Meeting Father Christmas at Chessington Garden Centres Grotto

We have been so excited about this day. HO! HO! HO! 🙂

We recently took our girls to see Father Christmas at a Grotto, and Chessingtons wonderful theme did not disappoint as you can see from Evelyn’s reaction. We had such good fun and have some great memories of the visit.

We hope you enjoy watching our visit.

It was also our first attempt at car vlogging with a Go Pro Hero 5. We think it went ok :-S lol!!!

Christmas is Coming | Putting up our Tree

Christmas is coming…….

So it has always been tradition in our house to put our tree up the first week in December. I love decorating our tree and myself and John have collected decorations from different parts of the world and places we have traveled, so each year when we sit down and gaze at our tree we can relive all the wonderful memories we have created in these amazing places.

I always make John put on the Christmas music and we (ok maybe just me) have a little dance and sing along. This year it seemed extra special as Evelyn is at an age where she is really starting to get Christmas and the excitement of it all.

Check out the video below to see us getting all festive

Breastfeeding Advice and Tips

Having breastfed two babies, I thought I would make a video on things that I have learnt.

I nursed my first daughter for 13 months and am currently exclusively breastfeeding my second daughter currently 15 weeks.

Hope this video gives some of you some helpful advice and support.

Babies 12 Week Update

We can’t believe our baby girl is 12 weeks old already, (where has the time gone).

Some days we feel like she has been here forever and always been part of our life and other days it feels like yesterday i gave birth.

So here is her 12 Week Update. Hope you enjoy!!! 🙂

Whats in my Babies Hospital Bag?

My friends that become pregnant all have the same question, what shall I pack in my hospital bags?

So I thought I would make a video of exactly what I packed in my babies bag.

Daddy Daycare | While Mummy Is Away

I don’t get the opportunity to have my beautiful girls to myself on to many occasions, so when mummy has to go out to work. I try to embrace the time i have with them.

Evelyn is so much fun and adventurous that it makes for such a interesting and learning experience, not just for her but myself too.

Orla is obviously still a baby and doesn’t do to much but when she smiles it certainly brightens up every dull moment.

Hope you enjoy this video. Daddy xx

DITL | Kensington Gardens | Science Museum | London |

Living in West London we are so lucky to have such fantastic landmarks on our doorstep not to mention the abundance of free museums.

We decided to plan a family outing to the Science museum in South Kensington and with Kensington Gardens just around the corner we added in a trip to the Diana memorial playground.

This playground is great for children of all ages with a giant ship surrounded by sand as the centerpiece, children are free to run wild with the safety of knowing that adults have to be accompanied by a child to enter. Once we had prized Evelyn away we took a stroll down to the lake to marvel at the swans swimming around happily, then on to the science museum.

If you haven’t taken your toddler to the science museum then I suggest you do, they have an interactive area called The Garden located in the basement especially designed for children, with water play, giant stacking blocks and much much more. Evelyn had the best time and even enjoyed looking at the spaceships and car exhibits that maybe designed for older children.

We all had such a great day and it was all totally free, you cant ask for better than that.
