Hortons Animal Farm becomes Hobble Downs

Hobble Downs


I absolutely love going and exploring new places and Hortons used to be a favourite haunt of mine and the kids and now its under gone a major face lift and become Hobble Downs... I am so excited - It LOOKS AMAZING!!! Hortons is where I took my Michaela the day before Tristan was born and 2 days after my mother arrived on holiday... I remember being HUGE!!! Seriously HUGE !!! I picked up 20kg with my son and he was posterior - so he lay right on my spine... I remember thinking these are my last alone memories with my baby girl and I would soon have to share my affections with another baby - I almost felt like I was going to be cheating on her ! I felt terribly guilty the first few months and found it incredibly hard to split my affections between my new born and my 18 month old... But all is good now and almost 2 years on - we are a happy little adventurous family unit... and Hobble Downs looks like a great adventure place ... I AM SO EXCITED !!!! We have anxiously been awaiting the opeing and its almost here ... 18 JULY 2012. 

The plans 

The completed adventure play ground - Cool !!!

Teddy Bears Picnic

Our First Teddy Bears Picnic 




Our first teddy bears picnic for local mum's was a huge success... even though it rained a little we where sheltered by some lovely trees in the beautiful Pheasantry an protected area from the big deer and dogs inside the beautiful Bushy Park ... 

We had a really good turn out considering the weather was awful and hopefully next half term we will have more mum's to meet and more kiddies to play with... 
The kids loved it ... in keeping with the whole Jubilee theme - we played a few games with kids and had some cakes and other snacks to share ... a nice chat with local mum's and I felt there was a real sense of getting into the community and meeting other parents... 


Beautiful rivers in Pheasantry - feeding the ducks is an essential part of every visit...

Some of our Teddies from the Picnic... TO CUTE...

If you would like to join in next half term for Meet the Local mum's teddy bears picnic feel free to contact me ...
