    Twilight Christmas Experience at Colchester Zoo

    We haven’t visited Colchester Zoo for a while now. When our Zoo passes run our a few years ago we didn’t renew them. At the time Darren’s shift work meant we wouldn’t be able to use them as much as we wanted to. When I got the email about the Twilight Christmas Experience at Colchester Zoo I knew I wanted to take the children to the event. It mentioned viewing the Christmas lights on the land train. Ethan loves Christmas lights so I knew he would enjoy it. Having visited Santas grotto at Colchester Zoo numerous times and taking Ethan to the breakfast with Santa event. I knew we wouldn’t…

    Colchester Pumpkin Patch Foxes Farm 2018

    We first discovered the Colchester Pumpkin Patch in 2016. It was the first time we visited Foxes Farm and the children really enjoyed it. We visited last year too just before our adventure to Disney World. The bad weather put us off visiting last weekend. We decided to visit this weekend and the weather was amazing. There were some changes to the Pumpkin Patch this year. To enter the corn maze you now have to pay £3.00. I’m guessing this is the price per person. We didn’t worry about going in the maze so didn’t pay this fee. There were food stalls there this year which is what is was…
