Outdoors mayhem

Hey readers,

Hope your having a lovely week in the sun, it has been super ace here. My word of the week is –

 This week has been a blast in the sun and we have spend a fair few hours soaking up the rays in the great outdoors. Luckily both my children love parks, horray. Cheap and chearful and  makes a great opportunity to chance the scenery. I love beening outdoors and we had a great day out doing so. For my husband’s birthday we went to visit a local attraction called Plantasia and Maze World. I have been before and my hubby loves it. There is much to see and do that it is worth more visit and it is reasonably priced, win-win.

The attraction is mainly outdoors with a river set amongst the woodlands and widelifes which is simply stunning. We had a picnic (plenty of sitting by the way throughout the attraction) near the river and we got to watch the mummy ducks with their young ducklings. I mean we could spend an hour just watching the duck family as my sons loved watching them in their natural habitat just moouching around doing their day to day business. Around the river area are placards with detailed information on the different wildlife of birds and fish. My son really enjoyed spotting the wildlife and matching it up to the pictures on the boards.


It’s a duck’s life!

After the picnic  we ventured on to the mazes which are six different mazes all with their own theme ranging from the artitecture to Africa. We had so much fun exploring the mazes and getting los within the  massive trees which takes you away with the theme. My sons loved the quest of finding the stamper for each maze and collecting them as the stamps have animal related ones matching the theme of the mazes. I particularly liked the Japanese maze which was very zen and relaxing with the different plants and water features.

We have adopted a new family member…meet the wicker man…

Of course a day is not  complete without  a go or two on the park going down the wiggly slides or climbing up really high. That is what makes my boys very happy indeed!
Sadly, we could not stay longer as we were there only for the afternoon but definately going back for a whole day as their is lake walks and the farm animals to see. As youcan imagind this is a fun filled day for little ones. We did spend about four hours which obviously meant we worked for a checky ice cream and maybe one or two gifts from thr gift shop which you can’t  escape. So overall that was a brilliant day outdoors for all and we are so lucky to live down the road so we can visit again!

  1. What a lovely place to take a picnic, lots of runaround space for the boys and I love that rabbit fun board. I can just imagine mine cheating in the maze and hoping over hedges to beat one another, it looks a really good one where you could get quite lost! Happy birthday to your husband.
