Round up of our Summer

We have had a fantastic summer, well by Summer I mean from May to end of August. We have done so much and I thought it would be fab to have a quick round-up.

We visited the new Centre Parcs at Woburn back in May, We visited Mon-Fri and had a fantastic week away. We loved Woburn however we felt it wasn’t as established as some of the other parks.






We were then home for a week and then went away again to Bluestones in Wales. This was me, the kids and my parents. and what a fantastic week we had. It was beautiful and I would love to return next year.



Our last holiday of the summer was completed by going in a brand new static caravan that was lovely. We stayed at Reighton Sands Haven site right next to Scarborough. We had lovely weather and managed to go to the beach a couple of times. Little man loved playing cricket and football on the beach. The entertainment was pants however Little Man loved it. P.S Haven… Bring back the Tiger Club!!!




We then visited Sundown park which you can read all about here. A fantastic day our at an under 10s theme park. I would really recommend visiting as we had a fab day.




Next we visited Shreks Adventure, the new day out in London’s Count Hall right near the London Eye. WOW what a day, it really was amazing. You can read more about that in an upcoming post. Bubs stayed with my mum and we had this as a day with Daddy, Mummy and Little Man.


We had a fantastic day out at Alton Towers and CBeebies land. Both kids loved it and Bubs loved Postman Pat. It was a very long day and both kids slept the whole way home which is about 2.5 hours. Alton towers was also a bit of a road trip and night away from home. We decided to stay near Alton Towers the night before as it’s a very long drive for us. We stayed at Premier inn and Little Man couldn’t have been more excited. He had no idea we were going to CBeebies until we told him at the hotel.




Not to mention all the lovely days we have spent in the garden having BBQs and lots of lovely family messing about time. The kids have both enjoyed going in the swimming pool and being in the garden. We have spent many days at our local lake side Ferry meadows. Such a beautiful place to go for a walk on a sunny afternoon and picnic.

I have had a lovely Summer and so have the family. Now looking forward to the cold weather and the days inside, heating on, snow falling and being silly inside rather than outside.

    What a fun summer! We went to Bluestone a few years ago and loved it, I’d love to go back now my daughter’s older. I’ve never tried Center Parcs though, would be interesting to compare.

    • Blogging Mummy 4th September 2015 / 15:53

      We like Centre Parcs for different reasons to Bluestones. Centre Parcs has a lot more going on and a lot more to do. Its a shame Bluestone is such a long way a way for us. xx

      Cbeebies is in Alton Towers and your ticket is for both so you don’t pay extra for either or. the kids loved it x
