Craig Family Blog: Carters Steam Fair Review – Parenting Twins Article

We were kindly invited to the Carters Steam Fair. Unfortunately Gavin was working, but my amazing sister joined us for some serious fun in the sun! From the second we arrived I felt like I was taken back in time. It had some serious ‘Heart Beat’ type vibes. The music was fantastic, and the smell of steam was terribly nostalgic (even though I wasn’t even born back then!) We were kindly #gifted passes to go on the rides. Ollie’s going through a very anxious phase at the…

Craig Family Blog: AD | Paultons Park Review – Parenting Twins Article

We had such a fantastic HOT day at Paultons Park.  When we arrived we headed straight to Peppa Pig World, as the boys had enjoyed it so much last time. No queues were longer than 20 minutes, which I was surprised about for a weekend. Every ride is that area is perfect for the boys age group. That weekend they also had special visitors of the PJ Masks.  I felt for them in the costumes in the boiling heat! The boys throughly enjoyed doing the movements…

Craig Family Blog: AD | Paradise Wildlife Park – Parenting Twins Article

Craig Family Blog: AD | Paradise Wildlife Park AD | Paradise Wildlife Park On Monday 24th June we visited Paradise Wildlife Park. I’d say it was only within the past couple of years that I first became aware of the park. I didn’t really know much about, other than it was reasonably local.  We arrived, and headed to the birds and tortoise section first. The boys LOVED watching the tortoise wonder about. One thing I must say is that every section…

Craig Family Blog: AD | Knebworth House – Parenting Twins Article

Craig Family Blog: AD | Knebworth House AD | Knebworth House I have lived within a 15 minute drive of Knebworth house all my life, but I’d never actually been. We drive past it frequently, especially when I was pregnant with the boys as it’s en route to the hospital.  They kindly invited us to the Peppa Pig and George event on the Sunday 23rd June. It has the most beautiful grounds, and loads of parking. We first headed to meet Peppa and George. I knew from previous…

Craig Family Blog: AD | Our Journey to Paultons Park – Parenting Twins Article

Craig Family Blog: AD | Our Journey to Paultons Park AD | Our Journey to Paultons Park On Saturday 29th June, we were invited to Paultons Park. Rather than staying overnight the night before, we set off from out home in St Albans in the morning. We hadn’t had breakfast so we did stop on route for a cheeky McDonalds brekkie. Who doesn’t love a sausage and egg McMuffin, and OMG the hash browns.. anyway I digress.  The boys were kindly gifted products to keep them entertained…

The Craig’s Visit… Shepreth Wildlife Park – Parenting Twins Article

Last Tuesday we visited Shepreth Wildlife Park. Now I’m not going to over egg it, it’s no Woburn, but it’s a good day out for parents with toddler age children.  There’s no glitz and glamour, but Ollie and Harry loved every minute! Everything was accessible to them at their height.  There’s a choice of two soft plays, a huge outside play area and sandpit. And obviously the animals.  We went midweek in term time, and it was very quiet. There’s plenty…

Polzeath Beach – Parenting Twins Article

I couldn’t believe that it was October and we went for a dip in the sea! Polzeath is a fair way away from us but I love going there as you just park up on the beach. When I’m on my own with the girls it can be difficult getting us…
