Autumn Leaves

| October 11, 2013

London is an amazing city to explore and have fun in with children. There are so many parks to visit, fantastic playgrounds, great soft play areas and wonderful museums.

But it really is the little things that can bring so much joy. The highlight of our outdoor adventures this week has been playing with and collecting the beautifully coloured autumn leaves that have fallen off the trees. Imogen finds a fountain to race them in!
