We recently had a family day out to LEGOLAND Windsor and we had such a great day. It’s the second time we’ve been and I still can’t believe we haven’t seen it all yet! Still, it’s a good excuse to return again at some point, isn’t it? We live about an hour and a half away, so not too bad considering. We went on a Sunday on what had to be one of the hottest days weather wise. I’m actually a bit of a wimp when it comes to theme park rides but I have to say there are quite a few rides at LEGOLAND that I actually don’t mind going on. For that reason as a family, we actually get to go on things all together – rather than Steve and the kids queuing for rides whilst I sit and people watch (which I actually really love doing too…

We visited Kidzania London last weekend for a Birthday treat for C. He was 5 on the Wednesday and seeing as it was his first week at school we decided to make it a nice weekend. Kidzania London is situated in Westfield shopping centre in Shepherd Bush. We’ve never been but I have heard lots about it. Kidaznia is basically an indoor city, just for kids. They have the opportunity to experience various different jobs and careers to earn money, have the chance to spend their earnings on fun activities or to open a bank account to save their cash. Kidzania is pretty easy to find. Westfield is a huge shopping centre and Kidznia is situated on the first floor by Marks & Spencers. When you arrive there is a desk opposite where you hand in your confirmation. I also assume you can buy tickets there as well, as long as…

We are so lucky only living 30 minutes drive away from the UK’s number one family theme park. Paultons Park family theme park is situated near Romsey in Hampshire. With 0ver 70 attractions it is also the home of the Worlds only Peppa Pig World. Paultons Park is opened from February through to the middle of November. Paultons Park then operates their Christmas themed event from the middle of November until the end of December. All of their opening times can be found on their website. On arrival, you will notice there is plenty of parking and after a short walk, you will come to the main entrance where you will find toilets, the tickets booths and the turnstiles to enter Paultons. Once you’re through the turnstiles you will be in the main entrance to the park. On the right is their main restaurant ‘The Wild Forest’ and to your right…

Tuesday 28th June 2016 On Tuesday my Sister & I took C & my little Nephew to Adventure Wonderland in Bournemouth. Adventure Wonderland is a park themed around the classic novel “Alice In Wonderland” They have rides and attractions aimed at children up to the age of 12, a hedge maze and an indoor soft play. Characters from the novel can be seen walking around the park (we only got to see the Mad Hatter on Tuesday though). The day started out with glorious sunshine, so we got to the park just after they opened at 10am. Luckily for us due to it being a school day the park was really quiet and it stayed like that all day too. We didn’t have to queue for the rides at all. Due to C being over a metre tall he was able to do every ride they had apart from one. The pirate ship…

My sister and I have been trying to organise a day to take the kids to Farmer Palmers for weeks now. We only both have a Tuesday available but as each Tuesday would roll around something would always crop up .. the weather would be wet, or someone would be poorly, the Easter holidays arrived and we knew it would be so much busier … so we had to put our plans on the back burner. Eventually yesterday was the day we made it! I drove to my sisters and transferred our stuff into her car and we made the rest of the journey together, she doesn’t live too far from there and it was easier to all go in the one car. We arrived just after 11am (Farmer Palmers opened at 10) and we noticed the car-park was nice and quiet which is what we hoped for. I’m making…
