|Our first visit back in December|
Leeds Castle have a great ticket where you pay once and you can came and go as many times as you like in a year! So we packed up a picnic, and everything but the kitchen sink.. going out with a baby requires a lot of stuff haha, and off we went. It was already packed when we got there but luckily the grounds are so large it doesn't seem busy once you're in. We had a lovely slow stroll up to the castle, with stops along the way so Jack could take pictures. Eventually we ended up by the birds of prey which we enjoyed having a look at. It was just a shame there isn't anywhere to leave prams by the maze as we would have loved to have a go in that too!
We then settled down for our picnic as Indie was due a feed. It felt like a summers day sitting with our sandwiches and juice cartons, feeling the sun and listening to the birds. Indie loved being about to kick about on the blanket without having ten million layers on keeping her warm.. although I still did worry whether she was getting cold haha! Everyone around us were eating ice creams so we decided we definitely had to have one too, not one of those rubbish whippy one, but proper scoopy ice cream in a waffle cone, YUM!

We brought our carrier with us so we could go inside the castle this time but typically Indie decided she wanted to nap at this point. We didn't want to wake her up as she's a right grump if you do, and that's no fun for anyone haha. So we passed on the idea again this time, but we have plenty of chances to come back and do it! We opted for some photos infront of the castle instead.. better than nothing I say!
