Easter Fun at Hever Castle

With the weather being good today I decided to dig out the Hever Castle vouchers I had ordered with my Tesco clubcard points. The boys were really excited as I told them there was going to be some Easter activities. We parked up the car and I handed my Tesco vouchers to the friendly member of staff who gave the boys an Easter trail map each. The boys wanted to get started straight away. There were six questions to answer with six numbered signs to look out for around the gardens. The boys got really involved especially running around the mazes and the amazing park they have there to find the clues. DS2 was in his element excitedly shouting ‘we’re on an adventure’ as we ventured off the path way through muddy puddles and up stairs to reach the beautiful walks and water fountains. There was lots to do and see in between each clue so the chocolate bunny reward was just a bonus for them. Before we left we stopped by the water fountain which was the boys favourite thing to do. The aim of the water fountain, I am sure, is to walk across avoiding the water that sprays up at you on certain parts but of course the boys found out it was much more fun to purposefully get soaked from head to toe, thank goodness I packed a change of clothes for them. There were also other activities on offer for a small charge such as Easter bonnet decorating, face painting and archery but we were saving pennies today.

We all had a lovely day out and as it didn’t cost me anything in money today it was a  fantastic ‘free’ day out.



I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
