Reading With Toddlers – What We’ve Enjoyed This Week

When I was a kid, I loved reading. I always had my head in a book and even now I still enjoy it. I want to pass the love of books on to my children so reading is a big thing for us.

Pumpkin Patch at Cammas Hall Farm

Cammas Hall fruit farm, on the Essex/Hertfordshire border, is a great place to go for a day out with the kids or just to pick fresh fruit. In the summer they have so many berries to choose from and I love their strawberries. In October they have their pumpkin patch ready which is good fun, the kids love it and you can pick your own pumpkin for Halloween.
