It’s nearly half way through the summer holidays but they havent really been that different for me as a parent as I have still been working until recently. I finished work last week as I’m going to start my Nursing degree in September, i’ve left a few weeks early to spend time with C and have a little holiday in Towyn wales at the end of the month with her and Sam.
C hasnt been in nursery as she goes to a term time nursery so my mum and other family members have been stepping in to look after her.
We have done a few things up to now this summer …
Greenacres animal park, Deeside
C and I went to Greenacres animal park in Deeside with a few friends and their kids a few weeks ago. The kids loved seeing the animals, touching a few in the pets corner area like snakes, rabbits and feeding baby goats.
The fair rides weren’t the greatest but they kids liked them, even if they got bored waiting for one of the 3 attendants that were operating all the rides.
The weather was fabulous and all the kids really got on well 😀
Fun in the park.
A few times we have been over to the park for a play in the play area. C loves it and makes new friends everytime ( although I tent to only take photo’s of her as I wouldn’t like people taking pictures of her without my permission)
She never wants to leave but is always too tired to walk home lol
Sam and I try to do something just us two on or around the 20th of the month he planned last months date night so I got to plan this month.
I’m not telling you what happens in the room but it included a lot of locks and some very ingenious hiding places. We had a great time and managed to break out with 4 minutes 9 seconds to go ( with a little help from the lovely lady behind the tv screen)
Playtime at home!
We have played, tried on holiday clothes and explored the house and garden 😀
This summer C has been to a couple of Birthday parties, we have had meals out with family and friends and of course donuts 😀 all a child’s favourite things.
This is C at a family meal with an adult’s chocolate cake….her uncle Ste got her kids one :p
Exploring our city ( for free!)
We had a love day out last week, even though the weather was rubbish we decided to go on a day out and explore Liverpool.
Sam, C and I all got up and dressed, had some breakfast then drove into town.
We parked in St johns then went into the shopping centre, there was a new food place opening up in the food court called Doughocracy that was offering free Pizza on Friday and £1 pizza on Saturday and Sunday. We queued for a while (45 mins) for free pizza, and it was worth it. pizza was a 10″ create your own type and cooked in about 3 minutes.
We ate then went to Dunkin’ Donuts were we got a box of a dozen to take to our friend later that night. C had once while we were there as she seem to have a second “sweet” stomach and no matter how full she is she still has room for dessert lol
After that we went to the world museum, starting at the top we worked our way from dinosaurs to the natural world, colours to the aquarium. C loved to look at everything and even got to try on some dress up ( so did I because Sam put it on my head while I was helping C and too ka sneeky picture).
We go on holiday in a week so will have a ton more pictures then. I hope to get back into blogging more after the holidays as it is a little difficult to get things done with a 3 year old, plus a new relationship.
Once everything is settled and I start at uni I will try and blog on here and on my student one at least once a week.
