Playtime in Wood Wharf

| July 13, 2013

This week my wonderful friend Sonja and her beautiful daughter Keira spent the day with us in Wood Wharf London. The weather was stunning and we came prepared with picnic rugs, toys, balls, bubbles and food.

Sonja and I have known one another since we were both in the late stages of pregnancy when we met through our local antenatal classes run by the NCT. We still have a very close friendship with the girls in our NCT group and regularly meet up with our husbands, toddlers and new babies in tow.

I love the special friendship that has blossomed since birth between Imogen and Keira. They’re such good friends and always so excited to see one another and play!

Keira and Imogen wait patiently for the bubbles to be blown.

The bubbles float up into the air and they’re off to catch them …!


A little rough and tumble is lots of fun on the grass.

Then it’s time to play grab and run with the Elmer ball.

… and to stop for a special hug.

Sonja and I enjoy catching up in the sun while the girls giggle and run around and play. After a morning full of outdoor activity we share a picnic and Imogen feeds Keira raisins.


Fifteen minutes later Imogen is fast asleep in her buggy on the walk home!

    what beautiful girls! love the photos of them cuddling. and we adore playing with bubbles too suhc simple pleasure but brings so much fun and laughter x

  3. What lovely pictures. It’s lovely that the girls have this friendship, it would be brilliant if they can keep it right into adulthood. Bubbles are always fabulous fun, especially when it’s sunny x

      It would be wonderful to see them be friends into adulthood, they’d certainly have a lot of adventures to reminisce over! 🙂 x

    I also kept up a friendship with a mum I met in anti-natal class. You already have one very important thing in common. What a great day out

  9. What a fun day for all of you! It’s lovely that you’ve kept in touch and the girls enjoy each others company. Spending time outdoors with a few toys, friends and a picnic is a lovely way to spend the day. Thanks for sharing your happy pictures of the girls having fun together with Country Kids.

    What gorgeous photos – looks like you had the best time. It’s great keeping in touch with people, I still see some of my NCT lot. Really good for the little ones to have playmates the same age too 🙂

  11. It’s great when they have such special friendships from young! It also means you get some me time while they play 🙂 Looks like the girls had lots of fun from all the smiles. All the best things for a great picnic!
