Free entertainment is great, especially if it incorporates fresh air and exercise at the same time!

The kids love riding their bikes.  Jess still has stabilisers but she has a great pace and her confidence is growing each time we go out.  Lately we practised braking for slowing down and of course stopping.

An ice cream stop before continuing with our bike ride.There is a gorgeous ice cream parlour on the seafront but the bargain bods that we are, we got a 3 pack from the local store and it cost less that one scoop of parlour ice cream.  Doing something like this is still a special treat for the girls but costs a fraction of what it could have cost.  With a family it’s good to make savings here and there!  Both girls were shattered after the huge bike ride!

We have also enjoyed lots of home ed and there was a local home ed family that arranged for a few families to have a picnic and help plant trees, well saplings any least!  It was a glorious sunny day and great to be on a farm for the day.

Abi’s rock climbing has now moved times and coincides with soft play for the little kids so everyone has a bit of fun!
