Getting teens out into the fresh air WITH THEIR PARENTS is a pretty daunting task. It’s tricky. It takes bribery. And pleading. All of your dignity is pretty much thrown out the window.
Once they actually agree to coming out with you for the day (Go you) they may or may not proceed to stomp around with a face of thunder for most of the time you are out, depending on their hormonal spike
that day. That hour. That second.
We live pretty close to the amazing city of Bath so we decided to drag them up to Victoria Park for a round of mini-golf and walk through the park. Yip we bribed them with MacDonalds. But that came much later and was actually a total rip-off. Not even worthy of a picture.
Oh how I love thee Bath…
The park itself is situated right in the city centre, although you would never know.. it’s absolutely stunning! It boasts a HUGE children’s adventure playground, crazy golf, tennis courts, skate park, botanical gardens and loads of park space. In the summer we go to watch the outdoor cinema here too. It really is a gorgeous place to spend the day.
It was raining a little bit the day we went but we still pressed on, moody teen in play too. The crazy golf was pretty busy and we were quite competitive with each other from the first hole. Ha!
I think Dave won in the end, although our scoring system was pretty upside-down. Shan did really well and came in close second 🙂 After golf we took a walk through the daff’s. At this point the teens crossed the road because posing in Daffodil’s is JUST SO CHEESY AND EMBARRASSING MOM!
I did manage to snap this pic of Tayla though, I caught her unaware and I absolutely love it. It’s good in black and white too and I’ve ordered a print of it much to her disgust.
We had a fab day in the end and I even managed to get a pic of all 3 of them together for the first time in yonks. Still little girls at heart 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, have an AWESOME weekend,
