Castles, cathedrals and campsites

Finally, my annual summer holiday, 2 weeks when I get to kick back, forget work, walk away from the emails and reconnect 24/7 with those around me. Oh yeah bring it on!

If you have followed my DadTalk blog for a while you might know that for the last few years our jollies have meant a week at Nana’s or a staycation. However this year we really wanted to do something different so From August 6th to the 19th the family hit Norfolk; week one we house sat and in week two we went glamping. (if you ever meet Mrs Harvey’s  Dad you will understand the difference between camping and glamping!). So  we went camping with mates.

In the build-up we had great fun as a family working out where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. The boys chose the Sealife Centre in Great Yarmouth, Mrs HD wanted to check out the Castle and the Cathedral in Norwich and me; well I wanted beach, beach, beach!

We started this year really wanting a holiday that would allow us to bond a fresh as a family. A holiday that got us away from the norm and gave us new experiences as a family that would make great memories for the boys. If I’m honest I thought that would mean having to go abroad or hit somewhere exciting like Euro Disney but to be honest if this summer’s holiday has taught me one thing – it’s the fact that when it comes to new experiences and creating memories all that’s required is for me to step out my comfort zone and simply make something happen.

Here then are the memories that stand out
