Easter 2018 – Chocolate Fog & Bicton Park

We started Easter day with an egg hunt around the house which the children absolutely loved. They received chocolate eggs, little toys and treats.

Instead of throwing a big party like we did last year we decided to book a hotel and spend some time as a family – it was brilliant!

Days Out In Devon – Torre Abbey

What a soggy, miserable Sunday it has been in Devon today. We were not put off by the torrential rain, freezing temperature or black sky.  Instead we set about exploring and adventuring as we had two very restless children who needed to get out and do something fun. We were very kindly invited to Torre Abbey Family Sunday, Story Stomps with Stiltskin, this…
