Blizzard Beach and Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Disney World

Blizzard beach almost vertical waterslide, Summit Plummet and the chairlift up to it.

As I write this, J and I have just returned from an amazing family holiday to Florida. We spent most of our time exploring the wonders of Disney World including Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Blizzard Beach and Disney Springs which has given us incredible memories to treasure forever.

 

Orlando is in tropical Florida and therefore the weather is hot, but it is also rather stormy. June to November is the traditional storm season, but we were there in early May and had 4 days where it rained at some point and when it rains in Florida it is torrential. So we decided that where could be better to spend a rainy day than a water park where you will be getting wet anyway? So when the rain came down we headed to Disney’s wintery water park , Blizzard Beach. It doesn’t seem that many other people were quite so sensible though as the car park was almost deserted and during one visit we had the place almost to ourselves, which was incredible. I asked a staff member and she said they had less than 100 people in the park in the busy period of that day and by the end there were only a few of us, whereas on an average sunny weekday out of school holidays there would be 1000 people in the park. So we made the most of this and hubby went on almost every single water slide and didn’t have to queue once.

Choosing a Theme for a Boy’s Bedroom

Theme for a Boy's Bedroom - DecoWall World Map wall sticker with animals, transport, landmarks and flags on it.

We moved into our new house 6 months ago and have grand plans for it. Our first priority is J’s bedroom. The window needs replacing, the radiator needs to be modernised, the wallpaper needs to be stripped and the laminate flooring removed. We will be left with a blank canvas and we want to get it right. We have looked at the best boy’s beds on the market and we have been going back and forth trying to choose a theme for a boy’s bedroom that we are all happy with and one which will last without needing to be redecorated in a couple of years time.

Father’s Day 2018

J and daddy racing on the GoKarts at a local farm park on Father's Day.

Unlike Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is often hot and sunny and so for the past 3 years hubby has delighted in lots of Father’s Day fun with picnics, beach trips, steam train rides, garden chilling out time and walks out and about. This year we are renovating our house so we decided to keep things low key and had planned on a New Forest visit with walking, sports, biking and a picnic on the agenda, but of course this year the weather decided to not play ball and we decided to change our plans and head to a local farm park instead where dad’s were free for Father’s Day.
