We are so lucky to live so close to The Eden Project. At the weekend we spent a very happy day there exploring the biomes and discovering amazing plants and flowers. 

We visit regularly, as the Eden Project offers a fantastic deal for locals, so that you pay a really reasonable fee and get to go as many times as you like for the year. We love it as there is so much for the children to do, lots of running about, star shaped sandpits in teepees, not to mention the biomes, they even got to grind (roll) oats into porridge oats this time. Much fun was had pumping water in The Core, as well as running around The Seed, which is a stunning 70-tonne granite sculpture (of a seed!) in the heart of the core. The Eden Bakery is one of the children's favourite parts of our Eden visits, the food is delicious and the cakes and scones are HUGE!

It was bring your dog to Eden day on Saturday and Edie (who adores dogs), was super excited to see the pooches wandering around, the highlight of the day for her was watching a demonstration with a policeman and his dog, who was also called Edie!

There is a park and ride bus that takes you back from the Eden project to the car park, which for little ones is a little tough on their tiny legs after a long day of charging around, so we took the bus. Charlie thought it was amazing. When I put him to bed and asked him what his favourite part of the day was, he said "going on the bus!".  Simple pleasures.

Happy days x
