So I don't know about where you live but in Leeds half term was a bit of a wash out. Not ideal when you have a very active toddler who needs to run off steam every day.
Most of the week was spent in soft play hell or child friendly cafes - if such a paradox exists.
So when the blue sky appeared we decided to go for a day out to cute little town of Knaresborough.
As you can see The Toddler was very keen to have a good run around.
He did so well walking all around the cobbled streets, up really steep hills and then when we were five minutes from the car he said, "daddy carry!"
We sought refuge in Subway for a while to feed The Baby and warm up as it was freezing.
We also looked in a few charity shops as The Belgian is into finsding good vinyls for the vinyl player I got him for his 30th birthday.
The grounds around the castle were so pretty. The flowers gave us some hope for spring.
We all enjoyed admiring the views and The Toddler got really excited watching the trains pass over the bridge. He is very into 'choo choos' right now.
And as this cheeky smile on his face shows he enjoyed the clear blue skies and the chance to run around and explore.
We had been planning to do the Sculpture Trail but it was really cold and all of our hands were like ice and The Toddlers nose was red with cold. The Baby was snuggled up warmly in her carry cot and snuggled in several blankets so she slept soundly the whole day out.
Where do you enjoy going on a family day out?
