I have written about our weekend away in two parts- you can read all about part 1, our day at the seaside here, but here is part 2 of our adventures to the West Country..
LO loved just wandering about looking at all the different animals. There's a mixture of indoor and outdoor viewing areas.
I love this photo of Mr F and LO. They're so close at the moment, especially as I spend a lot of my time feeding Little L. These two have developed a really special daddy son bond and it's so lovely to watch.
The aquarium bit was LO's favourite part of the whole zoo, especially as there was a Dory and a Nemo fish. Little L also loved the aquarium and kicked his legs frantically every time a fish swam past.
After lunch we took a little detour through an area of the city called Stokes Croft. My sister in law wondered why we wanted to go there as on the surface it does look quite run down on the main street, but it's famous for it's long stretch of independent shops and coffee shops and also it's street art. I looked on a map to find the best streets, and we found it best to part along a side street and then have a little wander around. It was really fun to look down the side streets spotting which pictures we could find. My favourites were the pink panther and this gorgeous carnival mask- it's just so bright and colourful. We found these in the Wilder Street area if you're in Bristol and wanted to have a look.
On Monday, we headed out towards Wells where my sister in law is from. It's a truly stunning part of the world and it's a shame we were only there a day and a half because I could easily spend a lot longer there, just relaxing and taking in these breathtaking views.
LO had a lot of fun running about on the grass outside the cathedral before it was time to head home later that day. Even though it was just a short visit, it was a really memorable one, especially as it was our first proper trip away with Little L as well.
I have made a little video of our long weekend away to Somerset if you fancy a look...
