It's Christmas at Kew
We are loving embracing being a family of four over the Christmas season. Most of us think of Kew Gardens as a summer destination but how lovely to see what could be an under utilised venue at this time of year transformed for the winter. It's a festive, fun and unique event. A light trail to tickle the senses. beautiful delicate snowflakes lit onto the walk ways, hidden surprise christmas presents in lights, colour everywhere with sprinklings of fire and enchanting music. Theres a pit stop for food and a vintage fairground. We all loved it, Gabriella had so much fun and although Lucia cant speak yet I know she enjoyed it, the evening was full of fun sensory stuff to keep her happy and entertained. The highlight was making a very special wish by holding a lantern and closing her eyes, It was then placed on the very magical wishing tree...it felt like something from a fairytale. This wasn't planned, we should all try to do more things that aren't planned. We love a bit of spontaneity! Last minute spontaneous plans can be the best. Sometimes not having the opportunity to think about what something is going to be like means that youve not had any expectations which generally means you enjoy it a lot more. Honestly, I do believe given a chance my expectations would have been blown regardless, it was that wonderful. What an amazing evening experience. We struggled to get tickets and I now know why. If you can get in this year you must, it's days like this that create memories that will last a lifetime.
