Days out & holidays

Our family adventures – September

October 2, 2017

September has been a quieter month for us. The weather has been mixed and with F starting school, we’ve had fewer days out than over the summer. F has adjusted to school really well though. She seems to be loving it and making friends easily. This month E has been gaining more and more confidence toddling around. I really can’t remember the last time she crawled.

Our family adventures September

We started the month how we ended August, in Anglesey. It was a lovely sunny few days with family. We had a day in Beaumaris, my favourite seaside town and a day on the beach. On Sunday the weather was much cooler and it felt like summer was over. Sure enough, we’ve not had any summer days since. I love summer days & I was reluctant to give up on an “Indian summer” but it’s definitely autumn now. We’ve at least had some mild and dry days this week which is a nice change from the majority of wet September days. Luckily I enjoy autumn too, I shared our family autumn bucket list last week packed full of inspiration.

The next couple of weekends were quiet with visiting family and F had her first two school friend birthday parties which she loved. The weather improved this past week and we had a couple of visits to the local woods (one at the weekend and one on one of my mid-week days off, just me, E & my mum). We made a start on our autumn bucket list by collecting acorns, pine cones and conkers.

On the last day of September, we went to see Mr Bloom live. It was only a short, free show but both girls loved it. It was also their first trip to the theatre. I definitely want to take F more now. It was difficult keeping E in one place for that long. She was fine during the singing but the rest of the time she was trying to escape! October is going to be a busy but fun month for us. It is both mine and my husband’s birthday and we have a trip to the Lake District booked for half term. Not to mention something planned for one day of every weekend.

  1. What gorgeous autumnal photos, I love the little wellies and that school uniform! Beautiful round up this month and thank you for joining in with #MyFamilyAdventures x

  2. Love her wellies! I’ve found we struggled to get out more since J started school – it’s a real shame and one of the reasons I’m looking forward to half term x #myfamilyadventures

  3. I feel like I have commented on this already, I have definitely read it before and I remember your beautiful pictures! I think we live quite local to each other as we seem to visit similar places! We love Anglesey it is so beautiful!!! #countrykids

  4. Gorgeous photos and some fab outdoor adventures! Glad that F is settling in well to school, enjoy the next few busy weeks, me and my husband both have birthdays this month too!

  5. For a quieter month you certainly managed to pack a lot of fun in! The girls look like they’re adjusting to F starting school, it’s great that F’s settled in nicely and E’s enjoying some more Mummy-time. That forest looks like any child’s dream adventure playground, I can’t wait to see some more of your autumnal bucketlist adventures there!

    Thanks for sharing your September with me on #CountryKids.

  6. Looks like you have had lots of fun and adventures over summer and the start of autumn despite the lack of amazing summer weather we have had. Hoping Autumn is dryer so we can all carry on getting out more #CountryKids

  7. I’m a bit jealous that you got to see Mr Bloom. My youngest has started school this September too – it’s nice not trying to do too much whilst you give them a chance to get used to a new routine. Love your photos!

  8. Sounds like a perfect September. Can’t believe we’re well into October already, where did that time go?? I love that her school uniform is red like your little ladybird logo! I’ve never been to Anglesey but it looks gorgeous, might try to go next year. Thanks for linking up to #familytraveltips

  9. Although you say it’s been a quieter month, you’ve still been busy. I like your collection that has started you autumn bucket list! I always liked the UK autumn and will miss it this year now we’ve moved. Thanks for linking up to #wanderlustkids
