Give me a sign...

We were so chuffed to win a whole term of Sing and Sign classes in the Blue Skies birthday raffle and couldn't wait to get started! Honey was quite reserved at first and took a couple of weeks to get into the swing of things but now she likes to join in with the songs and play with all the instruments as much as the next baby! The only signs she really does at the moment are 'all gone' and 'hiding' but hopefully she will pick up a few more by the end of term, especially as she seems to get more confident within the class by the week.

Out the door, dinosaur...

Due to my fondness for dinosaurs, we just had to fit in a trip to Meet Rex at The Wilson before the extinction date at the end of September! Children under 4 go free and adults are £6 each, I was annoyed with myself for missing out on a half price groupon offer as the price felt a little high for what you got. Honey was slightly apprehensive at first but soon warmed up and started trying to pat and feed the dinosaurs. There were lots of fact walls, computerised quiz games and dinosaur models, as well as some of the equipment used by the BBC while making their Walking with Dinosaurs series. A must for dinosaur fans but look out for closing offers if you can and try some of the linked offers/discounts (for example 10% off at Boston Tea Party on production of your ticket) so you get your money's worth.

Choo Choo...

Honey was honoured to be invited to take a trip on Alfie's train today! Technically, the train belongs to Evesham Country Park but given that Alfie's parents had both saved up enough loyalty stamps for a free ride, I think he deserves to call it his! Seeing Alfie's face as we chugged along was priceless and Honey spent most of the journey with her head stuck out of the window which she loved! We went through a tunnel, stopped at a station and experienced the sights and sounds of a real (if miniature) steam train. As well as the railway, Evesham Country Park boasts a range of shops (I even located a Ruby Shoo section), a large cafe/restaurant with play corner and a whole host of diggers while they extend their facilities!

Moreton Show...

It's that time of year again, although we took a toddler rather than a baby to Moreton Show this year! Honey was much more aware of what was going on and of all the animals, but she did find all the walking very tiring and had a snuggly nap in the ABC while Daddy was carrying her. As always, it was great to catch up with lots of people we know and we even got to meet some other babies which we had previously only seen on Facebook! The main attraction was The Bolddog Lings who were amazing (insane would be a more accurate description) and really held Honey's attention with their motorcycle acrobatics and their loud engines!
