Our Weekly Roundup #10

The first week of the Easter Holidays got off to a flying start – after our fun over the Bank Holiday weekend, this week we have visited a museum, danced with princesses, hunted for eggs and been to the theatre.

The Beacon, a local museum, currently have an exhibition all about aliens and science fiction. When I told Izzy that they had some Star Wars models there she decided that would be her treat for filling her reward chart. It took a few weeks but she eventually filled it in time for the school holidays! We visited with friends and the kids loved seeing all the life size models and designing their own aliens.

Our Weekly Roundup #9

Happy Easter from Kizzy, Izzy and Baby! As I write this it is Sunday night and the girls are currently asleep, probably dreaming about swimming in chocolate, after cracking open their first Easter egg of the year. They have been very lucky and received tons of eggs – Clara couldn’t even sit still long enough for me to take a photo, she was trying to get into the eggs straight away!

Wicked Wednesdays

Today I’m linking up a photo of family life to Brummy Mummy of 2’s Wicked Wednesday linky.

This is Izzy’s ninjago training course / spiderman web. Built using almost an entire roll of dental floss (30 metres!) and using the shower door handles, towel rail and strategically placed toothbrushes and toilet brush to wrap the floss around.

I thought she was taking a long time having a wee! At least it was smelling minty fresh in our bathroom!

Family timeΒ 

We spent some lovely family time together this weekend, with a trip to Muncaster Castle on Saturday and the Aquarium on Sunday. At Muncaster, all was going well and the girls were having a great time running around the almost empty grounds – until Izzy fell off the swing and face planted the floor. She burst her lip in two places – among the tears and mud there was so much blood! She recovered quickly, but she made sure that everyone knew about it. Clara kept pointing at the owls and hawks and whispering ‘Hello Birdie’.

Mother’s Day
The girls have been busy making Mother’s Day treats this week. Izzy made a lovely card and some tissue paper flowers at school, and she was so proud when she brought them home on Friday. Clara made card at nursery, and when she gave me it this morning she was so excited. “Me! Hand!” she said, pointing to her hand and then to the handprint flowers. She also painted me some pictures at playgroup and gave me a little bunch of daffodils.
