Eliza’s Climbing Party at Rockreef

Rockreef

Can you believe Eliza turns 7 this week? Having a January birthday can mean organising a party can be a tricky business, as many local attractions close for the winter months and the weather is rubbish.

Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure with Ocean Florida

We are massive Disney fans in our house and one of our Christmas traditions is heading into London to watch Disney On Ice at The O2. This year, however, we did it in style thanks to Ocean Florida who invited us to join them in their box and see the show.

Not only was the VIP area much quieter, but there were huge canvas pictures of… Continue Reading “Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure with Ocean Florida”
