Ah, a sunny bank holiday! And what’s more, a really hot one!! It was absolutely perfect timing to try out Dora’s new Keen Newport sandals from Little Trekkers.

It was the first day of Spring and we woke up again to another dump of snow. One of the joys of snow in Britain is the novelty of it but this year we have had so much (We have loved it, although not so sure about everyone else).
What can I say, our little trekker loves the swings and part of our daily routine is to walk to the park and let our little adrenaline junky get his fix. On this particular rainy Friday afternoon the heavens opened and although he had been cooped up all day I wasn’t sure it was a good idea to go out.
When you look out of the window on a wet dreary day sometimes it is difficult to pull yourself out from under your Duvet; but if you manage to pull yourself outside you always feel better for it.
All our kids really need to be happy is some water to play in and some freedom to go exploring. Add some warm sunshine and a steam train passing by, and you've got kid heaven.
Stannage Edge is a mecca for climbers, runners and ramblers alike and is one of our favourite quick Sunday strolls. It doesn’t matter how many times we come up here, each time it looks different but equally epic.
Where do I start - well we have just returned from what I would describe as another world; Florida! Big, hot & busy!
The winter this year up North has been grand with a dusting of snow showing up every week or so. Yorkshire which is always a beautiful place looks even more wonderful with a dusting of the white stuff. We love the snow and try not to let a lot little thing like the cold weather stop us or our little un’ Jasper from enjoying the outdoors.
Another one of our favourite local ambles is around Damflask Reservoir. It’s a lovely 3 mile round walk perfect for lazy days as it is pretty much the only flat walk our side of Sheffield. It is also super accessible as the track is gravelled - I used to bring Jasper round here in the pram when he was a little, little for his sling or carrier.
Not everyone loves a moorland landscape. The vast, seemingly empty wilderness can feel overwhelming, and perhaps unexciting. They look beautiful in September when the heather is in full bloom, but are they a good place to explore with kids at other times of year?
It's been a funny mix of weather recently, hard to predict what you're going to get! We headed to Longshaw Estate to get some fresh air and found ourselves driving into the car park with snow on the ground.
