Life In Pictures: Kew Gardens

kew gardens autumn - little button diaries

Back in the Spring, we had a trip out to Kew Gardens to see the cherry blossom trees, and vowed to go back to see what it looked like in Autumn. We made the trip recently and we were not disappointed.

The trip wasn’t wildly successful as both kids basically just wanted to have a snack or sit in the single buggy we took with us, so we didn’t get to explore as much as we were hoping to. We did see a little part of the grounds in-between mini meltdowns over ice creams, grapes and… well, you name it really!

Life In Pictures: Pumpkin Picking

pumpkin picking - roundstones - little button diaries

As a family, we’ve not all been together for long enough to have many traditions, but a few are slowly emerging. Trying to get Harper on ice skates each winter is one (not too successful so far) and getting a photo of her on Santa’s knee is another (some attempts are better than others). But there is one tradition that’s been fixed in place since she was born – going to a pick-your-own farm at the start of the summer for strawberries, and then again at the start of autumn for pumpkins.

This week we braved the wind and rain and escaped to the countryside to go to one of our favourite places, Wakehurst Place. We quite often find ourselves there when we’ve got no plans as the fresh air, beautiful photo opportunities and really lovely cakes are worth the journey and inevitable naps in the car.  We also hung out with cousins and had a splish sploshy visit to Blackberry Farm, right before the weather decided to go all mean and cold.

little button diaries halloween 7

This week we got all dressed up for a friend’s Halloween party. We ate spider cupcakes, played musical chairs and did a lot of flying around on our broomsticks. We also went to visit Grandma and Grandad and went to their local farm to do pumpkin carving and a lot of jumping on the outdoor trampolines. It was so nice to spend time with family and to be outdoors without coats in October!

This week we had a day out in Hastings which was so nice, the sun was shining and we had an amazing burger at Pelican which is an awesome diner near the seafront. The kids sat the whole way through (with only a teeny bit of technological assistance…) and we got to eat our food without feeling like we had to force it down and get the hell out, like we normally do. Yey! We also went for an after-work stroll at Stanmer House, Brighton, ate too much strawberry ice cream and came home with a pocketful of conkers!

This week we’ve been outside at every possible opportunity now that the sunshine could be whipped from under our feet at any moment! We no longer live a few minutes around the corner from each other so when we unexpectantly ended up in the same park at the same time this week, happy times! It really turned an ordinary park visit into lovely morning. As we had our camera (as always) we couldn’t resist taking a few snaps.
