I am so excited to introduce to you a new series on the blog: #Bristots!
I will be collaborating with fellow Bristol dwellers The Reed family who write over at It’s a Bug’s Life to review toddler friendly family days out here in the South West. Kate, mum to Darcey and a dear friend of mine in real life, makes the most of every weekend as a full-time working mum. The Reeds are a really active and outdoorsy family who are Bristol born and bred and love to get out and explore. We are not originally from Bristol ourselves but have lived here for five years now and feel lucky to be raising a family in such a vibrant and exciting city.
There is always something to do here – a family festival, a park, a community farm – the list is endless. We wanted to get together and explore all that Bristol has to offer and share our findings with other parents. We will be taking it in turns every Sunday to review and share with you a place we have been and hopefully give tips on making a fun family day out at these locations. We are planning some joint expeditions too so look out for Double Trouble! We will be exploring a variety of places – many which don’t cost a penny to go to, as we know full well that every family has a budget. You will find us with flasks, lunch boxes and wet weather gear ready to make the most of our day.
We will be using the hashtag #Bristots so it will be easy for you to find us online and follow along with our journey. We would love to hear from other Bristol parents who may have suggestions of places for us to visit or that they would like us to review. You can leave a comment below or tweet us – we would love to hear from you! Xx
