The Ice Cream Farm

Hey everyone! The last proper blog post I did was back on the 3rd and I was very angry about not sleeping the night before we were due to go out for the day. Well, despite my sleep deprivation and terrible mood, we still made it to the Ice Cream Farm in Cheshire and I'm really glad we went.

The two and a half hour drive was stress inducing which prevented me from sleeping in the car and we were all really hungry by the time we arrived at the Ice Cream Farm but things definitely got better once we were there. We immediately grabbed lunch and I ended up having one of the most delicious chicken burger I have ever had! It was so good that not only did it put me in a better mood but it gave me enough energy to get through the day. Vala did throw a multitude of paddies but it didn't dampen the day. She started off playing on the Daisy Garden playground. Running in and out of tunnels and junping on little square trampolines in the ground. She'd have happily spent all day just on the playground if we let her but there was much more to be seen and done.

Next we had some fun panning for gemstones in sand and water. Vala was given a little sieve and with some help from myself and Jordan, managed to find lots of tiny but beautiful gem stones. We panned for a good half an hour at least! We managed to coax Vala away by tempting her with a drive on an small electric four wheeler with Jordan. They got to do a lap of the track with Vala driving for most of the lap. She did try to crash them a few times apparently but she and Jordan were both laughing and having a great time.

Next we headed indoors to the Fun Factory which is just a pretty regular soft play centre. We chose to spend time there so that Flynn could join in and have some fun too. While Vala raced off to climb, jump, slide, roll and crawl through the bigger kids play area, Jordan and I took Flynn to the baby and toddler section where he had a great time crawling around, grabbing rogue balls that had escape the baby ball pit and talking to his reflection in a mirror. It was the first time that day that we all got to be involved in something and that made me really happy. Vala was bursting with energy, zooming around chaotically and Flynn had a giant smile on his face with his new found freedom from the pram.

As the day started to come to an end, we couldn't leave The Ice Cream Farm without an ice cream now could we? Their Cheshire Ice creams are so delicious and they have so much variety to choose from! Vala chose Double Chocolate and wore it all over her face. Jordan ventured out from his usual vanilla choice and tried Blackberry Cheesecake which was actually insanely delicious! I had Raspberry Pavlova which was also insanely good. I honestly could've taken home tubs of the ice cream flavours we tried. To wrap up our day we took some family selfies and had one last play on the Daisy Garden playground. In the centre of the playground is a giant ice cream tree which shoots foam out of it every half an hour. We were lucky enough to catch some foam right before it was time to leave. It really was the prefect end to a day that had started off so bad.

All in all, despite my horrendous mood in the morning and the fact the trip nearly got cancelled, we all had an amazing time. If you're located in the United Kingdom and fancy a fun family day out that is insanely affordable (im talking no entry admission), then I can't recommend the Ice Cream Farm in Cheshire highly enough.
