Holiday to Center Parcs

We spent last week on holiday at Center Parcs and had a super and fun time with lots of swimming, cycling and outdoor time. My mum joined us for two of the four nights as well and it went far too quickly.

We went swimming every day and the boys loved mini jet skis. Harry has done this before but Peter is just old enough so he was very excited!

We all enjoyed a game of ten-pin bowling. Stuart won, but Harry was the only one to score a strike and he was delighted!

We visited the play areas lots. There were several school age children which was good for Harry to run around with (and Peter actually as he is used to playing with bigger children). We were at Sherwood Forest Center Parcs this time instead of Whinfell and the play areas seemed to be fun and challenging for the older children. There were three different areas all close together so it was possible to spend a couple of hours.

We were quite lucky with the March weather and had a BBQ on our first night. The boys spent lots of time collecting bags and bags of pine cones. Harry had also made some nut feeders before we went by threading monkey nuts onto string and we enjoyed watching the squirrels eat them. Harry made friends with a 7 year old girl from the lodge next door and they played together most days outside.

We were not so lucky on the last night and Stuart ended up cooking the BBQ in the rain! A bit of rain can't stop a holiday in our country!
