Making the Most of our Merlin Pass - Thorpe Park

Another day, another theme park. Thorpe Park, for a change. It's mostly aimed at teenagers really, but there are a few little rides for George, some big ones for Daddy, and some medium ones that they both like.

I think Daddy slightly regretted this one:

Cultural Weekend

Our first weekend at home for ages, so we went out and about in London. (George is now thoroughly confused about where London is because he knows we live in London, but we also sometimes "go to" London. So he thinks there are at least two places called London.)

We went to a proper West End Theatre to see "Room on the Broom". George sat still and watched it relatively quietly - it was an entertaining production (although Daddy wasn't impressed).

We had lunch at the Tokyo Diner where George was disappointed to discover that not all sushi is Yo! Sushi, but still managed to wolf down everyone's raw salmon. Then we got soaking wet in a summer downpour, before heading back on the train to the tune of "Underground Ernie".

There was more Underground Ernie the next day when we visited the Transport Museum. We also had an American-style breakfast and paid a visit to Hamleys.

Wedding Day!

Mummy's god-daughter Annajoy got married to Ian in the big Catholic Church in Bognor Regis. Waiting for the bride to arrive, George asked in a loud voice "When is the show going to start?"

He did quite well at the reception, until the point at which he threw up everywhere. At least this time he waited until after the ceremony - unlike at our own wedding!

George's First(ish) film

Although we went to a Baby screening when George was a few months old, I don't think he actually paid any attention to the film, so we're counting this as his first cinema trip.

The film was Toy Story 3 (none of us have seen 1 or 2) and Daddy insisted that we saw the 3D version which meant we all had to wear essentially pointless glasses - George got bored with his halfway through but I don't think he missed much by taking them off.
