We spent an impromptu morning at the park this Saturday, where Arlo spent most of the time going backwards and forwards inside this green hexagon. We followed his hexagon adventures with a visit to the library. I have to say, the library was AMAZING and I can't believe we've never been - it's not our local one which we've visited a few times, it's the 'main' one I suppose, probably the biggest on The Island. It was brilliant to have a gazillion new books to choose from, as well as some massive bean bags to snuggle into and make a little reading nest together. It still amazes me how happy Arlo is to sit on my lap and read books together. He never seems to tire of it. We spent a good 20 minutes quietly reading together and his concentration didn't waver - it's something we've done since he was really little so it's probably a comforting place to be for him.

Other things he loved about the library: playing hide and seek behind the rows of books, sitting at the little child-sized table and chair to do some crayoning, discovering Sticklebricks for the first time. We will be going back soon for more of all the above for sure.
