Phill, Rose and I recently took a trip to Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park on the outskirts of Belfast. We met up with our friends who have a little boy Ollie who is just a few weeks older than Rose. Ollie and Rose will both be turning one this month and we love to get the two of them together as often as we can. They are so cute together and are forever looking and reaching out for each other. We decided to have a weekend play date at Lady Dixon Park as it was #RoseWeek and we had heard there would be great family friendly activities going on. We picnic’d, played and even bumped into some Star Wars characters!
It’s been ages since I’ve vlogged, so I took the opportunity to capture our little day out. You can watch my family vlog here.
The rose gardens at Lady Dixon Park are stunning and it was actually around this time last year that I was there for my pregnancy photoshoot. When I was pregnant we had already decided on the name Rose so I thought it was apt to go where the Roses are in full bloom. Lady Dixon Park also holds many childhood memories for me as my brother and I used to play in the big play park and run around the grounds during the summer. Now I have the pleasure of introducing Rose to one of my favourite places! It was great seeing Rose and Ollie interact together and practice their walking. Needless to say Rose had a long nap after our fun at the park!
