Visiting Durdle Door

We were arriving at about 11am and I hoped this wouldn’t be too late to avoid the crowds. We parked in the Durdle Door car park which was huge and had toilet blocks and plenty of refreshment stands as well as being next door to a…

What to do in Nantes, France with Kids

When we went to Puy Du Fou we got an earlier flight so we could venture into Nantes and see a little of the area.

Siblings {September 2019}

I completely forgot that today was Siblings day until I saw Colette’s post pop up on my Facebook feed. I’ve taken part in Siblings since before Little Man could walk so I’d feel terrible if I missed one – I love documenting the children’s relationship as they grow. This month has been a great month for LP and Little Man. When I wrote August’s Siblings post we had just come…
