Our family adventures – September

Our family adventures – September

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.

    I love your photos. Sometimes the quieter months are needed, and nice that you still got to visit beautiful Anglesey!

      Thank you. Yes I think we needed a quiet September to let F adapt to starting school.

    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

      It’s a shame isn’t it? We have lots of plans for half term too.

    Lovely photos – and wonderful that you are still able to get out and about and enjoy Autumn.

    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

      Ah thank you. I think so too.

    So great to hear that F has settled well into school and such fun when they start going to parties. Mich x #countrykids

      Thank you. She loved these parties.

  13. October 7, 2017 / 12:15 pm

    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!

    Ah yes the Indian Summer seems to have escaped us this year. I’m loving Autumn though with the colours and nature calling. #Wanderlustkids

  15. October 7, 2017 / 4:14 pm

    Sounds like some lovely chilled out activities. Gorgeous pictures too x

  16. October 7, 2017 / 4:21 pm

    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.

  17. October 7, 2017 / 8:03 pm

    I do love a seasonal bucket list! Looks like you’ve had a fun month and I’m glad your daughter has settled into school ok – it’s always a big transition isn’t it?

  18. October 8, 2017 / 10:30 am

    Sounds like a great month. So many gorgeous pictures! Enjoy the Lake District at half term, I love it there x

  19. October 8, 2017 / 10:35 am

    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

  20. October 10, 2017 / 7:30 pm

    Sounds like you have had a lovely autumnal start to the season- with lots of outdoor fun! Love her boots! #familytraveltips

  21. October 11, 2017 / 10:47 am

    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!

  22. October 11, 2017 / 7:58 pm

    What a lovely month you had. I kept hoping for an Indian summer too but it definitely feels very much like autumn has set in now. Autumn is fun for collecting things like pine cones and acorns though 🙂 #countrykids

  23. October 12, 2017 / 4:31 pm

    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

  24. October 19, 2017 / 2:20 pm

    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

  25. I am like you when it comes to waving goodbye to summer days. It has taken me a long time this year to accept that summer was well and truly over by the end of August!
    Beautiful photos, I love your close-ups of the ladybird wellies 🙂

      It ended so early and abruptly this year! Thank you. I love her wellies.
