On Sunday we visited a lovely Farm, Claremont Farm about 20 minutes away from Chester.
We loved the strawberry picking, the farm shop and the cafe.
Finn had so much fun Picking the Strawberry’s and really got involved hunting for the best ones. There was a free tractor ride around the field which he loved. 2 big punnets came to just under £6, they are really tasty.
The Cafe was lovely with an outside seating area.For a coffee, tea, 2 cakes and a Cookie & Milk it was £12. We all enjoyed it and you could tell they used quality ingredients.
They host regular events like art class, cooking workshops and creative writing classes. They also hold a parent and toddler cooking class that I really want to try out.
This is a lovely place to visit if you are in the area, I’d definitely recommend you check it out even if it’s just for the cake.
We finished the day with an afternoon in the garden & setting up Finn’s swing.
This Bank Holiday we visited Chester Zoo. We are very lucky as we live about 10 minutes away and are members so we can visit as often as we like. We sometimes just visit for a few hours, so it’s really good value for us as we definitely get our use out of it.
We started with breakfast at Grandma & Grandad’s scrambled eggs and crumpets.
Finn then helped Grandad sweep the garden, he loves sweeping.
Arriving at the Zoo.
Visiting the Elephants.
We stopped off for a quick picnic.
Ice cream time.
We went to see the Sloths, Finn’s favourite he loves watching them.
The New Dinosaur exhibition.
Finished off with Pizza and Salad in the Garden.
What did you get up to on the Bank Holiday Weekend?
I love reading other blogger’s Day in the Life, basically I’m nosy , but I also love looking for inspiration for family days out! So I thought I’d have a go at doing our own. Yesterday we visited the Imperial War Museum and Media City, it was a lovely sunny day.
Finn woke up around 7 and started his morning by getting most of his toys out in his play room, his usual morning routine.
I then did an exciting Sunday morning clean, while Stu made breakfast.
I attempted to get a picture for Finn’s outfit of the day but he just kept running off.
We had a quick stop off on the way to pick up my new camera. I decided to get the Canon Poweshot sx 60 hs. I’d read the reviews and they all seem really good. I want to take better quality pictures for my blog and possibly begin to vlog.
We walked over to the Imperial War Museum, Stu had wanted to visit for a while so we thought we would combine it with meeting up with my parents who live close by. Stu loved it and can’t wait to visit again with his Dad. It would be brilliant for older children but Finn soon got fed up, me and him had a cafe break so Stu could have a proper look round.
We then met my parents and walked over to Pokusevski’s a lovely quirky Deli & Cafe where we had really good coffee and cake.
Finn loved the Blue Peter Garden especially the fish.
In the middle of Media City is a piazza and part of the Dockyard Pub is the Shack. It’s a tiki style bar with deckchairs and beanbags, it was perfect for this sunny weather. Finn loved being able to run about with his football and the pina colada was really good.
We then went to Cau an Argentinian restaurant for dinner, my first impression was that it wouldn’t be very child friendly but they were brilliant! The kids menu was really good with a wide choice and they even provided toddler friendly cutlery. The staff were with amazing with Finn, the kept coming over to speak to him and bringing more Humous which he kept polishing off. All our meals were lovely as well.
I loved Media City and its a lovely day out with your children. We will definitely be returning.
