The Craig's Visit... Shepreth Wildlife Park

Last Tuesday we visited Shepreth Wildlife Park. Now I’m not going to over egg it, it’s no Woburn, but it’s a good day out for parents with toddler age children.  There’s no glitz and glamour, but Ollie and Harry loved every minute!

Everything was accessible to them at their height. 

There’s a choice of two soft plays, a huge outside play area and sandpit. And obviously the animals. 

We went midweek in term time, and it was very quiet. There’s plenty of picnic benches scattered around the park. You can buy food on site, but we always tend to pack a picnic for days out. It ensures the boys definitely eat, and saves us a lot of money.

The gift shop at the end sold the boys favourite pick N mix, so we got sucked into buying 10 for £3.50 (which I don't think is too bad).

AD | GoBoat Day Out

Last Sunday we had a fantastic day out in London. We were kindly invited by Go Boat to experience their 2 hour self-drive powered boats. We were able to take up to 8 people, so we took along Nannie, Papa and Auntie Hannah (especially for extra hands on children😂). 

When we arrived the boys were fitted with a special baby size life jacket, and then we were given a tutorial of how to use the boat. Gav was the appointed captain. There are adult life jackets on board, if you so wish to wear one.

The experience is perfect for all ages. The boys really enjoyed pointing at everything along the way. You even see the warthog at London Zoo! 

There is a really handy placed M&S a stones throw away, meaning you don't have to lug a picnic around London beforehand. Even the Prosecco was only £8 per bottle #winning!

We were so lucky with the weather, but they do think of everything at Go Boat, and there were even umbrellas on board! I'm hoping we will visit again when the sun is shining, and sip Pimms rather than hot chocolate!

Thank you Go Boat for an amazing day! #gifted
