Great family bonding time with our toddler by a Dad who loves his family and his van!
We are lucky enough to have access to a number of different sized campervans and we do try to make the most of them
Whatever the temperature outside, one of the cutest regular fixtures in our household is a weekly father and daughter night in our long wheelbase Mercedes Sprinter family van.
We have found we really don’t have to go very far or make a big deal of planning and preparation, to enjoy some time in the van. Pretty much every week, whatever the weather, my daughter and I can often be seen going off on a Sunday afternoon and park up somewhere quiet for the night. There are a few favourite spots, close to our workshop and our daughter’s nursery.
Depending on the weather, we may fly a kite, have a run around, or say hello to some farm animals! When darkness falls the van is a great place to be. In the winter, we crank the heating up so the van is really cosy.
Furthur, our Mercedes Sprinter, has a full kitchen with an oven, so it’s easy to cook a delicious dinner. There’s even a TV, so there’s the option to have bit of CBeebies action before sleep. It is an early night for me but in the relaxed environment of the campervan there is nothing better than listening to a nearby river, or some wildlife as you drift off.
It’s such a lovely little routine and something our toddler loves. As soon as she sees me get ready, she grabs a bag and heads to the front door to wait for me!
We know that as our toddler grows what she likes may change, so I am taking every opportunity to enjoy this precious time with her.
Thanks to Further the Mercedes Sprinter for being such a perfect companion on our trips.
