Our 2018 Days Out Bucket List

Every year my friend Joanne from Charliemoos, does a bucket list of days out with her children at new year.

I always say I am going to do it with mine, but have never got around to it until now.

It was quite amusing hearing them chat about where they want to visit. Sebastian tended to opt for places he already knows, whereas Isaac and Eliza have started to think out of the box and suggest new things to do and places to visit.

Sebastian (4):

See the dinosaurs at Paultons Park
