If you don't know, Centerparcs is a (not inexpensive) way of combining a villa holiday with activities and restaurants all on hand. I believe it began in Holland, and in fact we've been to a Dutch Centerparcs 3 times - it's much cheaper than the English ones, though more of a pain to get to, obviously.
Your holiday price includes full use of the "Subtropical Swimming Paradise" which is pretty much all we do whilst there (it's great but I wouldn't go as far as "paradise"). That's not it above - that's just the boating pond :) The pool area is all under a bio dome type thingy, loads of slides, rapids, wave machine and so on. Perfectly heated and no risk of sunburn.
It's a great holiday for us. Little Man knows exactly what to expect and we can keep the routine the same each day. This also works for me as I get to chill for a lot of it :)
Our routine goes like this:-
- waken up, Dad does breakfast, Mum has lie-in with book, Little Peeps play/draw/watch DVD.
- amble via play areas to central area
- quick lunch
- pool for hoooooours, Dad is chief entertainer. Mum is provider of drinks, snacks, towels, cuddles and again reads book.
- get dried, dinner, home.
- small people to bed, Dad and Mum watch a DVD while Mum crochets :) Everyone happy.
Whilst away I read 3 books, and I crocheted half a scarf. My Year in Books post will be looking pretty healthy next time.
I've only got a few photos as I left my fancy camera at home, and only took my phone out with me one day. The squirrels kept running away, and despite looking I didn't see any spring flowers emerging. So you'll have to make do with leafy things, ducks and children. And crochet of course :)
