Keukenhof is one of the world’s largest flower gardens with more than 7 million bulbs in bloom this spring, with a total of 800 varieties of tulips!

This was our third year attending the Tamworth Annual Firework event and every year it is packed full of activities and people! This year, it was again a spectacular fireworks display by the council and we will definitely be going again next year. The whole display normally last 20 minutes but best of all, it was free!
Recently, we came across Qixels at a local shop and grabbed Mr K’s attention immediately. They are almost like beados and fuse together once dried! Qixels are small cubes which can be used to make pictures/characters and then you use water to fuse them together. This is suitable for aged 4 and above.

This is our 4th year attending Low Noise Fireworks organised by Saxon Hill School, the emphasis being completely visual with the noise reduced to a minimum.
Each year that we have attended, the weather has always rained and this year unfortunately was no different. When we reached the school, we were greeted by the ushers who directed us to the car park. The entrance fee has always been very affordable. Usually, the ticket price includes a glow stick but this year we had to pay 50p for each.
