What to do in the School Holidays

I know it's a couple of weeks late, but some are only just ending their 'Easter' holidays!

We took the boys on some great days out! First trip was to Thomas the Tank Engine Land at Drayton Manor. Expensive, but worth every penny just to see their excitement!

Oldest son took me on the roller coasters for a treat!?

We took a picnic that we ate in the car, but the weather stayed reasonable and we all had a great day out.
Next up was the Butterfly Farm at Long Sutton. We visited with my Mum and Dad who had great fun teaching the boys how to use the zip wire LOL

This is a great place to visit - great value for money and loads to see and do. The childrens playground is wonderful, with three great slides, a wooden fort, the zip wire and lovely, solidly built and well maintained climbing frames. I recommend taking a picnic, even if it is cold and wet - they have two long polytunnels kitted out with picnic tables. Lovely and warm on a chilly but sunny day!
There are loads of exotic birds and animals, including a racoon family; the indoor tropical butterfly house is amazing and the real treat - a demo of the birds of prey. We had a beautiful owl sat on the seat next to us and the buzzard nearly took my Dads hair off, clipping his head with it's wing tips!
