I don’t know about you but I find life with kids quite stressful, juggling everything that needs doing can be a real nightmare and I often find myself feeling guilty for not spending enough time with the kids or having not done the housework! Mess makes me feel really stressed so I often find myself taking the kids out for some fun so that I can ignore the mess at home… out of sight out of mind and all that! Read more
This year we decided we would like to do something a little bit more creative with our pumpkin so when BEAR sent us this awesome pumpkin and some of their yummy BEAR Claws I had a fab idea. Inspired by BEAR Claws we decided we would create some mix-and-match face parts to design our own pumpkin monsters. Read more
This August we had the opportunity to visit all four of the SeaWorld Parks in Florida, we had such an amazing time and I wrote about all of them separately on our return but today I wanted to give you our top 10 reasons why you should visit the SeaWorld Parks. If you don’t know the SeaWorld Parks they are SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Aquatica and Discovery Cove. We all loved each of the parks and if you are planning a trip to Florida then we would highly recommend you add them to your itinerary. Each park offers something completely different but every single one of them is a fantastic day out for all the family. So here are our top 10 reasons why you should visit them… Read more
It can be really hard to make packed lunches interesting and healthy for little ones, it is just so easy to slip into giving them the same things day in and day out because it is easy and you know that they will eat it. I am guilty of doing this and I really don’t think it helps, in fact I’d say it just encourages picky eating! So for this new school year I’ve set myself the task of making things more interesting, more healthy and getting my kids to eat a much more varied diet!
The last (but by no means the least) park we visited during our week in Florida was Discovery Cove, which is just the most amazing place to visit! If you are looking to escape from everything and cross a few things off your bucket list then Discovery Cove is the place to go. Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive day out so once inside you don’t have to worry about a thing. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks for the day are included. Also covered are wetsuits, snorkelling gear, towels, lockers, sunscreen and self-parking. Read more
The third park we visited during our week in Orlando was Busch Gardens, now Busch Gardens isn’t actually in Orlando it is in Tampa but do not let this put you off as it is well worth the hour drive to get there. Busch Gardens has something for absolutely everyone; it has a fantastic mix of family rides, rollercoasters and animal encounters that will have you going back again and again. We found that Busch Gardens was the best fit for our family. Myself, Boo and Bugs had our best ride experience of the week here while Daddy found that Mako at SeaWorld just could not be beaten 😉 So without further ado here are our highlights from our day at Busch Gardens… Read more
The second park we visited during our week in Florida was Aquatica. Aquatica is SeaWorld’s Waterpark and is just across the street from SeaWorld on International Drive. Aquatica was without a doubt mine & Bugs’ favourite park of the week. We are both water babies and would spend all day swimming if we could; although I was very apprehensive about going on some of the water slides as I have never been on anything quite like some of the rides at Aquatica. Bugs was overjoyed that he was old enough to go on all of the rides! Read more
