Our Little Brighton Adventure

Our Little Brighton Adventure

Our latest road trip adventure led us down to Brighton. Girls were super excited to spend some time away from London and explore the lovely seaside town. We also wanted to cheer daddy when taking part in the London to Brighton cycle on Sunday, and celebrate his Father’s Day the way he loves, in the saddle!

Brighton is not that far away from us ( about 80 miles), so it should normally take just over an hour or so. But the reality is different. If you have ever done the same journey via M25, you know it can take much longer! It took me 8 hours once when Isabelle was a toddler, and that was when I learnt to always have plenty of healthy snacks, water and change of clothes with me when hitting any motorway even for short adventure journeys!

Feed Their Playful Nature

Last week Britmums got in touch to take part in their latest Feed Their Playful Nature campaign. We were sent some of Munch Bunch Organic child-friendly, affordable and diverse range of fromage frais to try out. Both my girls are super creative and very playful, so I knew this would be a fun experience for us all.

Olivia and Isabelle are natural jokers (not like me) and got very excited when I suggested making-up jokes while being stuck on M25 and munching on some Munch Bunch Organic strawberry pouches. I started with a joke to get them in the mood, and they quickly followed with some fantastic creations.

“Where do cows go on Saturday nights?
To the MOOO-vies!”

When visiting Brighton we paid a visit to the Sealife Brighton as we all love sea creatures. It is ideally situated by the Brighton Pier, by the seafront, and we spent about an hour and 15 minutes there. It was full of lovely activities for children to do while learning new facts about sea life.

Girls were given a Sealife passport to collect stamps from 9 stations that were spread through the exhibition. They loved touching the starfish and walking through the underwater tunnel with sharks and rays above their heads. At the end, they received a medal for completing the sealife adventure challenge and I am sure we will be back when in Brighton again.

On Sunday morning we got up early and headed down to the beach. The weather was not great, super windy and quite cold for this time of the year, but we still enjoyed a nice stroll along the sea towards the finish line of the London to Brighton cycle.

Girls were anxiously waiting for their dad to appear in the last bend. Olivia was getting a bit hungry, but I still had 2 pouches of Munch Bunch Organic in my bag.

Not only they are tasty according to the girls, they also loved all the creative ideas you can find on their official Facebook page. We have kept our empty pouches and will be getting more creative with them soon.
