A Norfolk Break…

So if you follow my IG {@rachael_frances} you would have seen on my stories that the boys & I went away for 2 days to Norfolk with my lovely friend Sarah & her cute baby Darcie! It was so lovely to have a few days off #momlife cooking, cleaning & riding up the house…ah it was total bliss for 48 hours haha! Sure at first I thought to myself what the hell am I doing taking a toddler & a baby away for a few days on my own {had a minor heart attack} then I just sucked it up and told myself to get on with it…& it was great! Also I felt so happy that I managed coping on my own with the boys, it may sound silly but usually I’m always out with josh or my mum or my sister so I always have help around me so this was a good achievement for me!

So we stayed in a lovely little lodge on the Hunstanton sea front in a place called Searles, it was great for the kids so it was great for us! There was lots for them to do & they had evening entertainment with hartbeeps which Jude & Darcie loved!

The first day we just stayed in the facility & used the amazing splash pool {I dont have any photos as no photography was allowed} & then we went for dinner & enjoyed the kids entertainment then we went off to bed to recover from our long 2 hour drive! {i have a separate post about traveling alone with 2 kids in the car/train/plane for a long time} but the car ride was a doodle on the way there & on the way back I was blessed & they both slept the whole 2.5 hours home 🙌🏻 #winningatmomlife haha 🤣 also I don’t know what it was but that night Jude slept ALL night long & Jesse only woke up once!! {think I need to move there}

Anyways, On the Tuesday we went to sea life at Hunstanton which Jude & Darcie loved! They had penguins & sharks, they also got to stroke a star fish & feed the Packu fish!

We then went from there over to Norfolk Lavender which was beautiful, but unfortunately we didn’t get to see the lavender gardens because you can’t do those sort of adult things with kids 🙈 but we went to the farm & soft play which is adjacent to the gardens & it was BEAUTIFUL! I wish I lived right near it! I would definitely go back again. I would probably drive 2 hours just to go there! It was great, super clean, really well looked after, so many things for the kids to do inside & outside & the staff were all so lovely and friendly and the food was great too! Jude didn’t want to leave bless him!! If you live that way or are planning on going that way then definitely check out Farmer Fred’s Soft play & Farm Park! You won’t regret it! It’s a fantastic day out for the whole family!

Check out my photos below to see what we got up to!
