Déjà Vu!

Are you ever that person to not try to organised plans with someone because you just assume they'd be busy. That's what I always do...I should just ask and see if they have plans but I'm an anxious banana and just don't do it to save myself the panic. One person I always assume is busy is my dad. He comes round every Sunday to see us no matter what, its lovely knowing each week he is coming. Only trouble is that is all we do, we don't adventure for trips out together and such like.

Last Sunday, I thought to myself...Nope, that's it I am just going to call him and see what he thinks about going out for the afternoon. Of course he said yes, (silly old me) and we ventured out to a place called Stockwood Park local to us. My dad used to take me and my brother there for days out and I remember always having such fun, that's why I chose to go there in particular.


It was definitely just how I remembered it, the play carriage in the park, the museum, the big fields, only I didn't realise just how much there was to do there you don't take everything in when your little. The museum was huge, alot bigger than I remember with lots of old style vehicles, carriages, and lots of art work from a new wild animal exhibition they had on. They had a little Bee educational green house that you could walk through learning all about bumble Bees. There was another playground focused on wooden climbing frames of course Penny was too young but if I was not walking the buggy I would've give it my best shot to get up on it.

Penny fell asleep after a huge tantrum because she was of course not allowed my dads cappuccino. Standard. We walked around the gardens it felt just like old times me and my dad going on an adventure. It was honestly such a lovely day, I cannot remember the last time me and my dad went out for the day together, what made it better was that we had come back to this special place together, but not just me and my dad. I got to bring my own pride and joy, my most loved person in the world. My own daughter. It was a complete Déjà Vu afternoon. I really will treasure the memories of that day. 

Seeing my dad playing in the park with Penny, and seeing them bond really made me realise, I'm going to call him to make plans more often. I cant experience such a lovely day and then it just end. We need to make it a regular thing. I need more of those days.

I did record the day via my YouTube channel, so if you want to see more about our day then please go and check that out.  SUNDAY VLOG | AN AFTERNOON WITH GRANDAD | BABYYPEBBLES

  3. How lovely. My Mother doesn't see my girls. She came over yesterday and it was the first time she saw them in a year and a half. Luckily my girls have other grandparents but not all take them out etc but we do try and take the girls to see them quite often

  5. Awww. I've always been terrified of making plans with people. I'm not a very social person at heart but since having kids I've really pushed myself. What a lovely day. I have moments like these with my own grandad.

  6. Im one of those people who makes plans then when it comes to it, I would rather stay in and be anti social! Although i've been much better this year and have actually enjoyed it! Haha kids are so funny, Abbie just had a tantrum because she wanted me to stand somewhere, but she didn't know where, just kept pointing to different spots before throwing herself on the floor and crying! Lol x
