Playing is so essential to children. It’s helps them learn, discover, and build both self esteem and independence. There are multiple ways to engage in play: going outside the home to great places like this Dinosaur Dream place for us, the park, hiking, or creating your own Dino dig like this one at home with a few simple household ingredients you can search for a diy project.
Let us know some of your favorite kid activities below, we love to hear from you!

🌿 LIFE IS BETTER WITH ICE CREAM 🌿 I just couldn’t resist sharing this sweet little photo 🍦 I am not going to lie we did have a few ice creams on holiday much to Florence’s delight! She has a HUGE love for ice cream and the cone too! Takes after her Daddy with his sweet tooth! She did make me smile running up to the ice cream sign and giving it a big kiss 🙈 Sweet Dreams! 🍦#icecream #weallscreamforicecream #fortheloveoficecream #sweettooth #lovesicecream #cute #sosweet #florence #sofunny #makesmesmile #letthembelittle #childhoodmagic #familyholiday #familylove #mylittlebiggirl #happiness #thisishappy #toddlersofinstagram #thosecurls #windinyourhair #sunonyourface #holidaymemories #makingmemoriestogether #lucky #sweetdreams #thelittlestofthings

Mother & Son 💕 Such an special bond. I feel very blessed. We love our time just us, one on one. Our trip to Longleat was so lovely. A perfect day for it too! We were supposed to go months ago but it snowed so much that it closed, so we were forced to rearrange. However I imagine it would be pretty magical in the snow! I think one of our favourite bits was feeding the deer from the car! The sweet (but hungry) little things put their heads into our car! We thought that was awesome! Joshua loved feeding the lorikeets..until the pooping incident (the bird, not him!). We also fed the sea lions, which was lovely! They barked for food, rather like little dogs! Thank you for a lovely day my little man, on the last day of being 9.

Every pebble is special and she loves them all 🌼

Pressed nipplewort and Matilda’s rather sweet flower design. She had such delightful enthusiasm today for propagating succulents, mixing the compost and taking care to put the cuttings in their new pots just so. She also loved finding new flowers to press and enjoyed looking through a tatty old book to identify the plants she brought in. I love having a little sidekick who takes up my random enthusiasms as her own - whether it’s pottery painting, drawing, bug hunting or swimming, it’s on days like these that I know we will be best friends forever.

A Ninja Princess wasn't exactly what I was going for, but let's just say it had something to do with Godzilla. Enough Said

Yes I'm that's mother that takes a million pictures of my children 🙋🏼 but I want them to have memories of their childhood, I want them to grow knowing how loved they are, how I always put them first, & how adorably cute they are and the genes they'll pass down to my grandchildren one day ❤️ no of course pictures don't justify the type of parent you are, taking pictures doesn't make you any better of a mother then the next but these are just a few of the reasons why I do it & I hope you all enjoy it just as much as I do.

It takes a village.
.
Yesterday, I took Nolan on his first plane ride. He did pretty good but remaining in his seat for 4 hours quickly got old for my rambunctious boy.
.
He wanted to move but he couldn't. So he screamed & screamed & screamed.
.
I don't know about all you other mommas out there, but when my son screams like that.. I feel it in my soul, in my cells. I don't know how else to describe it but it tears me up inside... add a plane full of people staring at us and you have the perfect recipe for a postpartum anxiety attack.
.
Fortunately thats now what ended up happening. Instead, the sweet grandparents sharing the row with us asked me if they could take him so he could look out the window. Within moments of being in their arms he was calm. Blissfully looking out the window & playing with his airplane grandmas necklace.
.
His airplane grandpa turned & asked for a book to read. So here they are. And there we were, two different families.. who didn't know eachother before & probably will never see eachother again. Coming together for the care of a child.
.
Let's take this sentiment & run with it. Start helping. Be kind to the mother struggling. Don't just give her a smile or look away, instead ask her how you can help.
.
& most importantly let's come together to help the immigrant mothers, who aren't even able to hold their babies when they cry. It's our turn to be the village. It's our time to help.
.
What are you doing to help these families that have been separated? Please share and then let's work together and be the village they need.

If we could see the world through our children’s eyes, we would see the magic in everything and feel love for everyone.

Oh wow! When you go to collect the bread rolls for tonight and your transported back to your childhood 😍 we used to have an Elephants foot every Saturday from Birds after our salad for dinner and so I thought let’s share this tradition with the boys...don’t think I will get them to eat salad though lol

With a little bit of an adult headache after a fantastic night with friends, Hugh and I are a little delicate. We’ve got our two nieces for the day so need to get on form! Here’s to another large coffee and the children being happy entertaining themselves for a little bit longer. #bluesky #darcey #happiestoutdoors

They are here and even more delicious in real life. Now which one will you choose?

Is there a more magical way to spend a Friday afternoon than searching for fairies in the woods? 🍄🌲🌿
We have an annual pass to our local farm park, which means we only have to go 3 times a year, then any further trips are free. Yesterday we discovered there's a whole section of woods and 2 big walks we never realised existed! We will definitely be visiting more now and enjoying some free days out! .

Poor long suffering gorilla. His eyes say it all. “I don’t know why I ever took this job. Kids have no respect for me anymore, I mean this one is on my head!”

We surpassed our last kayaking excursion to make this Hadley's #worstkayakingexperienceever . I was in a bad mood, Had was on 11 all morning, the waves were crashing. We struggled to get in with the waves, and we got soaked, obviously. Luckily the water was not as cold as Lake Superior. We paddled out for about five minutes and realized half the reason we were struggling so much was because we forgot to put the rudder in... Also, where did we put the rudder? We turned around trying to muscle our out of control kayak back to shore. All that effort for 10 to 15 exhausting minutes on #lakemichigan . On the bright side, we found the rudder. Those crashing waves had washed it up on the rocks. 🙌 Also, my mood improved quite a bit, despite our failure. #kayaking #hadleyoregon #freshcoast #doorcountywi #doorpeninsula #Wisconsin #seaeagle

Another beautiful day at Cave Point yesterday. Pro tip: if you want to get away from the crowds, walk further away from the parking lot than everyone else! #cavepointcountypark #lakemichigan #exploring #adventurefamily #hadleyoregon

Amazed by how quickly this sweet girl learns how to do things. She’s doing so well swimming without her vest 💓 she’s a little fish. We’re ready for our family beach trip in a few weeks!

Let me love you a little more before you’re not little anymore.
These are the moments that you’ll remember forever. Savour them 💛

Birding 🐝 Grams 🐦🦉🦅
.
. I was so excited today to visit the @audubonbirdsofprey with my family in Maitland, FL. We were so blessed by our visit and met many of the sites residents from falcons, hawks, owls, eagles, ospreys, vultures, crested caracaras, etc. Yesterday they released their 600th rehabilitated bald eagle back into the wild (check it out on their FB page). This is a Central Florida treasure ❤️ I can’t wait to learn more about these marvelous birds and head back (yearly membership perfect for the family) Check out our #instastories for more 🤗 .

Don’t you wish they’d stay this little forever? 💕

I had about a three second window to capture this moment, before Miss. Zoe was up and running again. But three seconds were enough to capture a little magic ✨

I’m taking a page out of Zoe’s book and heading into the weekend full throttle 😁

“Off to Abuelo and Abuela’s house we go!” Earlier this year, I helped my parents sell their house and purchase one that is only about 5 minutes walking distance from ours. Since I got married in 2005, I’ve always lived 20-40 minutes away from them, and we have always made an effort to have consistent time together, but there’s something truly wonderful about having them close enough to walk or bike over with the kids, especially now that school is out.

So many people I know have complicated and even fractured relationships with their parents, but I am truly blessed in having wonderful parents that I’m very close with. I love that the kids ask to go see them and are so excited about having them nearby. Over the years, we’ve had several battles with cancer, a heart attack, and some recent close calls, so as they get older, I truly cherish every moment I have with them. Here’s to many more memories and lots of quick bike rides over to their house for a long time to come!

[photo taken: 21.06.18] The good old British funfair 🤡
.
Yesterday a friend and I collaborated and braved the local funfair. Well done is @jemsophieanne. To be honest the children were very well behaved when we all know it can be a real risky one! Children running off, asking for everything in sight and crying when they don’t win the ridiculously huge teddy that they so wanted! We’ll hook a duck was a clear winner! Prize every time.. THANKYOU very much! Reuben slept with his blue truck 💗 until next year 👋
