Fun Days Out For The Whole Family

Fun days out can be the bane of any family, especially when young kids are involved. Whether it be planning a day out on a budget, or trying to inspire your children to do great things with educational trips, it can be a tough chore. When looking for a good day out that everyone can enjoy, here is what I look for.


Price:
I’m sure you know the pain of being on a bit of a budget when it comes to getting the family out. There are mouths to feed as well as minds to inspire and keep entertained. Fun days out for kids can be the hardest part of any parent’s job. The best thing to do is to pick something that is not only affordable for your budget, but can be enjoyed by all!

When considering the price; look at what you plan on eating, as this can be the biggest drain on your budget. It could be cheaper to take a picnic for your family - and healthier too!


Activities:
After the price, you need to decide what you want to do with your family. Do you want to get into the great outdoors and do some exploring? Or do you want to do something indoors whilst the rain pours down outside?


You could go out and explore Eilean Donan Castle, or you could go to an indoor play centre and let the kids run themselves tired. Whatever you choose to do to kill some time with the family, make sure it’s fun and enjoyable for all.

Can the whole family get involved?
If the whole family can’t be involved, then what’s the point in going? Right? The best thing about trips to the great outdoors is that everyone can enjoy the walking, climbing and exploring of the day. And the best thing about indoor play centres is that the kids can run riot in a safe environment. And the parents can have fun watching them while sitting back and relaxing over a drink. Whatever you may choose to do, make sure that fun can be had by all. And make sure the kids will be exhausted by the end of the day, allowing you an easy drive home.

Getting there and back:
This has got to be one of the most irritating parts of any day out. How will we all get there? How will we get back? Is it cheaper to take the bus or car? These are all questions that you will likely ask, and should consider. When it comes to the affordability of your day out, ensure that the method of getting about you choose is cost efficient. For instance, maybe taking a cheaper would be better for your purse than taking the family car? Public transport isn’t just better for the environment, but can be an easier, and more affordable, way of getting where you want to go .

These are only some of the things that I keep an eye on when planning a family day out. And if you keep an eye on these factors too, then I’m sure that a fantastic time can be had by all.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
