My family adventures February

My family adventures February

I’m not going to lie, February has been another tough month. First I was ill with a respiratory virus, then my husband caught it, followed by F getting a stomach bug and E came down with a respiratory bug at the same time. Poor E was ill for over a week including hardly eating at all. She’s still got a nasty cough but by some miracle, everyone was well for half term last week.

We had one trip out near the beginning of the month. Just a bit of a walk at a place called “The dream” where there is a huge sculpture of a head. The rest of our adventures were over half term. We certainly made up for the lack of adventures earlier in the month.

I started half term with two days at home, just me and F. E was in nursery so I made the most of being able to focus on my eldest. We played games, did crafts and had a trip to the library on Monday. Tuesday was a gorgeous day so we headed to Quarry Bank Mill where we joined a welly walk, explored areas of the property that aren’t accessible with a pushchair and had hot chocolate and cake in the cafe. The welly walk was a lot of fun where the children completed a scavenger hunt, made a journey stick, played pooh sticks, paddled in a stream and had a go at welly throwing. The National Trust do great activities for kids.

We spent Wednesday to Saturday with my parents in Yorkshire. We visited family, played at the park, I had an afternoon at the hairdressers, went to the splash park and had a fantastic day in Eureka!

On Saturday we headed home, stopping for a walk at Hollingworth Lake. It was sunny but cold but it was still nice to get outside.

We were invited along to the launch of a new website on Sunday (Nearly there yet? which helps find things to do with kids in and around Liverpool). The launch was held at Mattel play Liverpool where there are play areas themed on Thomas the tank engine, Bob the Builder and Fireman Sam. to say the girls loved it would be an understatement. We had lunch at the Tate Liverpool before having a quick trip to the Tate gallery and a little shopping before heading home.

So that was our February adventures which were mostly from half term. Let’s hope March is kinder to us.

    You really managed to pack a lot into your Half Term didn’t you? I’m impressed. It’s great that you got to spend a little time with just F, sometimes making time for one of the kids is always lovely. You managed to enjoy some great outdoor fun too, those walks look wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    So sorry to hear how ill you’ve all been… But great that you were all better to have some fun during the school holidays. The welly walk looks like a lot of fun, and lovely that you were able to spend some one on one time with your eldest. Your few days visiting family in Yorkshire sound action packed, but with all good things.

    I do hope March is being much kinder to you #MyFamilyAdventures
