#Countrykids: Camping in Wales

Last weekend we headed off to Wales, as you do, for a little camping trip - we wanted to get the essence that we were out of the country but not too far away, it was so lovely to stay in the valleys and the forest the scenery was beautiful. I think next time we will stay a little longer to make the most of the walks and beautiful things around us. My camera broke so you will have to make do with my iPhone photos this week!

#CountryKids – Dragon boat racing

#CountryKids – Dragon boat racing

This Saturday afternoon we started off Daddy's birthday celebrations by having some fun at Riverside park, there was a great event which involved a lot of craft stalls, fun things for children, live music and of course the dragon boat racing. The children loved watching the boats, they both had their face painted for the first time too and we had fun on the bouncy castle. It was a good afternoon and completely amazed at how much they liked the dragon boats. VIEW the POST

#CountryKids – a break from the rain

On Saturday we found a gap in the rain and decided it was time to do something and we went to Thurleigh Farm, which is our local activity farm. It stayed dry enough for us to have a bit of fun in the park, with the animals and a fire engine journey and then a lot of fun inside in the soft play. It was great as it was quite empty – the place to ourselves. It was late in the afternoon!

From county to Chelsea: the rise of the Barbour jacket

From county to Chelsea: the rise of the Barbour jacket

Oh how the mighty have got, well, mightier! With three Royal Warrants to its name, and Hollywood A listers like Brad Pitt donning their clothing, the rise of Barbour has been nothing less than formidable. It's unrecognisable from the little South Shields business set up in 1894 by John Barbour. Thanks to the likes of Lily Allen and Peaches Geldolf chucking on a wax jacket at a festival a few years ago, its status has elevated from welly brigade to high street show-stopper. VIEW the POST

#CountryKids: In the garden

#CountryKids: In the garden

This week has been very busy, lots of photos to edit and lots of upcoming Country Kids posts to look forward to. So I decided to take a trip down memory lane from when we spent the weekend making the garden look pretty. Mummy had lots to plant and Isla and Noah enjoyed making the most out of the garden too.
