After a busy Christmas day it was lovely to escape to the haven of Center Parcs. As you will know I love going to the tranquil setting of the Sherwood Forest resort. This is a break that I booked earlier in the year to escape some of the hurtful memories that I knew Christmas would bring.
This was our first break away as a family, just the five of us. It was lovely having the undivided time together.
The night before we left the snow started so we were a little worried how the weather would be the following day. Thankfully it hadn't settled at home, however the closer we got the Sherwood Forest the more snow there was. It made Center Parcs look truly magical and the children loved it. This was the twins first real experience of snow as last time we had any they were too small to remember.
On Sunday, despite the cold and ice, we decided to get some bikes. That is one of the things that we love about visiting Center Parcs. It was such a cold day but we all enjoyed cycling around the snowy resort and stopping half way for a hot meal certainly helped.
Sadly the days flew by all too quickly and it was time to come home. However the little break was fantastic.
Here is our weekend in pictures...
As always I am sharing my Point and Shoot post with two lovely ladies, Em from Snowing Indoors and Aby from You Baby Me Mummy.
