Family Days Out Round-up: Snowdrops, castles & puddle jumping!

Hello and welcome to a slightly belated family days out round-up post. We have had a run of sickness in our house which knocked us for six, but fingers crossed everyone is healthy again now.

February is almost been and gone in the blink of an eye, but with half term plonked in the middle it seems lots of you have been getting out and about with your families.

Spring is definitely on its way and many of you have been out hunting for the first flower of the year – snowdrops. Renovation Bay-Bee found some at Welford Park, as did Over 40 Mum to One, Stopping at Two saw a stunning carpet of them at Rococo Park and Over 40 Mum to One also found some at Evenley Wood Garden.

Snow has been a bit thin on the ground this winter, with only a few areas of the country being treated to a decent covering. Luckily we managed to find some at Glen Doll in Scotland and Susan K Mann has been out having fun on snow scooters with her family.

Exploring the great outdoors has been popular this month too. Emily and Indiana went for a walk around Scotney Castle, The Gingerbread House explored Nunney Castle, we braved a treacherous path in search of Reekie Linn Waterfall, Little Hearts Big Love and Time to Craft both visited Stonehenge and The Princess and the Pickle explored Staunton Country Park.

I have to say that Loving Life with the Little Ones had my favourite post of the month at the Puddle Jumping Championships at the Wildlife and Wetlands Centre. I wish I had known about it as it looks fabulous.

If you have any half term posts to add to the round-up, please leave a comment with your link!

    Great post and everyone having fun outdoors! Sounds great! We went to Glen Doll on Saturday to celebrate hubby’s birthday with a little walk and picnic and found the teeniest bit of snow still… it didn’t last long with our 5yo itching to have a snowball fight!!! 🙂
