Our neighbourhood this morning…(photos from from the kids)

Hello and happy Sunday!

We kicked our day off with walking Charlie the Wonderdog and a family breakfast.

The kids decided to take photos along the way (including the Mini-Fashionista who is starting her own blog these holidays – there is a LOT of planning going on right now!), which meant it was more of a Sunday meander rather than a walk.

Not even a stroll, just a slow amble (including Charlie the Wonderdog, who enjoyed having the time to sniff and explore).

At first I started to felt annoyed, like we should be moving faster, getting there quickly, and was focussed on where we were heading.

Then I noticed that the kids were lost in a world of bugs, flowers, lanterns, and generally exploring.  The photo montage above is our neighbourhood, through their eyes. Brilliant stuff! I hadn’t even noticed just how pretty, flowery, and green the streets nearby really are. Along the way the kids talked about where the ‘barky dogs’ lived, where the spooky house was, and stopped regularly to check out a bug, tree, or flower.

It reminded me of our Sunday walks when the kids were all toddlers. The 5 minute walk to the local coffee shop in Sydney would take about half an hour, sometimes more, depending on how many ants, snails, and flowers were along the way.

Do you take Sunday strolls? Do your kids and fur kids take their time?

Enjoy xx
