A lay in? Breakfast in bed? Afternoon pint?
Are these on your wish list for Father’s Day this year?
No… nor mine. Now, if I happen to stumble across any of the above, I will of course smile politely and begrudgingly accept!
However, what I really want this year is to spend time with the two-little people that have given me the greatest title I will ever possess: Daddy.
Along with that, we’ll be sharing our time to thank our own Fathers. Father’s Day brings the same struggle as Christmas, Mother’s Day and Easter in our house. How do we fit everyone into one day, and remain respectful of our siblings that also want to spend time with the
With difficulty, is the unfortunate answer.
In an ideal world, everyone would get along and be available for one mass day out or celebration. This is rarely suitable for everyone. So, we will probably, after much debate, do the same routine as previous years. A day out with our little family, and then visits later in the day to our Dads. If, that is, plans haven’t already been made with our grandparents or brothers
I’m not overly precious about where we visit, as long as I’m with my favourite people…but here are a few suggestions of places I would recommend visiting in Norfolk: One of my favourite memories of a day out with our daughter was a trip to The Dinosaur Adventure Park. You can join in the soft play, enjoy a picnic or my personal favourite, search for dinosaurs along the dinosaur trail (I like to arm us all with small binoculars and compasses to really get into the role!) Last year, Dads were let in for free, so look out for that offer! I believe Bewilderwood usually have a similar offer.
Head slightly further north in Norfolk and you can visit the Muckleborough Military Collection. Lots of vehicles and weaponry to investigate providing fun for the whole family, but special treats are available for Dad with the chance to drive a tank!
Travel west from Norwich, and Pettitts Animal Adventure Park isn’t far away. There are animals, crazy golf, rides and live shows. Entrance fee is very reasonable and all the rides at the fair are included in the ticket price. I would definitely visit the gift shop on the way out for some fudge for the journey home! Humpty Dumpty Brewery is conveniently located next door, providing tours and of course, a shop to treat Dad!
