Lego Discovery Centre

A few weeks ago, we were invited to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre for the launch party of the new Duplo village. Unfortunately this fantastic party clashed with Grandads birthday get-together, thankfully, we were able to come and visit another day to try the new area out.
We decided to visit on a busy half-term afternoon, as it was the only convenient time we could do. As we arrived, it was buzzing, kids running around happy and excited, some intensely building models, and others waiting patiently for the 4D short film to start. LEGOLAND discovery centre is on a much smaller scale then LEGOLAND Windsor but all undercover. This makes it a great day out come rain or shine.

National Adventure Farm, May half term...

"I want to hold a spider mummy!" Was all I could hear en-route to National Adventure Farm. It was a big mistake telling little S that it was wild and deadly week whilst we were there, which meant they could get up close and personal with some terrifying animals.

Geronimo Festival review

We had been eagerly awaiting this weekend since January, when we were asked to be Geronimo ambassadors. We heard what the plan was, and it sounded like an amazing day out for families. From our experience, sometimes, the build up is not worth the event, and others, its not built up enough. Geronimo Festival, was the latter.
 
The atmosphere was relaxed. There was no hurrying, pushing, or urgency. We were amazed. We were expecting to need alcohol after the stress of a busy day out. However, the festival was spread out so we were not on top of others, which meant the children could get hands on. It wasn't too far spread out, so the little legs could still get around. It was very well thought out.

Styal Mill, enjoying the great outdoors

The birds were singing their heavenly songs, as the soft breeze cooled us down on the warm Sunday morning. We were in good spirits celebrating Grandad's birthday a day late. The girls were happy to be outside roaming, as us adults enjoyed the slow easy paced Sunday walk and catch up.

Crocky Trail Review

The air is filled with giggles and screams of excited children. Children falling down the revolving tubes, and mud splattered parents over confidently attempting a giddy run through. Will they make it through, without falling hard? Does it matter, if they do fall? Everyone is giggling, smiling and happy at the Crocky Trail.
