Yes definitely an extra blanket if you have space. Also, take a look at clothes. I find ir hard to remember how cold it can get at night when packing on a hot day and leave things behind. Do make sure everyone has at least one warm jumper, long trousers and socks just in case, even if they refuse to believe they will need them.
DP thinks I'm being unnecessary about wanting to take extra blankets etc, so I'm tempted to let him freeze get cold. but I won't of course.
The bg water bottle is a great idea! Well get one of those when we get there.
Thanks again, so so so so so so much! DP thinks I'm mad because I say I've asked for advice on here. He hasn't even checked the YouTube videos on assembling the tent so thanks to you all and your advice, I will be the 'expert'.
Just wanted to update to say thanks to you all for all your advice. With your help we managed a short trip, 3nights and I really enjoyed it. My dc had a great time, although they wanted to eat in the tent as he were loads of wasps around. They loved playing outside, just not sitting still.
We were supposed to be away for 4 nights but the weather forecast for the next day was looking very wet, so we decided late on the afternoon that we would pack whilst it was dry. We also would have never packed up before 11am, especially font was wet, so I'm glad we wimped out left a day early.
All the advice on here was brilliant! I felt like I got it all right, so we were all comfortable, and warm and it was very chilled ESP as DP did all the loo trips with the dc.
the only downside was that there were some children who hogged the Play area and seemed to want to cause trouble, and I am intimidated by that so we avoided the playground a few times. A one point I thought there was going to be a fight, especially when mums started to get involved. The kids who were causing the problems were only between 9 and 12 but they pushed in, bullied some of the other kids and were obstructive on the climbing frames. That did put a bit of a dampener on things, but we would definitely go again.
