Izzy was riding her bike ahead as I pushed Summer home in the pram. We had just been to the playground.
She stopped at a gate, got off her bike and stood, looking through and watching what was going on.
It seemed like some exclusive club, where outsiders weren't invited. Certainly not a place for children to be running around.
I said, "No we can't go in there".
She said "But I just want to go and watch".
After some convincing in my head, I thought there wouldn't be any harm in sitting and watching. We opened the gate, the kids had a ball, and I quite enjoyed taking photos. They didn't run too much of amok. Most of the oldies were pleased to see them, some had looks like I had two heads! I guess they don't get a mum and her two kids dropping in too often for a visit.
We stayed for about 45 minutes, I think I am going to have some trouble getting past the gate again when we go walking past.
