Hot Day @ Barmouth Wales

 I am very late with this post, but really wanted to share!

Hot Day @ Barmouth Wales We don’t get treated very often with the nice weather here, in England. Therefore, 19th of July, when the weather temperatures jumped up all of a sudden, Edward took a day off work and we decided to visit Barmouth sandy beaches in Wales!

Barmouth is 2.5 hours drive from our home, I’ve heard it is beautiful, but we haven’t been there before.

 Due to Luka going to her school trip to Alton Towers resort that day, it was only four of us going – Edward, Harry, Daniella and I.

Driving to Barmouth was pretty impressive itself! Wales is beyond beautiful! The greenness, hills, sheep, farm houses – it was rather great!

Even though Harry got a little bit annoyed towards the end of our journey, but it was so worth a wait. The town of Barmouth is cozy, full of restaurants, quirky shops. Plenty attractions for children and most importantly, has its extraordinary seaside! We were finally there!

We spent nearly the entire day on the beach. Children enjoyed the sand and the water, which was actually so clear (but pretty cold). I was trying to get some tan on my fair colour skin while Edward was trying not to get tanned ha ha. 🙂 We had fish & Chips for lunch – was GOOD! Continue reading Hot Day @ Barmouth Wales

Grandparents Visiting & Trentham Monkey Forest

Last weekend we had Edward’s parents visiting for Harry’s first birthday. They travelled by train from London on Saturday and stayed over in our house for a night. Kids were over the moon to have grandparents around and not to forget- they brought a huge and tasty personalised birthday cake for Harry!

We didn’t have a clue he was coming and it was not even 9 am! Jim arrived here by car, leaving London at 5am! What a lovely surprise! 🙂

The weather on Sunday was beautiful, therefore we had decided to visit Trentham Monkey Forest.

The price to enter Trentham Monkey Forest is £8 for adults and £6 for children (3-14 years old). The place is lovely – cafe, playgrounds, picnic area, walking paths. If the weather is nice, could easily spend the whole day there with children!

Grandparents Visiting & Trentham Monkey ForestWe didn’t know what to expect at the beginning, we thought we will have to look for monkeys hiding from us, so when we saw the very first monkey sleeping high up in the tree, we started taking pictures immediately! But only few meters away, there were so many of them! They can walk free wherever they want, and they are not scared of people at all. Monkeys eat, play, fight with each other. It was amazing to watch!

Them ones with little babies I loved the most! How adorable is that! It is obvious, they care for their children so much! Monkeys are really great mothers, they really are!

Check out our video- vlogging by Luka this time – and see it yourself! Next time if you are unsure where to go, jut go Trentham Monkey Forest, it was 100% worth a visit! Trentham Monkey Forest website is HERE.

Family Vlogs Category Introduction

I have decided to add one more category to my blog- FAMILY VLOGS. We love taking camera wherever we go. New videos are piling up- many of them are not edited or never put together. I am hoping, that my new Family Vlogs category over my blog will give me a tiny bit more motivation on putting all recorded memories together. I really hope you will find it interesting too!

Honestly, I am far from PRO at making/editing videos. But I do my best to make it bearable. I have a fair collection of family videos on my Youtube channel by now – starting from few years back, when Daniella was a baby, then when Harry was born and several pretty recent ones. If you would like to check them out, you are welcome to visit my Youtube Channel HERE.

In this post I am sharing our few most recent videos that you might have already seen. If you haven’t, check them out and let me know what you think! x

The video below is from one of our beautiful weekends. We visited a lovely place, called The Heights of Abraham in the Peak District. It was a great day out with family and friends – what a beautiful place! We are certainly going back there as soon, as the weather gets better – there is loads more to explore!

Another video below is called Daniella’s Bank Holiday Weekend. Daniella is now 3.5 years old. Our little girl is normally very shy. But recently I realised, that she is pretty confident in front of the camera – not like her mummy at all! Therefore, I prefer filming Daniella rather than filming myself and she seems to love it! 🙂 Continue reading Family Vlogs Category Introduction
