Center Parcs 2019

We decided to head back to Center Parcs just north of the Lake District this year, as we enjoyed out short break there last year.

We got up to a lot including a few walks, football for James, lots of swimming and back to see the birds of prey.

A summer retreat to Cala Bona in Majorca

We have been to Cala Bona a few times in the last few years and we love it so much that we decided to have a late summer retreat back to the same place.

Back to Cala Bona

We love visiting Cala Bona in Majorca. Last year we end up visiting twice. First around Easter and then again at the end of the summer holidays. When booking our summer holiday abroad (all wonderfully handled by my wife) we had no hesitation in booking again for the same resort.

Majorca is a lovely island and provides all kinds of holidays. For us, with two children it provides all we need. The kids love the pool(s) and then can spend all day playing around, diving in and going up and down the slides. For us it provides a nice relaxing place to sunbathe and is a good safe space for both us and the children.

A BBQ in the Summer Sunshine

Today we attended a BBQ on what was lovely day and we were so lucky with the weather as it was gorgeous.

The kids had a great time playing football in the garden and then the “water snake” came out and they got wet through – but they had a great time.

Amazing Anglesey in Wales

I have just returned from a few days a way in a lovely part of the UK that I have rarely spent time in before which Anglesey in north west wales. We (the family) spent a few days with my parents, them in their caravan and us (me and my wife) in a nearby hotel. The kids – well they of course wanted to stay in the caravan with grand parents.

Barmouth Bay in Wales for a Week

Being half term we took the opportunity to get away and spend the week in Wales in a caravan. We made the trip to Barmouth, on the West coast of wales which although a 3 hour journey was hold-up free which as a bonus.

The holiday park we stayed on has a lovely pool and the first morning we spent some time in the pool with the boys. They love swimming especially when they are in the pool with their mum and I.

A Lovely Thursday

Today was a Thursday like any other day, but it turned out to be a really interesting day and a very enjoyable one. The day had three bike rides, a run, a trip to the park and a great day at work. Nothing special but worth sharing some photos of.

My First New Bike in 24 Years

Today I bought myself a bike which coincided with James getting his next bike as he had outgrown his smaller bike passed up from his brother. I am certainly looking forward to more adventure cycle rides like the one we had after tea this evening!
