A birthday outing….

It was Mummy’s birthday today, so the day started with Daddy, Kaelyn and Alex getting up very quietly (Mummy heard us anyway) so she could have a tiny little bit of a sleep in.

 After an hour of cartoons and playing, we then gather up the pressies and cards, made a cup of tea and ventured up stairs to wake up Mummy with a little bit of “Happy Birthday to You”!

This was followed by some hectic opening of cards and gifts, before a yummy breakfast and a rush to get dressed. The reason for the rush was that we were  heading for Easton Farm Park in Suffolk, for an outing and picnic and play! We also did get to do some horseback riding. This time with a real horse and not Daddy. Strangely enough, the real horsie was just as wobbly as Daddy!

There was also an outdoor playing area, and an indoor soft play area, we could ride on tractors and we could play with “air guns” (only shooting soft balls on each other and it didn’t hurt, so it was good fun) and we could of course get to pet some animals too! We also had a great picnic lunch with lots of yummies, and we had cake as well!

We didn’t mind going to the farm with Mummy, after all it was her birthday and it was great for her to have some fun too…… Love you Mummy!

Busy, busy, busy!

It has been a hectic couple of weekends for us all. Even with rain most days (it was so much rain that a new bridge had to be built at Daddy’s work!) we have been out and about!

Last weekend we went to Southend-on-Sea to visit some friends. We walked all the way out on the 1.33 mile long pier. Windy and a bit cold, luckily we took the train back!

We also managed to get to Colchester Zoo as well as going to Southend!

Mostly we played in the soft play area due to the rain. We did also have a picnic outside at the Zoo. This is our 5th visit to the Zoo, so we are starting to find our way around it. This time we met this little fellow who was very curious about who was visiting.

This weekend we have mostly done gardening… Boring gardening! But after weeks of rain, it was a bit of a jungle out there! After hours and hours of working, we could see the results though! We could even see some flowers!

Even with all the gardening, we did have time to do some jumping on the trampoline, and we also got to the park for a play!

Busy, busy, busy! No wonder the parents are exhausted by the end of the day…. Some va-va-voom would be very much welcomed!

Outing to Silbury Hill

The Daddy said: It will not rain, why don’t we do an outing to Silbury Hill?

The Mummy asked: Are you sure? I’ve just put the washing out!

The Daddy said (full of confidence): Not to worry, Yr.no (Norwegian weather forecast) says there will be no rain in our area today!

Of course it rained on us! Nice outing anyway, and Kaelyn did some fantastic walking (and she took a great photo of Mummy, Daddy and Alex), Alex did not do that much walking, but enjoyed being in the backpack that Daddy carried.

We didn’t get too wet though! Washing did though….

A day out!

Saturday was spent at Cotswold Wildlife Park just outside Burford. What a great time we had! Alex’ eyes just got bigger and bigger when we saw the various animals. Red Panda, Rhino, Camel, Oestrich, Emu, Lion, Tortoise, Penguin, Zebra, Cow (? not quite sure about the last one, but it was there! Maybe some internal program in raising their own big cat food?).

Other than all the animals and the birds we saw, there was also the train ride, the playground, the round-and-round, the food, the ice cream and the smiles and laughter…

In the end we ran out of time, so we are now looking at when we can get back to do it all again (and probably run out of time again).

Fab place!

Happy Mothers Day!

‘God could not be everywhere, so He created Mothers’ (Jewish proverb)

It might just be the first time that Kaelyn have been helping one of us (mum or dad) to do pressie shopping and not telling the receiving party what we have bought….

Today we went into town to get a the necessary details for Mothers Day, and I did tell her that she should not tell Mummy about it. All day long I have been waiting for this shopping spree to be announced to the Mummy, but no…..

So surprise, surprise…. Mummy don’t have to act as it was a complete surprise in the morning!

Happy Mothers Day!
