On Mothers Day we managed to get out in the local park for an hour or so, usually we either rush around the park with the dogs or we go somewhere else. It was nice to just be at the park and be there! No rushing around. We enjoyed the space around us and explored, it was fun and we found some parts of the park that we hadn’t seen before.
Admit it: travelling with the whole family can sometimes be a pain. Even though you endlessly enjoy their company, carrying around bulky prams and coordinating your child’s every move can be exhausting work. Thankfully we have got out of the pram stage now, but there are times where I wish I still had it. Most cases with our family, we mean our little furry friends too, and there are times where you wonder whether or not you could bring your pet along.
On Saturday we took a little trip to Norfolk to try out BeWILDerwood, we drove past it everyday when we stayed at Hall Farm Cottages in Ludham and we have been desperate to go since then. The weather looked dry and mild on Saturday so we knew it was the right time to go. BeWilderwood is in Hoveton, very near Wroxham, it’s a lovely area if you are planning a holiday as there is so much to do.
London is a great destination for everyone and it has something for people of all ages. While the city is well-known the world over for its vibrant nightlife, it is also a great places to visit with your family. Whether you are planning on bringing a baby or a toddler to London, there are plenty of fun and exciting things that you can do to keep them interested. Here are a few of them.
I adore the beach at Wells-Next-The-Sea, from the carpark with the new Joules hut to the miles and miles of sand. I do not think we have ever been there and had a bad experience, it’s great for the dogs and the children as there is just so much to do and so much space to explore too.
I have so many adventures planned this year already; with a European break and somewhere a little further afield on the horizon, I have officially caught the wanderlust bug. Recently, whilst thinking of all the places I’d like to visit over the next few years, one style of trip that really appeals to me is a cruise after the fun we had last August. Depending on the package, you have the option to see a selection of cities, and when it comes to seeing more of Europe, I think this is a better way than booking individual trips. We loved doing this when we did our cruise. If you’re not convinced, here are my top reasons why:
We took a trip across to Norfolk on Sunday to visit some friends who had just moved house to a lovely, remote, location. The village was lovely and we made the most of the weather to get some fresh air at the park. The children had fun playing with some friends and so did Daddy! The weather is really starting to turn frosty, time to wrap up nice and snuggled.
You may recall at the start of the week I wrote about our Stay, Play & Explore adventures that we were going to have in Leicestershire. We had a lot of fun, it was great to get a break from the normal routines: cooking and cleaning – you know the usual things. Did you know that it’s not limited to half term? You can do it anytime in the year.
Planning a family vacation can be quite the process, especially if you are trying to please and entertain multiple kids. One destination that is filled with activities for all ages is Niagara Falls, Canada. We often think of it for its beauty, but many people aren’t aware of the sheer volume of family-friendly activities and attractions there are!
If you’re looking for a family holiday with a difference you may not have to travel as far as you think. Wales is a great location for staycations with several accommodation options available in Wales, holiday cottages being one of the best options because it gives your family privacy as well as providing that lovely, homely feel.
