A day at the park, sand and monsters

Nanny took us to the park today near where she lives. Maldon Promenade Park is a fabulous place to visit and makes a brilliant day out. The park is set alongside the river Blackwater where you can enjoy a spot of crabbing, a boat trip or just enjoy the views of the estuary.
As its bank holiday today the park had inflatables there of many sizes for the children to enjoy. It was Oliver’s first time on a bouncy castle at first he wasn’t sure but he soon got used to bouncy about and really enjoyed falling over.

One of the inflatables was a small assault course where the children went up one side by ladder steps, once at the top through a tunnel and then down the slide at the other end. Oliver climbed his way to the top all by himself, he didn’t want any help and was very adamant in doing with out my help.

His favourite one was a bouncy castle that was also a ball pit, he just say there and threw the balls about and giggled whilst doing it.

Joseph spent his time going on the big inflatables, he loved the assault course where there were lots of climbing up ropes, weaving through poles and clambering over walls and a big slide to come down at the end.

The park boasts two play areas one that is climbing frame in the shape of a galleon that sits in sand and is right next to the splash park and another that is the traditional park with swings and slides.

The boys played in a sand pit that was next to a cafe. In the sand there was a wooden water pump and the children enjoyed digging channels for the water to flow through.
Oliver sat down with his bucket and spade and tried his best to fill it up but couldn’t quite judge it right and kept missing the bucket. I built him a castle but he jumped onto it and
Knocked it over, he thought this was very funny.

After a couple of hours the boys were getting tired so we went off for a walk through the trees in search on monsters. Joseph hunted high and
Low, behind trees, in lakes, in the grass and over bridges but much to his disappointment we didn’t find one monster.

The boys had a brilliant day at the park and there was so much more to do there, BMX track, model boating lake, skateboard park, football pitches, mazes, fun fair and lots of grass to run around on. We noticed that there were lots of family’s there that had come for the day with their gazebos and were having BBQ’s, what a great idea. We have decided to organise a day like that for our family next year.
