We had a lovely afternoon exploring the cycling trails at High Lodge, Thetford. It was nice to be together.

We have some exciting things to show you that’s new to @forestryengland and High Lodge. Watch this space.

Do you like exploring the woods? 🌳

We’re jumping into July like…. 🕶

I have lots on the agenda for July,including woodland visits, beach visits and catching up on my uni. I also have a “to read” pile that’s growing! I took my book to Centre Parcs but I didn’t read one sentence 🤦🏼‍♀️

I’m looking forward to seeing all the Summery photos in July and a huge thank you to everyone that joined in with June!

We took a trip to Great Grandmas after school. It was nice to have dinner with her and the kiddies enjoyed exploring at the bottom of the garden.

I love her garden, it backs onto the river. There’s so much to see just standing here. Not to mention grandma’s beautiful garden. That rose bush is just amazing.

I love how the horizon has changed over the years. When I was a child you could see for miles. Over to Shuttleworth where the planes do their air shows.

Now, it’s all overgrown and the trees have gained a lot of height. It’s amazing how much it can change in 39 years!

Do you have a family house that’s been in your life since you were born?

The view from our sofa in the morning is the best. Squirrels, moorhens, ducks, deer and lots of birds… it’s amazing to sit here and watch them.

I love that our garden is full of trees and the lake. It’s meant we’ve seen more wildlife than normal.

We’ve been feeding the deers berries and lots of nuts and seeds for all the other animals. The squirrels are loving the peanuts!

There’s a huge family of geese here too. They have been coming for seed in the evenings.

The squirrels and deer are so tame. We’re quite shocked at how close they get. A squirrel took a peanut from my hand. Made my day!

🦌 I’m so happy; after 10 minutes of being in our lodge the deer popped up in the garden. There was 2 in total. They looked so cute. I loved their V shapes on their noses. They came about a metre close. So tame. 

We’ve made the most out of @centerparcsuk break so far. Table tennis, badminton, Bella Italia and an evening swim in the most amazing pool area ever.

I can’t wait to go in the pool tomorrow. And play more badminton 🏸 (my favourite sport).

So far, outside our back window we’ve seen the 2 deer, lots of ducks, geese, Moorhens and a heron. A few different breeds of geese too.

We also saw a tiny mouse darting all over the woodland floor in search of food. He was very cute. 🐭 

Anyone else love being surrounded by so much nature?

Todays #mummyphotoaday prompt is view. I’d love to see your favourite views! Whether that’s a landscape, person or an object.

This is one of my favourite views on a dog walking route we found near our home. The sky looks like it goes on for miles. The big yellow sun painting everything with its golden glow.

You can just see my fam in the distance walking the dogs. 🐾 

What’s your favourite view?

We made the most of Summer Solstice last night. We took Rambo for a walk and soaked up some sun and fresh air.

It’s the first time we’d all been out together for a dog walk in a long time. It’s really nice as the kids always open up and talk about random things.

I loved the colours in this photo. It was golden hour and I managed to hide the sun behind the bushes. They’re looking into the pond. Not sure Rambo understood the assignment.

Did you make it out for an evening walk?

Family fun at Drayton Manor theme park

Family fun at Drayton Manor theme park

We visit Drayton Manor every year, it's amazing how much they grow each year and how much more the kiddies can go on. Last year the children enjoyed the smaller rides and they looked so little too. This year the children could go on a lot more and we had fun going on the big kid rides. VIEW the POST

Drayton Manor – a Thomasland adventure

Drayton Manor – a Thomasland adventure

We had another fabulous day at Drayton Manor on Saturday, we managed to get on all the open rides and we even had time to investigate the height restrictions for the main rides that open on 12 March 2016. Noah's way over 1m now and little Isla has only 4 more centimetres to go. It's so exciting.  VIEW the POST

Have a magical Christmas at Drayton Manor

On Saturday we went to the opening of Drayton Manor for their Magical Christmas and, even after three years, it never fails to amaze me. I love the effort that they go to, Thomasland looks absolutely amazing and the big Christmas tree is one of my favourites. Everywhere you looked their was snow, sparkly christmas trees and everyone was dressed up in festive fashion too. 

The new Sodor Airport expansion at Thomas Land

The new Sodor Airport expansion at Thomas Land

After Easter we took a family trip to Thomas Land to the opening of the new Sodor Airport, expansion at Drayton Manor. The new expansion includes 3 new rides and 2 old rides have been relocated to make more space and a much better layout, I know this is not as exciting but they have new toilet facilities available too (which came in really handy with our little ones). The airport includes a cafe and there is a great veranda where you can view the expansion from a high level which was pretty cool! VIEW the POST
