Safari Zoo: A second chance and penguins…

After our slightly disappointing first visit, I’m glad we went back, and we will definitely go back again (we’re even thinking of getting an annual pass). It has got me thinking about other places we have been that we have written off after a bad experience.

Maybe we should look at going back and giving those places a second chance?

Apple Day and Butterflies…

It was very exciting for him and just proved that even in a quick half hour walk, you can have a wildlife encounter. I think it has inspired us to have more after dinner walks and more mini adventures.

Nainy overboard…

She went in too heavy and hopped into the boat. As she did, her end sank down and then bounced up sending Nainy overboard.

A Ssslithery Birthday Adventure…

We headed in, bought our bird food, Charlotte lost her small toy Pascal the lizard by “feeding it” to the plastic swan used to collect donations, a distraught tantrum was had, comfort was dished out with a little bit of “this is why we don’t feed toys to swans” explaining and then we went in search of snakes, which weren’t very far at all thankfully…

Garden Adventures with Little Explorers…

You might be starting to think about what things you can do with the little ones when the weather might not be at it’s best. I think having a splash in a river in the rain is great fun, but, I know that isn’t always practical, so, “How can you have Outdoor Adventures Indoors?”

The best laid plans…. and the Gruffalo…

This weekend had been planned out for a while. My husband had spotted a sign on his way home a few weeks a go for a Medieval Fair for the 6th Sept and we decided that it looked like fun and as it wasn’t everyday that we got to take the little ones to see…

Martin Mere: Ducks, geese and a LOT of fun!

We decided to head up to┬áMartin Mere today after hearing about some new features they had opened from my Mum. We decided to time it to have lunch there as a treat for the bank holiday and as we had a quick errand to run in Southport first. We got to Martin Mere not long…
