic of pathways. I am yet to decide on which to post for the challenge. I also chose this first photo for my Project 365 collection for this week. The rest are on my photo blog.

We had a lovely morning at the Fitzroy Gardens. Hugh is of the age where he is starting to drag his feet about going, however, once there they just run and run and run! Katie told me her body would not stop bouncing because she loved this place so much.

All in all I would say a win win sitution for everyone - some quiet time out, some time to run and play and Mummy got her photos!

I did make them stop running for just this one instance so I could get this shot.

The main reason we went to this particular gardens was for the tall stately trees and so many pathways. Love this shot of Hugh running down one such path and all this in the heart of our city.

It was a family affair for the Chonk to try and get a drink! LOL! Daddy holding her up and brother pushing the button.

Hugh was fascinated to try and work out what animal would live in that tree hole.

Cap the morning off with a swing in the playground.
