The Humber Bridge and country park

Hull seems to have a bit of a rep for not really being the most exciting/happening place to visit. I find it okay, ive spent a fair few days there as a teen shopping with friends and on dates. The odd day out with the kids to the deep or the museums, but its never on the top of my list of places to visit, especially when there are so many more beautiful spots to go around Yorkshire that just seem more attractive. However a couple of weekends ago, on a Saturday my parents invited us to join them for the afternoon at The Humber Bridge and Country park and I was pleasantly surprised. Nath was away for the day with some of the men from the family for a stag do and everyone else busy with various things and so we accepted and enjoyed some family chats, playing out, exploring and a generally lovely day out.

The day was cool but sunny and clear so we had amazing views over the river and over the country park. My dad, as always was the group leader and the one with all the know about these things and as a result kids always flock to him for adventure, despite him seemingly not a natural kid person. They love him and as kids we loved all of the cool places he took us on adventures!

Again at 3 & 4 this means nothing and with the excuse of them not yet able to read and being little rebels they took a dip and absolutely loved it, at least until Megs lost her Peppa Jellies! Also they all went home naked with our jumpers and fleeces for cover as we hadn’t anticipated an afternoon dip!

Who ever knew it was there! I really want to go again for a chilled walk, exploring sess and picnic!

    My brother used to live in Hull and I really wish we had done more exploring when we went to visit him. Sounds like a good day out and I love the photo of all the kids in your clothes, great to let them just get outside and have fun! xx
