Mini adventure up Birkrigg Common…

The path was a lot steeper than we thought, not that that stopped Tommy running up it (seriously, where does he get that energy from?!). We spotted (and maybe ate) loads of blackberries on the way up and had a brief encounter with a caterpillar.

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?”

Last minute Blackberry picking

We came back from holiday yesterday and had planned on getting on with some housework and resting up today but at about 2pm I decided we should take advantage of the early crop of blackberries that have appeared so we put on our wellies and headed out towards the woods at the back of our…

Exploring Anglesey… Day 4: A quick stop off in Betws-Y-Coed

The last day of our little holiday and we had decided to take a little detour on our way back home to Betws-y-Coed, somewhere I have lots of brilliant memories from as a child. I didn’t make an organised picnic so much as collect all the left over food together and throw it in the…

Just like Daddy…

I had to nip into town to get some last minute bits for our holiday and had Tom with me. I was looking for a splash suit for him, something light weight for going in rivers in but I wasn’t happy with what I found. I had joked with Bob the night before that you…
