Umberslade Farm Park Pony Experience

We find ourselves in the midst of tier three right now just before Christmas and many of our planned activities have been cancelled. I’m heartbroken for all of the businesses struggling right now amidst the chaos of 2020 and am also delighted to see places such as Umberslade Farm try to make the most of things. During the summer we visited and went on a… Read More »Umberslade Farm Park Pony Experience

We’re going on a bear hunt – theatre performance at The Mac

This morning we woke up at a ridiculous hour (even earlier than usual) because of the clocks going backwards.

Before we even entered the event they were all playing chase in the queue, Literally a minute after I took this picture Arlo knocked… Read More »Organised Chaos at Kidtropolis

West Midlands Safari Park

This week we visited the safari park – Arlo is learning new sounds and animal names every day and we’re really keen to encourage this whilst he seems so interested. The challenge is there’s only so many animals you can see on a day to day basis “in real life” and I’m getting a bit bored of ducks and dogs. We do as much as… Read More »West Midlands Safari Park
