Our Summer 2019 Bucket List Update Week One

Last week I posted here Our Summer 2019 Bucket List. Like I said in the post I am awful at bucket lists so I really wanted to make sure I tick off most if not all of our list. Here is our week 1 update.

Go Plane Spotting 
Last week we headed down to London and we were staying right by Heathrow airport. We saw so many planes taking off and landing.  Little J enjoyed trying to read the name of the planes. We saw quite a few Qatar planes and they were huge.

Ride A Rollercoaster 
Our adventures last week were all about rollercoasters as we visited Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park and finished with Legoland. It was a crazy 5 days and we rode so many rides our heads were spinning.

Eat An Ice Cream 
Wherever we go there is always time for an ice cream

Stay In A Hotel
We stayed in a cottage at the end of the school term up in the lakes, then we stayed in the Alton Towers Hotel then when we drove down south we stayed at a Premier Inn.

Spend Time With Family
When we visited the lakes we went as a huge family. 14 of us in total. It was a lovely few days and has become a family tradition now.

Take A Boat Ride
Lovely boat ride on Lake Windermere from Ambleside to Haverthwaite

Do Something New
Even though we have been Merlin Pass Holders for years and years we have never visited Chessington World of Adventures until last week. It's such a great theme park with something for everyone. The boys loved it.

Not bad for our first week. Looking forward to ticking more off the list.
