This mumma has the right idea, her babies were skipping around merrily as she was all zen like on the straw, giving zero sh*ts. However on closer inspection this situation was largely peaceful due to the sheer volume of children who had a sibling everywhere they turned for a game of chase. It would be fairly extreme to have 7 more children so that I too can sit amongst the madness in a meditative state but I'm still going to lie face down on the carpet for a bit and see what happens. Sure there will be some passing headbutts but she made it look pretty appealing all the same. Xx
Waited, watching, and then - as if by magic - three vast carp hove silently into view.

Last weekend we visited Savil Gardens. If I'm honest, I'd say it's not the most child friendly place to visit. It all felt a little stuffy. Toilets have been revamped though, and they are lovely!
No picnics allowed and I wasn't as impressed with the gardens in comparison to the many national trusts we visit. However, I did thoroughly enjoy popping out next door to have a walk at Virginia Waters. They have a play area and lots more freedom for the kids to enjoy. Virginia Waters is free to visit, you just pay parking. Entry for Savail Gardens was £10.50 for adults (we had a buy one get one free voucher, so only paid one adult entry.)
RIAT, Gloucestershire UK.
Last weekend we went to the worlds biggest military airshow at RAF Fairford. Cohen and Indie were so excited for this!! Booking was easy, we got a free carer and a disabled car parking pass. We knew it was going to be a hot day so we bought a UV sun tent and froze lots of water to take with us. As with previous air shows we’ve been to in the UK we set off nice and early as we assumed we were going to be stuck in traffic, but we didn’t need to. It was so well organised that we got straight in! Parking was right next to the entrance and they also didn’t make us stand and wait in the heat and let us go straight in (these boys do have their perks!). The airshow itself was amazing! Access wise, as you can imagine, everything is flat so we had no trouble whatsoever! They had sturdy boards laid out on the grass for wheelchair access which was perfect. Although Indie did fall out of his chair and land on his face right at the start, which was our own fault as he never had his belt on 🙈🙈 but the staff couldn’t of done more to help! One nosebleed later and we found our spot on the grass, pitched our tent and relaxed. There was an option to get tickets for the disabled stand, which I was too late doing when booking, which also had access to hoisted toilets and a changing bed, but we never needed those and the disabled portaloos were fine.
The airshow itself is over two miles long and had static aircraft the whole length of it, we took the boys to see their favourites (the big ones!) then skipped the rest. The crews of each aircraft were so helpful, helping with their chairs onto the aircraft, allowing them to sit in the pilots seat (and skipping the massive queue again 😏) the boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves! There was over 8 hours of flying too with displays from aircraft all over the world! We took ear defenders for the boys and thank goodness we did, it was SO LOUD! Other than the heat (it was sooo hot) we had the most perfect day and it was completely care free and accessible. So grateful for our BFULL pop up UV tent too, the boys’ skin is super sensitive to the sun so we spent most of our time chilling in there! 5 ⭐️ brilliant day!

Oooo we do love a surprise and these treats from @lushbathspa , thanks so much guys! A great lift for the day!
Sometimes don't you wish you could be like the little ones and just cool off in any water available. This plaza in Brewery square is great fun for children with the timed fountain jets too play in. There's stone seating all rpund for mum's dad's and grandparents to watch then a quick towel dry and off for lunch in one of the many eateries nearby. We live Wagamama and Zizzi. How about you?
Who’s set for surviving the summer? Any tips for free activities to do with the kids thus avoid haemorrhaging £500 by week two?! Landmark treasure hunts, cool free places to visit, museums... May the strength be with you!
With the school summer hols almost upon us I think we should talk rain 🌧
What’s the bet we get tons of rain as soon as the schools finish to make up for the glorious weather we’ve had!
So let’s get some ideas together for those rainy day saviours and we can put them on our #summerdaysforkids list of things to do.
Days out ideas
Head into Liverpool and do some of the museums/galleries. If you’ve never been these are really child friendly.
Not far from Lime Street Station you have 3 fantastic indoor places to visit which are all next to each other and all FREE!
- @worldmuseum_ is fantastic with so many floors of interesting things to see and do e.g. bug house, dinosaurs, Egypt, aquarium & the planetarium
- @walkerartgallery has a Big Art section on the ground floor for children where you can do crafts, dressing up, puzzles etc
- @liverpoolcentrallibrary is an amazing building with a fantastic children’s section
Down at @thealbertdock there are 2 great places to explore with the kids also FREE
- @museumofliverpool with the Little Liverpool section or you can wander around info about the Beatles and football
- @tateliverpool has rocket backpacks you can use around the galleries which have tools like magnifying glasses etc in to make the trip more enjoyable for children. Kids eat free in the cafe too if adults eat there.
In Manchester you have @msimanchester who have some great activities on this summer from building towers to science showdowns, soap making and Power Packs 2-4 year olds too! Activities are FREE but booking for some maybe required.
If we aren’t up to a full day out we pop to our local library whose staff are always so friendly and helpful to choose new books and they often have craft activities on too. As part of the #summerreadingchallenge they have additional events on so check out your local libraries. In St Helens look on @sthlibrariesandarts for more info.
Or we do as the photo suggests and put our waterproofs on and go puddle jumping!
There are also lots of activities you can pay to do too which we can also list but I’m running out of space!
Please share your rainy day saviours 🌧
