Our Father's Day Adventure

When I asked my husband what he would like to do for Father's Day this year he suggested us all going to Sherwood Pines Forest Park for a long walk through the forest and a picnic, so on Sunday even though the weather looked a little dodgy we loaded up our picnic basket with tasty treats and off we went.

We'd arranged to meet Ian's family there so that we could all spend some time together and we had a really lovely day. There was a Gruffalo Trail which Riley loved and we spotted the animals from the Gruffalo stories as we wandered through the forest finding little play parks along the way.

In typical British fashion just as we set up our picnic it started to rain but we quickly moved over to some covered picnic benches and enjoyed a yummy lunch. The kids had so much fun and we really enjoyed our day there, also for when the kids are older there's Go Ape which looks amazing and some brilliant bike trails so it's definitely somewhere we'll visit again.

 What did you get up to on Father's Day?
