Tuesday: Travelling Day

Standard

Time to do Bs hair.
I have to have a think about how to do it on travelling days.
I want it to be pulled back securely enough that it won’t come loose but so that it will be comfy if she falls asleep.
Today I decided on herringbone braids.

Time to travel.
Lots of fond farewells to Granny and Grandad K.
B even waved my summer hat out of the window so that they could see us as we went around the last corner.

Destination Park
The children were given the choice of a swim or that park.
The answer was a resounding “The Park!!”

20130221-211720.jpg I love when they choose to do things together, long may the connection between them last.

I didn’t get a picture of Js very very favourite thing in the park but he was in a constant loop.
Up the frame, down the “Deep Dark”!
His most favourite activity is the looping slide.
We will hear about his desire to return to the “Deep Dark” for months to come, I should think! πŸ˜€

Time to go.

20130221-211925.jpgOK, last thing.
Really, this time we are going.

Back to the car, next stop is shopping.
I left hubs with the children to go to the cafe whilst I picked up what we needed.
When I joined them B was sitting at the window colouring and chatting to this lady.
Hubs told me she was doing activities with the children, mainly face painting but B and J can’t have their faces painted because it affects their skin, so B did some colouring then the lady read her a story.

20130221-212056.jpg I like this image because she is clearly connecting with B through this story but I am still slightly unsure about what it was all about?

20130221-212105.jpg J stayed with Daddy to have cake and crisps.
Cake and Crisps!!?
Er, Daddy, you are spoiling him πŸ˜‰

Back into the car and the last leg of the journey.

We had an incredibly scary moment when we were about 30 miles from home.
Fog had descended and it was pretty thick, Hubs saw something up ahead on the road and hit the brakes to stop.
Thank God he did because a farmer had parked his trailer on the road, without lights!!
They were unloading hay bales into the farmyard.
It was only when we continued our journey that we realised the danger we had been in.
Thank God for Hubs quick reactions!

But we made it home safe and sound.
That aside, I think we had a great day travelling.
The children certainly did.
