Adventures // Humber Bridge Country Park & Fraisthorpe Beach

This weekend has been so wonderful – what a fantastic start to half term! I’m writing this on Monday evening, as Nick has had today off so ‘Beach Sunday’ has been on Monday this week.

Saturday was a very quiet day for us. We wanted to get the house into some sort of order ahead of our friends coming round that evening – and also half term – so the kids played together whilst we cleaned and tidied. 

Sunday was infinitely more exciting in terms of adventures! We spent the morning wondering where we should take Bertie for a walk and finally decided upon the Humber Bridge Country Park. We often do the Foreshores walk, but haven’t actually been into the country park together, so we packed a picnic and piled into the car.

There haven’t been many times when I feel like I’ve nailed being a parent, but we spent a good hour building a den in the woods – followed by the consumption of H-Bear and I’s homemade cupcakes next to said den. When I was pregnant with Busby, I always wondered what sort of mother I would be. I hoped I would be something of a ‘Mary Poppins meets Bear Grylls hybrid’, and I completely achieved that in this moment!

Thanks to the Hey Duggee stick episode, H-Bear is a bit obsessed with the idea of building a campfire, so once our den was made that’s all he would talk about. We had some logs left over from the fireplace, so we decided to have an impromptu fire and sparkler evening when we got home. It was ace!

Nick was off on Monday and the sun was shining, so we decided to return to Fraisthorpe for a walk and another frozen picnic.

H-Bear (obviously) filled his boots with the sea again…

And I embarrassed my daughter by doing some star jumps on the sand…

I’ve made another little video this week of more snapshots from the weekend, if you fancy watching more of our adventures.

My mum will be up from Sussex next weekend, so expect more adventures!

    What gloriously muddy fun! I cracked up at “Mary Poppins/Bear Grylls hybrid” – I think I missed a trick here. 😀 #OurWeekendHappy

    Oh what a beautiful weekend. Honestly, the photos of the kids are gorgeous, but those photos of Bertie…OMG! What a dog I love that it was a weekend that left you feeling like you were absolutely winning! Thanks so much for linking up with #ourweekendhappy

    Oh how lovely. So many fab photos and I just love the yellow jackets. And those rainbow wellies are so gorgeous!

    Oh Hannah, your photos get more and more stunning each week. But I didn’t think that was possible. I LOVE the photo of you doing star jumps on the beach. That is totally something I would do to embarrass the children. Picnics in the cold are my favourite. As our trips to the beach. And I’m totally envious of your fire and sparklers evening. That is definitely winning at parenting. Thanks so much for linking up to #ourweekendhappy. I really hope to see you back tomorrow. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    What a lovely outdoorsy weekend! I would love to live near the sea so I could visit it with the children! It looks like you had lots of fun – even embarrassing them with your star jumps!!

    Fab pictures, looks like a lovely weekend. I love Busbys style, the coat, the wellies and sunglasses, I’d wear the same!
