Family & Days Out

A Trip to Thomasland

Last week, I decided to take the children to Thomasland, without the Husband. I make this point, because I’ve not attempted to take the pair of them out to somewhere like this before alone, as Boo has a tendency to get excited and run off, and if Little Man’s free of the pushchair, he doesn’t tend to want to stay near me! As Drayton Manor can be pretty busy, it’s not ideal conditions for situations like this to arise. Then put on top of that the fact that I get motion sickness on rides, so their dad does that bit, and it doesn’t look like a great plan to go! But, the rather lovely BrummyMummyof2 was going and suggested we meet up, so I thought we’d give it a go!

We took a picnic, lathered up with sun cream and were away for the day! Boo was very excited, as she loves Thomasland and was also eager to meet and make new friends. It was sweet seeing the girls go on the rides together, and by the end of the day they were clearly ‘best friends’ and gave each other a big hug as we said goodbye. We went on several rides, many of which the little ones went on, too, ran about in the soft play, explored the zoo, had fun in the playground, took in the Dinosaur Trail and of course had to make a stop for ice cream – it’s obligatory, isn’t it?!

It turned out to be such a lovely day. The weather was fabulous, the company brilliant, and the children had a wonderful time. As did I, which wasn’t entirely expected, as I suspected the kids might stress me out, but no, they were fine! So much so, that we stayed at the park a little later on our own, and took a ride on Thomas, just the three of us, and had a lovely saunter back through the zoo, and Boo had to have one last go on a ride!

We bought a season pass, so we can go back as many times as we like before the Summer Holidays begin, and I can see us making the most of it and going practically every week. We are lucky, as it is just a 10 minute drive from us – very handy!

A wonderful day out, that we hope to repeat many times before Boo starts school. So, thanks to BrummyMummyof2 and her fab kids for tempting us out and keeping us company on a fun day πŸ™‚
