Our Visit to BrickLive 2017

Our Visit to BrickLive 2017

Back in December 2015 we attended our first BrickLive event at the ExCel in London and it was safe to say that the kids were in LEGO heaven that day. When I saw that BrickLive was heading to Birmingham NEC and coincided with our visit to see Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure, I decided to arrange a visit to make a full day of it. Over the summer we were lucky enough to see the Great Brick Safari on location at Marwell Zoo, so it was a treat to see it again at BrickLive. Made with Over 2 million LEGO®… Continue Reading “Our Visit to BrickLive 2017”

Fast forward a week and he randomly… Continue Reading “A Trip to Birmingham to see Ed Sheeran at the Barclaycard Arena”

A Day Out at Drayton Manor

Thomas Land

Despite being almost 3 hours away from home, Drayton Manor is a place that all the family love to visit as it caters for all ages with Thomas Land for the little ones and adrenalin rides for the teens. Last weekend we were invited up to the park to try out their new VertiGO high ropes activity which you can read about by clicking the link. It is safe to say that Isaac adored the course, especially the ziplines which he did again and again, whilst Eliza and Sebastian practised their balance on the VertiGO Tots course. Once we had… Continue Reading “A Day Out at Drayton Manor”
