Little Trekkers Ambassadors

We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

Ferry Spotters on the West Coast of Scotland

Ferry Spotters on the West Coast of Scotland

I must admit to being a bit of a geek. Train spotting was never really my thing, it always seemed a bit futile standing watching the trains and never actually going anywhere. Besides train platforms are a bit of a dangerous place for young kids. I have however discovered something much more exciting, and something that you can really get the kids involved in whilst visiting some wonderful places – Ferry Spotting.

With clear blue skies and a weekend free of birthday parties it was time for us to get out on the bike. After a few minutes of cycling we were out onto quiet country lanes. Orla loves to spot animals in the fields as we cycle along and her seat being in front of me makes it really easy to point things out to her and talk to her as we go.

This week we’ve been out and about in the vegetable garden. This year we’ve decided to try and create raised beds, which are just perfect for a toddler who wants to copy mummy in the garden. Faced with such enthusiasm, there was only one thing to do, buy a very small watering can and set him to work!

Encounters with Snakes and Giant Puffballs!

Encounters with Snakes and Giant Puffballs!

We’ve had quite a few days out in Thetford forest recently – it’s England’s largest lowland forest, a great place for walking the dogs and generally poking around. Over the past couple of weeks the weather has been unusually warm and this seems to have had quite a dramatic effect on some of the more slithery residents of the forest.

Gardening, Kid's Style

Gardening, Kid's Style

Today we stayed in the garden. We are in the process of making our lawn bigger but at the moment we have half lawn and half soil. I put the kids’ sand pit on the soil for them to play in but for some reason they would rather play in the mud. As today was quite a warm day the soil was dry....well it was till the kids decided to put bucket after bucket of water and make a huge muddy mess!
