A couple of weeks ago we kicked off a few days of birthday celebrations in Manchester with a trip to the Legoland Discovery Centre. Izzy, 4, is really starting to get into Lego and ever since I told her where we were going, she has been really looking forward to it.
Wafer Wisps are an organic and healthy snack for babies and children. They are made with grains, fruit and vegetables and contain no added sugar or salt.
I like the idea of these, as the kids will snack all day long if I let them, so I like to have plenty of healthy snacks available.
We have recently been to Albufeira in Portugal for a family holiday. The break (ha! like holidaying with children can be called a break!) was a welcome one – I was definitely in need of a change of scenery. My husband booked this holiday when Clara was just a few days old. At that point looking through holiday brochures was really the last thing on my mind, and as I’d yet to leave the house with two kids the thought of leaving the country was unfathomable. But fast forward a year, with my return to work imminent, the trip couldn’t have come at a better time.
1. Meeting a dolphin
We went to Zoomarine, not far from Albufeira. There was so much to do, including some rides, a dinosaur attraction, aquarium, water park and slides and 4D cinema. And of course the main attractions – the dolphin, sea lion and tropical bird shows. We didn’t even get chance to go to the water park, we just ran out of time. Clara loved the sea lion show, clapping and cheering every time they did tricks. The dolphin show was Izzy’s favourite and afterwards she got to meet one of the dolphins. She said it felt like plastic as she stroked it’s nose and posed for a photo.
