As I wasn't in work till late today and my wife had gone with her dad to Costco taking L-A with her, I decided that as it was such a lovely day I would take the boys for a walk along the canal and eventualy onto the park.
We walked along the road and joined the canal at the top of our street just before the canals 'pap pap' bridge, "pap pap bridge, what's a pap pap bridge?" I hear you ask, well the bridge is called that because you can't see on coming traffic so you have to pap pap your car horn to let others know you are there lol.
Well as I was saying we turned onto the canal and the boys feed the ducks straight away, leaving no bread for further along our canal walk.
We walked over the bridges and around to the pond where the boys stopped and watched the men fishing whilst I constantly worried about them falling in every time they got too close to the edge.
We then climbed the bank up to 'Cobb's Engine House' this is a grade II listed building dating back from 1831 and is properly known as Windmill End Pumping Station.
We then walked through the fields and over the Netherton Tunnel took the boys down the embankment so they could have a look down the tunnel which is 9,081ft long.
We then left the canal area and made our way to the park and the play area.
This was fun for us all, I was able to sit down and watch my boys play nicely on the swings and slides both by themselves and with other children playing there too.
I also had a cheeky go on the swings too with TP sat on my lap because he couldn't get the hang of swinging his legs to make himself move.
On the way home (ssshhhh don't tell anyone but) the boys picked some flowers from the park to take back to their mum.
