A Fabulous Day with Friends at the Aquadrome

Our plans for half term got cancelled at the last minute, much to the children’s disappointment (hello tantrums!).  I always find that an impromptu day out makes my little ones really happy, so I decided we would go to the Aquadrome in Rickmansworth this afternoon. We were joined by friends, which made the day even more memorable.

When we left our house at lunchtime, it was 13 degrees outside. 13 degrees on the 18th of February! The wind was bitter, but the sun was shining and we were all in a pretty good mood.

The Aquadrome is a wonderful place. You can park for free and the car park is big enough so you do not end up worrying about not getting a space.

The Café in the Park is one of my favourite places to eat, and you can find out why here.

The walk is really nice for the children, who enjoy feeding the ducks and looking at swans, climbing and jumping in puddles.

After a ten minute walk, we reached the play park, which caters for all age groups, from toddlers to adults, with an outdoor gym.

Wriggly (8 months) is still too little to go on her own in the swings, so she went back to back with her sister and she loved every minute of it. The slide was a bit hit, too!

It really was a glorious day. There was a lot of jumping (and in some cases falling) in muddy puddles, and the tired children we took home as the sun was setting were very happy indeed.

Before I let them sit in the car, they had to take off their wellies, socks, trousers and coats. They were filthy! Thank goodness for heating in the car.

If you judge the success of a day spent outdoors by the mud on a child’s wellies, then our day was as successful as they get! There was as much mud inside the boots as there was on the outside!

    That definitely looked like a lovely day out! And 13 degrees? Wow. Down here in Cornwall, it’s always been below 10. Hopefully it will be warmer soon 😉 #countrykids.

    I used to live near there and work in Maple Cross, but I’ve never been to the Aquadrome. By the state of their clothes and boots, it was a good trip.
