We will also take a mountain of food

In particular snacks

Adventures make us hungry!

I am so looking forward to exploring Bluestone

We plan to swim as early as we can every morning

Then head off site to explore

Returning mid afternoon to enjoy what Bluestone has to offer

We want to try out all the play areas

The nature trail

Spend some time at Camp Smokey

But we really want to get out to Tenby

Get a boat to Caldey Island

And escape to Freshwater West Beach

In the hope of finding Dobby!

With four children

All their belongings

And a list of places to explore

We have to be very careful not to lose things along the way

One simple solution is to label EVERYTHING

Especially shoes that might be removed for softplay


William is forever losing his glasses


Water bottles

We also use water resistant kids labels

On our armbands and goggles

If going to a busy pool

I love a label

And my motto is

Label it don’t lose it

Especially when far away from home

What do you label when home and away?

If you are in need of labels

Why not check out Sticker You

For custom stickers, labels and more

I am off to make a start on my packing!
