So Christmas day is nearly upon us and we have been busy not just with preparations but with the charity we are part of Special Friends. The charity is for disabled children and their families, we do lots of activities throughout out the year together and this is a little snippet of us out and about this Christmas.
Visiting Santa at Cattle country, the children had a train ride to the grotto where Santa was waiting with a gift for each child then a train ride back and a play in the soft play.
Then we had a trip to Clearwell Caves over in Wales, well worth a visit for Christmas if you can get there it was magical! We followed the story of the Hungry Polar Bear through the Christmas lit caverns on route we bumped into Santa again, we stopped at his toy store to choose a present.
Here is part of the story we followed through the caverns, the hungry polar bear.
Oh and in the middle of the caves there is a little underground market and snack bar for food and goodies, I picked up some lovely tree decorations and a spotty bowl which is now in my kitchen.
Then we went ice skating at the open air ice rink at the mall, it was a early morning skate we were there from 9am, it was lovely. My 2 sons gave up after one lap of the ice rink, where as my daughter pictured here was hard to get off the ice she loved it and is a very determined little skater.
Today we went off to Avon Valley Farm Park for a play in the soft play and one last meet up with Santa before he is off to do the most important job of the year. We have also had our big Christmas party which was lovely and we shall be off enjoying more days out after Christmas which the kids cant wait for.
