We are always on the look out for new and exciting places to take the kids and especially ones that Dylan will enjoy and be able to roam around with as little danger present as possible. When we heard about a new soft play opening and accessible park with sensory garden we could not wait to try it out!
I took him one day after school while we were waiting to pick up Amellia and thought we would be able to fit in some time at the soft play and the park. We headed into the “big house” as Dylan decided it was and went through to the soft play.
I’d heard a lot about the soft play so maybe my expectations were just set to high, but as soon as we went through the doors to the soft play Dylan did not want to be in it. His problem was that one side of the room was a big window and out of this window you could see the park. He just kept running to the window and the door which was alarmed and looked very easy to set off so I didn’t want to risk that. He was getting wound up pretty quickly that he couldn’t get out and a meltdown was just a few minutes away, so I decided scrap the soft play lets just head to the park.
Now the park I hadn’t heard much about, but oh my goodness, it was absolutely amazing. It had a great climbing frame which was wide enough for wheelchairs to go up and had a rocking boat that they could go into and you rock, some big long slides that Dylan absolutely loved because he is a huge thrill seeker! A bouncy floor, swings, wheelchair swing, hopscotch, drums, giant xylophone, giant spiders web and I’m sure some other bits that have slipped my mind.
Dylan really loved the sensory garden which had all the musical things in and really enjoyed playing them and having a little dance while I played them.
We really enjoyed the park and will be making a regular trip here, I loved how brightly coloured it was because it made it all so eye catching to Dylan and I really loved how inclusive this park was for everyone. I’ve never seen a park like this before!
If you live in the area or further afield and are looking for an inclusive park I highly recommended giving this park a visit!
We were up and out early this Saturday morning to ensure that we could enjoy the day as much as possible. We headed off to Castle Espie and it was wonderful. We had lots of fun exploring, puddle jumping, looking at the views, enjoying the birds and all of the things Castle Espie had to offer.
Here are a few of the pictures I captured while we were out & about.
I haven’t joined this linky in a little while, I’ve been rather bad to my blog and not shown it much love this year yet.
Starting from today I plan to get back to the usual amount of blogging & social media presence.
Here are some pictures from my walk at Mount Stewart last week with my hubby & son.
Hope you have had a good week & hope to chat to you soon! =]
This week has been spent really enjoying time with my kiddos before my little girl had to start back to school.
She can’t wait to go back on Monday with her new hair cur, looking far too grown-up for her own good!
Something about haircuts always makes kiddies look so grown up!
Dylan is going to really miss his sister and I’m really worried its going to set him back again, but we just have to roll with the punches!
How has your week been?
This picture brings back many fond memories.
I have walked along this pier more times than I can remember, watched the lifeboat crew from the back window doing their training and counted how many lobster pots the little fishing boot pulled up.
Do you have any pictures that bring back many memories?
My sister and myself took the kids out for a lovely little walk and explore around the beautiful National Trust property Castle Ward.
It was a lovely morning spending time together in a beautiful property with wonderful views.
What was your favourite thing you did this week?
It was such a beautiful Saturday this week.
I took the kids and pup out for a lovely early morning walk and showed them how the leaves were all changing colour and falling to the ground.
We had a lovely time chatting about Autumn, watching the squirrels climb trees and enjoying the world around us.
I hope you have had a lovely week!?
I love going off for a little explore with my little ones!
Recently we discovered this very quiet and beautiful little spot that is less than five minutes from our house!
You wouldn’t think this was just off a dual carriage way would you?
Simply beautiful and my little girl really enjoyed getting up close to the wind turbines and pretending to be one!
We also did a spot of blackberry picking too!
How has your week been?
Yesterday I spent some time in a lovely little village enjoying the view, while the kids played in the park!
Just look at how beautiful it is. ❤
I always love being beside the sea! ❤
