York Maze | AD

Summer 2019 is actually starting to make an appearance, finally! I’m always looking for activities to do with kids in Yorkshire. I’ve heard about York Maze year on year however this was our first ever visit!

Tumble Tots Wakefield – Round 2

Tumble Tots Wakefield – Round 2

As we start back today after a few weeks off Tumble Tots Wakefield, it’s good time to write about our experience. This is Tumble Tots Round 2! Let’s Go Back To The Beginning At fifteen months, Lucas started at Tumble Tots because he was trying to climb EVERYTHING. We continued with weekly term time sessions for two years and three months. The decision to finish the sessions was not an easy one. With Lucas starting school and the idea of…

Diggerland Yorkshire | AD

Diggerland Yorkshire | AD

Living in Wakefield, I’d heard of Diggerland. However, I didn’t realise it was only a 15 minute drive away! The last time I looked into it Lucas was just a toddler so I decided to wait till he was older. Jump forward a couple of years and we were invited by Diggerland to visit the Yorkshire park and write this very post!

Thackray Medical Museum

Thackray Medical Museum

Lucas is fascinated with the human body and what’s inside us. We’re always looking for days out for kids in Leeds. I said yes immediately when Thackeray Medical Museum asked us to visit for a review! We made a family day of it and took Daddy, Sienna and my niece, aged 6, along too. The History The building in which Thackray Medical Museum is set is filled with history. It first opened in 1861 as the purpose-built Leeds Union Workhouse….

BoomChikkaBoom – Messy Playa

BoomChikkaBoom – Messy Playa

Chances are, if you live in the West Yorkshire area and have a child, you will have heard of BoomChikkaBoom. Faye and her team are quickly becoming on of the biggest children’s entertainers in our area. When you attend one of their events, it’s easy to see why! Lucas, Sienna and I got involved in some messy play fun with them!

Go Ape – Temple Newsam

Go Ape – Temple Newsam

When I tell people I’m scared of heights they say “But you did a sky dive!” and they’re right, I did, from 15, 000 feet. I’m scared of heights, still! Throwing myself out of a plane, strapped to a random guy, did not cure my fear. My fear is actually worse when I’m closer to the ground. At 15, 000 feet you don’t comprehend how high you are. As we floated to the ground in the parachute I freaked out….

This Green Moon

This Green Moon

On our last day before Lucas started school, I wanted to do something nice with him to mark the occasion. When one of my friends suggested This Green Moon, the forest school in Leeds, I was clueless! I didn’t know what to expect but totally up for giving it a go! Woodland Adventures Situated in Swillington Organic Farm, it encourages woodland adventures, imagination, outdoor experiences and much, much more. Paul, who owns This Green Moon, immediately impressed me with his…

Wonderful Wakefield

Wonderful Wakefield

Apart from four years when I resided in Huddersfield studying for my degree, Wakefield in West Yorkshire has been my home. Known to Shakey Wakey by lots, it has its fair share of dodgy areas but what city doesn’t?! I grew up in the “everyone knows everyone” village of Wrenthorpe. This is where we live as a family of four. I felt safe walking around with my friends at night, aged fifteen and where I now take my son to…

Drayton Manor & Thomas Land

Drayton Manor & Thomas Land

In the last week of the Summer Holidays, my husband had a week booked off. Given that he worked 14 hour days, Tuesday through to Saturday, time together as a family is rare and special. Conversation between us had brought up the topic of what to do with his week off: trips to the seaside, theme parks, visits to friends down south etc. Weekend breaks with kids can be tricky! What it all came back to was cost. We didn’t…
