A Walk down Memory Lane

I can't go within a stones throw of the village I grew up in without stopping by to remissness. So on Sunday after our trip to the Science Centre in Winchester, I took the boys to Alresford to show them where their Mummy lived at their age.

We stopped off and saw the shop that Nanny worked in part time.

We walked down by the river where I have many happy memories of feeding the ducks as a child.

I then got a bit annoyed when the boys took the higher path and excitedly shouted that they were higher than me.

I then smiled as I remembered that my sister and I used to do exactly the same thing.

I remember feeding the ducks as a child too. Good memories, and such a simple activity! #CountryKids

It's great to revisit places that have treasured memories and be able to share them with our children. It looks very picturesque and a great place to explore down by the river. Thanks for linking up and sharing your memories with Country Kids.

What a lovely walk down memory lane, it must have been so lovely to revisit and to tell stories. I love that your boys did as you did on the path :) #CountryKids

How lovely to be able to take your boys to the same places you visited. I can't wait to do that with my two, although I imagine it won't quite be the same as I remember!

I love the cottage in the last photo - I would love to have a house like that eventually! :) The bit about you and your sister doing things made me laugh too x
