Our three year old daughter is obsessed with a children's program called Puffin Rock; a beautifully illustrated, happy little show about a couple of puffins and their various wild friends.
We're lucky enough to live near to Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire so I had the idea to take Ivy to a real life 'Puffin Rock' this year so that we could try and spot all her favourite characters from the program.
We left Alys at home with a friend and had such a wonderful day with Ivy. She loved going on the boat and was amazing at walking all day long. She was really excited to see the puffins, Silky the seal, May the rabbit, the pesky seagulls and we even listened carefully for Mossy the shrew in the undergrowth.
We also managed to catch the spectacular display of spring flowers that Skomer is famous for. It was truly beautiful and the most amazing spread of bluebells I have ever seen.
Ivy asks daily when we can go back on the boat so I think the day was a hit!
