Photo albums with Snapfish

Everyone has a camera these days. Whether it be with a phone, a compact camera or a DSLR. Its great photos and memories can be captioned anywhere from holidays to sports days, but what do you do with your photos once you have clicked and possibly shared on social media? The majority of ours are just stored on our computer and I dread to think what will happen if we ever get a virus or get burgled. All those captured memories lost forever. My nan asked me a few Christmas's ago what I do with them, and she couldn't believe I didn't pop them in a photo album.

CHILL FACTORe Arctic Adventure Playground review

It doesn't often snow in England, and certainly not when there is a heat wave looming, when all you can think about is how to cool the hot sweaty fed up children down. What if I told you there is a place you can have fun and "chill out" in Manchester? Though you will still need to wrap up warm. Well there is a place that can do just that, and its just had a great new make over. Its the NEW Arctic Adventure Playground also known as Mini Moose land at Chill Factore. It is perfect for children aged 4 and under.  We actually spent S's 2nd birthday in the playground at Chill Factore and had great fun. Now its even better.

Brittany Ferries with children.

We have just got back from our first family trip to France. We sailed from Portsmouth into St Malo and returned from Caen back into Portsmouth with Brittany Ferries. The flexibility to choose different return ferries made our holiday experience more flexible.
The St Malo ferry was an overnight ferry. This did have me very anxious as to whether the girls would sleep or just be too excited and be bouncing around.

Spinnaker Tower Review

We left early, very early on the day we needed to catch our ferry to France. This was essential to make sure we didn't miss our boat. We all know the motorway system around the UK; one accident, and it goes to a standstill. We were lucky, despite the rain our journey from the North West to Portsmouth only took 4.5-5hours with a quick stop for lunch. This meant we had a few hours to explore Portsmouth a little more. I am originally from Portsmouth but it has changed so much since I have been away. Spinnaker tower has now been built, and has been standing high and mighty for 10 years. It has been on our bucket list to visit for a few years, so this was our perfect opportunity to explore a national icon.

A summary of our Eurocamp Holiday in France

Holidays. The thought of them brings a smile to your face. Memories come flooding back from previous trips, and thoughts of what to do on your next break "away from it all" sets you off daydreaming. Reality... packing, planning, exhaustion and lots of washing afterwards. Is it worth it? Well, we wouldn't keep going on them if it wasn't would we?
