If you follow me on Instagram you will know that me and my family are all about the great outdoors. We love adventures, we love exploring and, most importantly, we love making new memories together as a family.
A perfect day for us is pretty much what we do every weekend. We are all up early (who isn’t with young kids?!) and, whatever the weather, dressed, a picnic packed, the car piled high (with bikes, scooters and warm clothes) and off we go. Our favourite places to visit include Llandudno, Bodnant Gardens and West Kirby but the list is endless. We stay out all day but it always goes so fast. There is more than often a trip to somewhere warm and cosy for tea and ending the evening on the beach or riding bikes/scooters on a promenade. For us, these are the best days, the days which can sometimes be busy and stressful trying to keep everyone happy but the days that we will all always remember.
Obviously, given a choice between the outdoors or staying in, we would always pick the outdoors. However, after such great adventures, we are all always so glad to come home to chill and to plan our next adventure. The appreciation of our home is so much greater after being blown about and frozen in the great British weather! When we arrive back in the dark, with three tired, grubby but very happy children, it makes me think how lucky we are and makes me value the home insurance we have in place for our family nest.
I know a day will come when me and my husband are driving home from a day out and I will turn to look at my children to discover they’re no longer with us. They will have grown up, left home, raising their own families and I know that I will think back on our weekend adventures, scrolling through the millions of pictures that I will have taken and be so happy that I never wasted a single moment.
