Our Perfect Day At Center Parcs

Before big monkey was born Mr Monkey and I went on a fab family weekend away to Center Parcs, Elveden Forest, to help celebrate his sisters 40th Birthday. It's safe to say we loved it there and hope to one day take the monkeys too, so we can share the magic with them. I was 6 months pregnant with big monkey, so it was a while ago now. I'd love to see how it's changed.
Taking inspiration from this video, featuring Lydia, Rory and Anna. (We are after all big kids, who love having fun with the monkeys) I would say our perfect day would look like this:
A lazy start to the day for the monkey's and I whilst daddy goes for a run around the park. Whilst he is doing that I would be preparing breakfast for us all, to enjoy together as a family in our accommodation. 
Next we would all have a fun filled swim in the pool, going up and down the slides. With a quick refreshing break in one of the cafe's. Cake and tea for me!
After than we would hire bikes and explore the paths and scenery around the lake, stopping to play crazy golf. We played back in 2008, which was great fun with 10+ family members joining in.
Now, we love food, so next would have to be lunch in one of the restaurants. We all enjoy pasta so would probably opt for that, followed by ice cream for the monkeys benefit of course!
Back to our accommodation for a quick freshen up (via our bikes), then off tenpin bowling. 
Later a stroll back to the villa via the sweet shop and then dinner for four, before a nice quiet evening in, with a glass of wine or two whilst the monkeys sleep and dream of the fab day they have just enjoyed. Maybe with a DVD rental from the shop!
These are some of the photo's taken on our trip before the monkeys came along. I remember these with fondness as I was carrying big monkey as mentioned.
