On Friday we all descended upon Center Parcs, Whinfell Forest for our 10th annual Winter Wonderland. We first visited when Joe was 11 weeks old and have been every year since. It just wouldn’t be Christmas without Center Parcs. 5 Years ago our good friends Ruth and Darren joined us with their family, a year later Jacks friend Harry.
Its great; between our families our children range between 8 right up to 18. Despite the huge age gap they still all want to come every year. I am not sure there are many locations where we could persuade them all to come along. Center Parcs is the perfect place for families and friends to get together, spend quality time and chill.
It works so well, as although we book lodges next door to each other, we still get to spend family time alone with our own families. Because we are next door Joe and Finn are able to explore and build dens together behind the lodge whilst we are able to enjoy a mulled wine sat by the open fire whilst watching the boys play in the woods. I love the fact that as the lodges have lots of space around them, the boys have the freedom to play out, yet never go out of view.
