Center Parcs – Part Two

21st May 2015

We decided from the off that we weren’t too keen on paying to do lots of activities – X is too young for most of them anyway it seems as they are mostly 2years+ – so Hubby has taken him swimming twice, and we’ve been out on some bike rides around the lake.

On Wednesday, as the weather had dramatically improved from the downpours on Monday and Tuesday,  we went out for a walk on the nature trail.

This was X’s first proper trip out in the LittleLife Adventurer backpack and he adored it – there was some significant screaming when we were putting him in, but once he was up he was having the time of his life.

Center Parcs – Part One


Our adventure started with X deciding that 5am is *the best* time to wake up and not want to go back to sleep, so by the time we had managed to pack the car and leave (9.30am) he was super cranky and getting pretty stroppy.

We had a few errands to run on the way, including popping in to Go Outdoors for a raincover for the Little Life carrier as the forecast for this week isn’t looking too promising. Eventually, we arrived at Sherwood Forest just after lunchtime, but as we couldn’t get into our lodge until 3pm we decided to explore the main Village area.

X had a good run around on his reigns – another LittleLife product because their kids backpacks are just too cute – and we made friends with some pretty tame ducks (I guess they’re very used to people!)

Our First Family Holiday!

17th May 2015

So X is now 14.5 months old and the longest we’ve been away from home in that time is 2 or 3 nights, and that’s staying with family. This time it’s a real holiday!!

Not only have we never had a trip with the little man, but we’ve never been on this type of holiday before – Centre Parcs.

We’ve got 4 nights booked in a Woodland Lodge at their Sherwood Forest resort, staying with Hubby’s sister, her partner and son, who is only a fortnight older than X. It’s only an hour and a half away from us,  but hopefully it’ll give us chance to wear the kids out with walks and bike rides, then we can all chill out while they’re zonked in their cots. I’m even loading up my increasingly outdated Kindle in the hope I’ll get a chance to read!

A Rainy Day in May

15th May 2015

Yesterday we had plans, but as is the nature of toddler-dom, they didn’t happen, which I think was a bit of a blessing considering it rained all afternoon. So I got out the big camera…
