Fun Family Day’s Out

Fun Family Day's Out

Memory Making With Family

Like most families we enjoy nothing more than fun family day’s out. We are an active family and enjoy the great outdoors. We are always looking for fun, cheap family activities to enjoy. Nothing beats quality time together as a family.

Here Are A Few Of The Things We Are Currently Enjoying Together:

London – Being a family living in North London we often enjoy a family day out in London. Purchasing a day travel card and then go off exploring our home city. Visiting galleries, museums, dungeons and Londons must-see attractions. We had seen stunning views of London from up high on the Coca-Cola London eye. We have seen over 20 iconic landmarks and sites from the Thames whilst travelling via a speedboat with Thames Rockets, who offer speedboat experiences.

Fun Family Day's Out

We Love Making Memories

Family picnic/games day – When the weather is nice we love to make the most of it. We enjoy loading the car up with our family outdoor adeventurous games. Loading the cool box with a nice picnic, and then head off for a day full of family fun. A Picnic in the park with family whilst enjoying the great outdoors and a few competitive games. Having a laugh whilst making lovely memories to cherish forever is pricelss.

A day at the seaside – Seaside trips are one of our family favourites. Where better to meet up with family and enjoy a day filled with sun, sand and sea. A day filled with beach games followed by a nice family fish and chip dinner is just perfect.

Our Boy’s Love Action And Activity Day’s

An activity day – Activity day’s such as paintballing are brilliant action packed days. With having teen sons who are thrill-seekers and love adrenoline days, this made a great activity day. We enjoyed a paintballing day which we all enjoyed very much. It was an action-packed day out that certainly left us with lots of funny memories.

A family experience day – An experience day such as climb the O2 is perfect for thrill-seekers. Our boy’s are thrill-seekers and this was an awesome experience that we enjoyed together as a family. We conqured the summit together as as a family. We climbed over the O2 and took in some amazing views of London whilst doing so.

Fun Family Day's Out

A competitive day – We really enjoy competitive days/nights out, such as bowling, go karting, golf, foot golf and even getting competitive in our daily step counts. We tend to follow these day’s by enjoying a nice family meal out. Or if we are too knackered then a nice takeaway whilst watching a movie.

A family hobby day – We all have our own hobbies that we enjoy and we all tend to support each other in our much loved hobbies. We have days out where we support each other in our hobbies, such as photography, fishing, football, hiking and even camping trips to go off exploring. Camping trips are a great way to bond as a family and make some awesome memories.

We Really Enjoy Sporty Activities And Adventures

Sporty day – Being an active family we do enjoy sporting activities and competing againts each other. Such as swimming, bike rides, football, racket sports, going to the gym and even enjoying family games such as rounders, disc golf and water sports.

Theme park day – A theme park is the ultimate place to go for thrill-seekers. A place to reach new heights, have vertical drops and enjoy roller coasters. The perfect place to enjoy life in the fast lane from the height and speed from a roller coaster. Or the darkness and horrifying journey into chilling depths of the unknown on the ghost train. A theme park makes a perfect funny family day’s out.

Movie time – We also like to enjoy a night out at the cinema. Luckily enough we live just five minutes away from an Odeon Cinema. So if we have had a busy week at work but still fancy a night out we tend to go for a nice family meal and then on to the cinema. With the new fancy luxury seating we can now relax and recline during our movie. Making it the perfect relaxing night out.

Always Make Time To Check For Discounts

With any family day’s or night out we plan we always try our best to plan ahead if possible. This allows us enough time to help keep any costs down. We do this buy using any work perks, online codes, GroupOn deals, reward points or memberships. Any saving on our days/nights out all help add to the fun.

Christmas Movie Marathon

our christmas movie marathon

 Christmas Movie Marathon

Amongst all the excitement of Christmas we still like to settle down with a good Christmassy movie and some Christmas treats. We all chose what we’d like to watch, close the curtains, put all gadgets to one side and relax. We all love this part of Christmas. We said that we would have a Christmas movie marathon this Christmas and we did. Here is a list of some of our favourite films we really enjoyed.

Scrooge A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens.

Elf – Will Ferrell

A Christmas Carol – Jim Carrey.

Home alone – Macaulay Culkin.

Santa Claus: The Movie – Dudley Moore.

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation – Chevy Chase

We all enjoyed cuddling up together and relaxing with a long list of movies to watch, passing the crisps and chocolates round, laughing, and just enjoying each others company, we do love our movie nights and really look forward to them. We even made homemade Christmas pizza to enjoy with one film, we used up some of our Christmas leftovers to make a pizza which was very nice.

It was lovely to have a couple of days off work over Christmas, the work phone got switched off, emails went un-opened it was bliss. We spend far too much time rushing here there and everywhere throughout our working week so we had planned to have quality time together with no rushing around to do and it was bliss. Our favourite channel to watch over the festive time is Christmas24, there is always something Christmassy to watch to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Making time to spend together was the best gift of all this year, we had an open house Christmas night for any visitors to come then we had the rest of the weekend together and it was perfect.

Did you watch any Christmas movies over Christmas?

Well it has been the Easter holidays after all so that meant one thing, time to have some family fun and put the kids in the driving seat for a change.

I was searching the internet as you do looking up some family fun that would hold a teenage boys attention for more than five minutes, I came across our local boat hire. We have hired a day boat from them a few years back and I remembered that the boys absolutely loved it so I thought this would make for a fun afternoon.

I picked out what boat I would like to hire, I didn’t tell the boys about my plans as they may be teenagers but they still love a surprise, I wanted to keep an eye on the weather as a nice dry day would be perfect for going out on a boat. I thought it would be nice for us all to get outdoors for a while and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine.

I must say put the kids in the driving seat and just watch the smiles grow, we had an amazing time, the weather was beautiful and the kids loved every minute of it.

when we arrived at the boats the boys got so excited and couldn’t wait to get in the boat and get in the driving seat. The boys found it highly funny watching me trying to get the boat going in a straight line, let’s just say “me and boats don’t go”.

The kids in the driving seat was much safer I think than me, they was brilliant and it was so lovely to sit back relax and watch the brotherly love take force, they was helping and guiding each other and even complimenting each other’s driving/steering.

There was only 5 seats in our boat so Ian was walking along side us taking the pictures.

Once we had finished on the boat we sat and enjoyed a lovely picnic together then the boy’s enjoyed some fun in the park.

Can you think of anything that may grab my boy’s attention?
