When I was a child I always remember going to visit Morpeth park every summer and have fond memories of visiting, so now I am a mum myself I take my own children there every summer too. Morpeth park is situated near the town centre of Morpeth in Northumberland, I love it and think it is one of the nicest parks in the North East. The park itself is not very big but there is a large paddling pool for children to go in and a small play area for smaller children and then another area for older children. It is situated in such a lovely well-kept park garden and there is a river running through it where you can feed the ducks and go on the rowing boats.

As it is the summer holidays and the other half was off work and the weather was nice we decided to visit Morpeth park yesterday, it was such a lovely hot day. Morpeth is only a fifteen-minute drive from where we live. We arrived at 11 and the park was already really busy so we headed to the shops and stocked up on drinks and bread to feed the ducks. We also stopped off at the Chinese van which is just outside the park, you have to visit here if you are in Morpeth they do meals for only £3 and they are so nice. We headed to the park and ate our Chinese, Sophia loved the prawn crackers.
The girls then spent some time playing in the park before going to feed the ducks and then Lee and Chloe went on a rowing boat on the river which was only £4 to hire for half an hour. We stopped off at the doughnut van where they make yummy sugar doughnuts before heading to the town centre to look around the shops.

We had a look at the shops and we got some gorgeous things for Sophia and the baby in JoJo Maman Bebe shop and good old Marks and Spencers. We spent most of the day in Morpeth and we had a lovely day, just the four of us. I want to try and spend as much time as I can having nice days out with the girls before baby arrives.
I love family days out creating memories and we have visited a local soft play and went out for a lovely Indian meal with my dad this week too. I have realised that at almost 36 weeks pregnant I need to slow down a bit and I can't really go on all the days out that I want to at the moment, as the heat is awful in late pregnancy and I was in so much pain with my hips and pelvis. But hopefully, we will get some more nice family days out this summer as I love spending time with my girls having fun.
