My Weekly Photo – Family & Nature

Welcome to another edition of my weekly photo.  We had a really family orientated weekend this weekend, and went swimming, played at the park and visited the farm.  I’ve really come to notice how much being outside improves all our moods, and when there’s lots of nature involved it seems to amplify the effect 10 fold.

Here’s a few photo’s I captured from Stonebridge City Farm.  We hadn’t visited for a while, so it was lovely to arrive and see it thriving with flowers and plants.  The girls loved exploring and saying hello to all the animals.

What simple pleasures do you like to enjoy with your family?
