Spring finally sprung in North Yorkshire this past weekend and we decided to take advantage of the National Trusts free weekend and visit Fountains Abbey.
There is something wonderful in just getting outdoors and having fun as a family. We packed a picnic and set off for an adventure.
Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal is a great place to walk, explore, learn and have fun as a family. It is a world heritage centre and the boys love being able to run and just generally have fun whilst I amble along at my own pace taking lots of photographs.
I love spring days out as a family. Exploring places and enjoying each others company. Over the Spring and summer we try to ensure that we spend one day at the weekend out as a family. The thing is that the boys love being out and about as much as me and MadDad do and we spent Sunday pottering in the garden and the weekend was pretty screen free for all of us.
You can see more of our photos from Fountains Abbey on our facebook page
aww.. such cute pictures! Spring is my favorite time of the year.. Its always good to spend time with the family outside:)
Great pics, looks like a lovely day. Juliex
My perfect sort of weekend, looks like plenty of relaxed family fun together and the photos are wonderful, I am still trying to master those lovely blurred backgrounds but figure I need to move on from a compact to achieve this! I hope this little burst of summer stays with us for a while. Please link up on the Country Kids linky.
It’s great when you can spend time outdoors as a family. Looks like a cool place to explore and climb!
Wow I love the wall climbing and all the photos are so lovely, looks like you had an amazing time. This place sounds great for active boys and what luck with the beautiful weather. Just stopping over from the Country Kids linky and hope you can stop by mine 🙂
Sounds like a fab weekend. We love Fountains Abbey and always visit when we are up north visiting family. Great photos! X
Great post with some brilliant photos, it looks like you had such a good time. I love outdoor adventures – I just end up taking too many photos! Post up later this week has a shortlist of ten *whoops*
I love Fountains Abbey, it’s such a beautiful place. I don’t think we’ve ever taken the kids there. We’ve vowed to make more of the Dales this summer and this place is on my list. x
That looks like a lovely place to visit- I love Yorkshire having lived there for a few years (Leeds) when I was at uni, we used to do so much exploring, and we are actually going on a little week away there in a couple of weeks too. May have to check out Fountains Abbey.
Love those boys, looks like they are having so much fun x
