The Start Of Our Swimming Journey!

Its been a busy weekend for our baby boy, he started his swimming journey on Saturday. If you don't know already we are part of this years Baby Swimologists for Konfidence and so we will be documenting this journey with you and I am so excited to share with you the first lesson we had. We let Daddy take him in for the first time as with our 1st child I did all of the swimming lessons with her when she was a baby and as we now have weekend lessons (how great that Water Babies offer weekend times) Daddy gets to experience it too which is nice. The lessons are in the hydrotherapy pool which means its like a warm bath, which is perfect for babies... and us parents too! We used a disposable nappy with the Konfidence NeoNappy on top which is the policy for Water Babies to double up in the nappy area and off he went into the water. 

Driving To Disneyland Paris!

We recently visited Disneyland Paris and had such a great time, this is the first time we have ever driven to Disney and I thought I'd share our thoughts and experience about it so if you are considering it this may be useful for you. The reason we decided to drive this time was because of how much stuff we had to take - travelling with 3 young children, one being just 3 months old at the time required a lot of stuff! We also was doing the whole trip on a budget and this was the cheapest way to travel, it also meant we had the freedom to stop when we wanted, just so much easier with younger children. 

So how long did it take us...
It took us 2 hours to drive to the Euro Tunnel, 35 minutes on the train and then its about 3 hours from the train to Disneyland. With check in/passport control and a couple short stops it took us about 6 hours. Which does sound a lot but last time with the Euro Star we had to drive to the train, park, check in, board, hand our luggage in at the train station etc and that all added together can take the same amount of time or more! We got to Disneyland at 1pm and on the way home we left the park at 4:30pm and was home for 11pm that night.
