Oh what a month for this little pair. Now, the sun has hardly shone, it’s been cold, wet and pretty grey but it has been a month full of adventures and LP and Little Man have loved every minute of it.
We started the month with a weekend in Sussex in the snow, walking llamas and having quality family time at a beautiful country hotel followed swiftly by a day at Paradise Wildlife Park the following weekend. These were two huge adventures for Little Man and LP, ones where they got outdoors, got to have fun and got to have such a great time with each other too.
When the Easter holidays came round we went to Wales with our lovely friends and had a really nice week – despite the pretty awful weather. We had a couple of sunny days that we spent at Ty Mawr country park and Chester Zoo but apart from that is was full of simple fun together with swimming, playing games and even a dip in the hot tub. LP and Little Man had a pretty lovely week together.
Our trip to Wales was extended with an overnight trip to Manchester where LP and Little Man got to do so many new things – Legoland Discovery Centre, another Sea Life centre and playing in the snow at Chill Factore. This was such an amazingly new experience for them both and one that they loved doing together – cheering each other on from the sidelines and watching each other come zooming down the slopes on sleds or donuts. It was so much fun and I really wish we lived closer.
We’ve finished the month with a week at Crealy Adventure Park in Devon, ticking a huge want in life off the children’s list – to go camping. We’ve actually been glamping and the children have loved it – especially having friends to spend the week with. It’s been a great week of time together and a really nice way to finish off the Easter holidays – despite the continuing awful weather – and the fact Little Man got chicken pox halfway through!
LP and Little Man are like peas in a pod. They are always mistaken for twins and people are always surprised at their age difference. They have similar personalities in a lot of sense but they have their differences too – Little Man being quite shy where LP is more confident and outgoing is the main one. But to anyone who doesn’t know them well they are the same, boy and girl versions of each other, as similar as Tweedledum and Tweedledee. And they love it that way.
