A fun family day out at Crystal Palace Park!

I feel like I have got so much to tell you about our summer! We have been very busy juggling work and enjoying some quality family time.

But whilst it's fresh in my mind, I will tell you about today! 

I have been wanting to go to Crystal Palace Park for ages, it's about an hour from us and from what I had heard it was a really good, free, day out! 

So this morning we packed a picnic and set off, not really knowing what we would find when we got there! 

The first thing we found was a lovely farm (which was free!) it was part of a college. We saw a pig, with her piglets, some ponies, some goats, llamas, ducks, geese, ferrets, sheep, birds, and lots of reptiles! 

Then we walked round the park hunting for dinosaurs! There were huge models that were actually built in the Victorian era, and it was really interesting to see how scientists imagine dinosaurs to look has changed over the years. 

Chester spotted the boating lake so we thought why not, but of course Millie and I were the passengers! 

We then stumbled across the play park, which was of course dinosaur themed and totally awesome! 

We treated the kiddies to coloured ice creams and wandered over to watch people race their giant remote controlled cars around a track, which both children would of happily watched all day! 

We spent the rest of the day exploring everything else that the park has to offer. It really was a fantastic family day! It was free (apart from the pedalo and the ice creams we brought) and kept the children entertained for the whole day. I really love days like this, and am very pleased that I can add Crystal Palace Park to my list of places were love.

I hope you are having a great bank holiday weekend, what have you been up to so far?
