Family Fun Days
It's been lovely seeing families turning up in the parks in spite of the rain. Although we haven't been able to get the large play equipment out of the van on a couple of days (because it gets too slippery for climbing on when it's wet), we have managed to do our usual dancing, games, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, etc - and a few parachute games in between the showers.
Children never seem to mind the rain - and we don't, either! Providing the electrical equipment can be protected, we'll carry on playing. As I left the park on Wednesday, with shiny wet face and hair like rats' tails, I heard a girl saying to her mother, "That was FUN!" - and it was!
What's that quote by John Ruskin? -
'Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather'.
