We had a lovely day out yesterday at moors valley country park. Its so nice there and so much to do, even as busy as it was being the summer holidays it didn’t feel ‘too much’ like I have been finding some places recently.
We got there nice and early and headed straight off on the Percy the park keeper trail (loved that book as a kid), where we had to follow the arrows and find logs that had the questions on and put the answers in our trail card, at the end you take it back and get a sticker, was great fun more age appropriate for 3+ I’d say but we all enjoyed looking out for the clues and answering the questions.

I of course took it far more seriously than the children who after the first 10 just wanted to look for the arrows and go on a bear hunt so we didn’t quite finish god damn – I wanted my sticker!
So after that we went off to find somewhere for a picnic and settled on a green with picnic tables unfortunately all the spots by trees were taken so I had to create a bit of shade for baby Lottie with the pushchair and various things piled on top, she was happy though.
As usual because we had far to much stuff with us Ryan and the girlys went off on the train and me and Lottie stayed with our bits, had a play and selfie or two she’s just so damn bootiful how can I not!
And then we hit the park how cool is this swing, to be honest I‘m not sure what its design purpose is or if it meant to have two children in it but didn’t break so its fine! Saved me running between two swings to push them, they thought it was hilarious in there even if in this picture they look bored stiff (getting a bit sick of my constant picture taking I thinks).
It was absolutely baking though after a couple more hours the heat was got the better of us so we headed back to the car only to find they we’re doing face painting how could we not. After the longest wait ever we left for home with a little lady bird in tow. Bella did have a bumble bee which of course she smeared across her face approximately 30 seconds after it was finished.
All in all a lovely day out moors valley is a great place to visit your bound to find something you want to do at any age.
