For a more update review check out my lapland UK 2014 write-up
At the end of last week Luke surprised us with the news we was visiting Lapland UK, apparently the closest to the real thing in the UK.
We stuffed bears in the elf factory, iced gingerbread in Mrs christmas’s kitchen, went ice-skating (well I didn’t, I watched from the side) and met Father Christmas. It was quite funny, because we walked into his hut and Eva pointed in the poor chaps face and stated “he looks like Santa” so not sure she was fooled. Also what photo can you see missing from above and the most important photo I should have had for a memory of the whole day? Yes the one with Santa.
What really annoyed me (and mind you the tickets cost £65 each, including children) they wouldn’t allow us to take our own photo’s at this point. I could have had some amazing natural shots of Eva talking to Santa, but they wanted to squeeze some more money out of you by selling photo’s at the end of the experience. What 2 year old wants to pose and smile at the camera? Not mine because she went from happy to screaming the hut down in 2 seconds flat, so no photo. I think if you have paid all that money you should be able to take your own photo’s.
Other than that we had a good day and Eva is now obsessed with ice skating. she keeps asking to go so we have bought her some roller skates. We do actually live near an ice rink, so when I can drag myself away from my laptop I will take her.
Eva and myself were both dressed in our new faux fur gilets to get into the theme of things. Mine is from Next and Eva’s is from the Mini Club at Boots.
