Over the bank holiday I decided to go to Stonor House for their tulip and spring flower festival. It ended up being a bit of a failure and a short visit, so I made a spontaneous decision that we should head over to Henley-on-Thames to make the most of the good weather and walk by the river. We came upon a lovely playground which N launched himself onto.  It was lovely to see him enjoying equipment that 6 months ago he’d probably have avoided.

These were 2 of my favourite photos of our day out.  I’m not sure what N was looking at in the first, maybe some birds because I’d told him to watch out for red kites on our way there.  The second photo was from a series of photos and videos that I’d taken of him jumping from board to board.  There was no encouragement needed, he just got on and started jumping.  Great fun and lovely photos.
