    My, Fiona - you have sharp eyes! Yes, it's a S.O. skort. Midi has 2, and Mini and Maxi have 1 each. They are absolutely fantastic. All 3...

    I love the puffin pic too - it is one of my goals to see one 'in the wild' so to speak.

    And is that a Spotty Otter skort I spy? Aren't...

    Well done Helena.
    I bet James was thrilled too, and I reckon you will half the playgroup arriving on their bikes by the end of term!

We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

Puddles and Pooh Cones

Puddles and Pooh Cones

Having reached the end of our tolerance of tummy bugs, coughs, colds and no snow (did I mention we were gutted we didn’t get our white Christmas?), it was decided fresh air was called for regardless of the state of the forecast and the ever present grey skies.

White Christmas

White Christmas

Our preparations for Christmas started early this year. With mum being due to have a baby early in the New Year, dad had to take off for Christmas tree hunting on his own this time round.

Picnics in Puddles

Picnics in Puddles

Ah, rain rain and a little more for good measure. But wet and wild as it has been we still need to be out and somehow picnics in our family have a little magic no matter what the weather. Two days on the trot, we bundled up and stomped off to a local beach for sandy sandwiches regardless of the next looming rainstorm!

Up and Away

Up and Away

Our Spotty Otter sock box managed to survive its sled adventure relatively unscathed, and now the snow has melted we wanted to transform it into a new mode of transport. We also wanted to recycle our used Christmas wrapping paper, so we eventually settled on a papier-mache hot air balloon.

Strathspey Steam Railway

Strathspey Steam Railway

Back in April we had thick, deep snow for a week - I remember that it felt like the middle of December despite being Easter-time. We’d been meaning to take the minxes for a trip on the Strathspey Steam Railway for ages. Thanks to a cancelled camping trip, we’d enough cash to really go in style: First Class!

While the Sun Shines........

While the Sun Shines........

We’re still wishing for snow in Belfast, and are very mindful of all the horrible flooding in the rest of the UK. To cheer us all up, we thought we’d share some pictures from a few summers ago when we went to watch the baling at Aunty Noleen’s farm.

Outdoor Playgrounds Rule OK!

Outdoor Playgrounds Rule OK!

It’s all very well being able to take your child to an indoor soft play area these days as there are so many popping up everywhere, but nothing can really beat a good old-fashioned outdoor playground. Even if the playground in question is in the middle of a fascinating place such as Edinburgh Zoo, and isn’t even that big!

Christmassy Fun in Harrogate and Harlow Carr

Christmassy Fun in Harrogate and Harlow Carr

Harlow Carr is a regular destination for us, no matter what the season (or weather) and it’s especially special around Christmas time. There are brilliant activities for the kids to enjoy, none more important than letter writing to the big man himself - Santa.

First Family Ski of the Season

First Family Ski of the Season

It can be difficult being parents to young children who have more years skiing experience than you do. But (even if I do say so myself), each year DH and I get slightly better at wrangling two small, manic skiers on the slopes. Our secret weapon this season was actually skiing without the kids a few times, before hitting the slopes as a family.

Yule Logs (No, Not the Chocolate Ones!)

Yule Logs (No, Not the Chocolate Ones!)

For the last couple of years, one of our family traditions has been to make a Yule Log, which we then burn to celebrate the Winter Solstice.
