Wow, what a week we’ve had. It started last Friday with an impromptu day out, just me and the girls. The weather was sunny and I’d been meaning to try a forest playgroup in the next town. After playgroup, we had a picnic at a national trust property nearby. F had a ball climbing this Tudor mound!
On Saturday we had a walk in the woods. F was initially disappointed it wasn’t the park or forest playgroup so we made our own. We did bark rubbings and she climbed fallen trees (like a squirrel she informed me). If you want to see more of our weekend then head on over to our home life project May post.
On Wednesday we made the drive down to Windsor. We stayed overnight in the Legoland hotel (it’s amazing for kids) and then spent Thursday in Legoland. We stayed nearby in a premier inn Thursday night, before making the drive home yesterday. I had planned to finish this blog post on Thursday evening but by the time we got the girls to bed, I was shattered!
Does the Legoland map count? Or the entertainment guide? I did take a magazine away with us but we arrived at Legoland at 3 pm Wednesday and literally didn’t stop until we got home (apart from sleeping obviously). Legoland hotel has so much to explore and entertainment for the kids from 5 pm until 9 pm (we left early though) and from 7:30 am until the park opens (30 minutes earlier than the main gates). We also had to fit in a play in the lego pirate themed swimming pool and splash area as soon as we arrived on Wednesday.
I’m behind with most Tv shows I watch but I did really enjoy an episode of Grey’s anatomy from a few weeks back. If you watch Grey’s it was the episode on the plane. I was hooked.
We watched a fantastic show at Legoland. Pirates of skeleton bay. Pirates, stunts, jet skies, slap stick fighting, and pyrotechnics. What more could you want?
I’ll hand this one over to F this week as I’ve not made much and she’s made lots.
At forest playgroup, she did painting, made a bird feeder, turned a paper plate into a bird, made birds nest and generally made a mess in the tuff spot digging set up and the mud kitchen.
On Saturday we did some bark rubbings on our walk.
She’s had an amazing time at Legoland and made lots of things out of lego.
Weather wise it’s been a funny week. On Saturday F had her winter coats on and on Sunday she had needed a sun hat. In Legoland, we were mostly lucky with the weather but we did have an hour of rain.
F getting very excited about Legoland. She was up at 5:30 am shouting “it’s morning in Legoland!”. I’ve also been making my way through the Me and Orla Hashtag authentic podcasts. If you love Instagram I can highly recommend them.
And lastly …
Talking of Instagram, tonight we hit 1000 photos in my hashtag #mycolourfulkids. Have you used it yet?
