Memorable Family Moments with Red Letter Days

March 31, 2016

The other week I was asked by Red Letter Days to share some of my memorable family moments. With Mother’s Day just gone and Father’s Day on the horizon and our lives getting busier, spending time with family and friends is becoming more important.

As I live away from my parents spending time with them is rare and the moments I get are precious. We’ve always been quite active as a family and most of my memories are of us getting out and about enjoying ourselves in the great outdoors. (Sorry some of the photos here are a little smaller- they’re from the Pond family archives!)


I have very fond memories of spending time at Westonbirt Arboretum, I grew up in the Cotswold’s so many family weekends were spent wandering around the arboretum having picnics and eating ice creams in the summer. It’s such a lovely day out and we still visit now, especially as my grandparents have memorial trees planted there.


We moved to Conwy in North Wales when I was 5, I loved this little town. The sea air is wonderful, and it’s a stones throw from Snowdonia Mountain Park. Whilst we lived here my dad and I did a lot of hiking- like I said always outdoorsy! There’s nothing like sharing a beautiful view with family, whether it’s the top of a mountain or the quay side in Conwy itself.

We moved to Worcester a few years later and my parents have stayed there since. This hasn’t mean our adventures have stopped, from walking through the Malvern Hills to enjoying the music at the Upton Blues and Jazz Festival we still do things as a family when we’re all together. My parents are also renowned with my friends for holding rather boozy Christmas parties!

If you’re struggling for inspiration or family gift ideas and you want to create your own memorable family moments why not check out Red Letter Days? From foodie experiences, like afternoon tea to brewery tours and even outdoorsy type experiences there’s so many things for the family to pick from.

What experience would you pick from Red Letter days? What’s your most memorable family moment?

      My parents are a right laugh sometimes! I have made some photo albums for my parents over the years to look back on stuff 🙂

    What lovely memories! It’s so important to spend time together as a family and not just visit them and sit on our phones, which sadly many people do.

      Phones are most definitely banned in our household when we’re together 🙂
