A lot of people hate the idea of ‘putting kids on leads’ but if a set of toddler reins keeps my son safe, encourages him to walk and gets him outdoors more – I’m all for it!
If you want a fun family day out with awesome scenery, loads of wildlife and too many kids’ activities to pack into one visit, go cycling round Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire!
Look at these two cute little guys and that idillic backdrop. Walking with them both must be an absolute delight, right? Wrong. It’s a gigantic pain in the arse!
Is there a cooler way for steam-train-loving toddler (and his steam-train-loving parents) to spend a Sunday than meeting Thomas at Nene Valley Railway? I don’t think so!!!
Before this year I thought Halloween pumpkins only grew in supermarkets, but it turns out they actually grow in fields. And you can pick them yourself. And it’s great fun!
After a year-and-a-half in the parenthood trenches I’ve discovered that kids are bloody hard work, nothing makes me happier than seeing my son smile, and being a dad is probably the greatest thing in the world.
Monkeys, giraffes, hippos, camels, penguins, giant fish and every jungle cat you could dream of – family days out don’t get much better than London Zoo.
If you love cycling but have a child too young to master two wheels, a seat for your own bike is a worthwhile purchase. And the Hamax Kiss is one of the best out there.
Something really cool happened to me a couple of weeks ago – my daft little website was named Family Blog of the Year by The Activity People.
We recently took part in The Big Toddle – a brilliantly named ‘sponsored walk for little people’ – and as well as being great fun it also ended with Sonny winning his first gold medal!
