It is my time of year for reminiscing a lot about my time as Mummy to Monkey and Mouse. The reason being because their birthdays are next week, which of course reminds me of how they are growing up (far too quickly).
When Monkey was 19 months old and I was 4 months pregnant with Mouse, we had a ‘staycation’, we took a week off work and childcare and did various day trips. It was our last ‘holiday’ as a three before becoming a family off four. We loved it, exploring different places but always returning to our own comfy beds (meaning Monkey still got a good nights sleep!).
This photo was taken on our trip to Sundown Adventure Land, a theme park aimed at younger children. It is somewhere I went to as a child and really wanted to take Monkey too! There is loads to see and do and Monkey loved it; we got loads of awesome photos of him with various nursery rhyme characters, in the stocks and on rides.
This is one of my favourite though, Monkey was in such a high five stage and he wanted to high five everyone he met – oh and we had to too!
Looking at the pictures has made me smile, in fact I think it might be time to introduce Mouse to the adventure!
