  1. Very special treasured moments indeed. The weather has been beautiful recently hasn’t it. Long may it continue. Congrats on the finals!

    Looks like you had a really lovely day. My two love anywhere with things to climb and balance on so they would be very happy here. We also have two girls and our oldest one does like to boss the youngest one around too 🙂 #countrykids

    It’s great that you got out and enjoyed the fresh air as a family, there is something peaceful about relaxing in an arboretum. It’s great to see the girls on the balance bike and scooter, even if it meant you had to carry them around for the rest of the day. It’s great to see Emily so confident on the balance logs, it’s always a bittersweet moment when they become independent on things like that. Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids

      Worse still when it is your youngest and you are experiencing these moments of independence for the last time *sobs*

    Looks like it was a lovely day, and nice to see them getting more confidence. I often don’t take the scooter or bike because I never know whether places let them in, then N’s gutted because all other children have theirs, so good to know Westonbirt allows them. We’ve not been since Treefest a couple of years ago but want to go back at some point.

      They let you take in small bikes and scooters. Although with having to carry them for most of the way round, I don’t think we will bother again any time soon. Never done Treefest but I have heard good things about it.

    That looks like a beautiful day out. I know what you mean, sometimes it’s the simple things, like spending time together, that mean the most/ What a stunning place, love your photos as well.

      I think when you look back at your childhood, it is the family time you have together and not necessarily where it is that you spent it that matters

  7. Family days together having a walk and a picnic in the sunshine are just so special and this looks like a beautiful place for a walk. Love the photo of Emily on the tree trunk bridge.

  8. Wow what a lovely day to go out! The place looks so amazing! And those flower photos is <3! I always love blooms photos =) #countrykids

  9. Looks like a lovely day out. I used to live in Swindon years ago and can’t believe I never knew about Westonbirt until moving away – I’d have loved to visit. Love how confident your little one is running about on the trunk bridge, that’s brilliant!

      Oh it really is lovely – and would have been really close to you too! What a shame you missed out!

  10. Aaah I can’t BELIEVE I missed out on seeing this beautiful place!! We stayed in the hotel next door for our wedding anniversary and it was the weekend that Hurricane Imogen hit the UK so the arboretum was closed!! I so need to go for a repeat visit!!! 🙂 xx

      You must! They have a walkway through the trees which opened recently. I must go and check it out as it looks amazing.
