Camping at Nantcol

The Royal Wedding Bank Holiday Weekend, and we took ourselves off camping to the North West Wales coast, near to Shell Island. A secluded campsite with lots of fun things for George to explore.

The view from our tent.
(Unfortunately it was an extremely windy weekend and our tent coped bravely until about 3am on the last night, when poles starting bending and the whole thing fell down around our ears - literally in George's case as he was still asleep inside while Mummy and Daddy were doing their best to keep it upright. Needless to say we got him out quickly when it became clear that it was a lost cause, and we all spent the rest of the night in the car before shoving all the bits into the car and heading home.)

London Marathon

A very long run for Daddy, and a trek around London for Mummy and George and Nanny Nette.
We spotted Daddy at three separate places en route, and George's reward for all that walking was an hour or so in the play area at St James's Park.

Bromley Fun Run

Since we have been supporting Daddy at various runs for the past few years, we thought it was about time we joined in. A 2K "fun run" seemed like a good start. George was excited about it, but some of the excitement wore off when the run was late starting, and he moaned most of the way round, especially when he managed to fall over and graze his knee.
But he was quite pleased to get his medal at the end.

Butlins Minehead

A whole week at Butlins (for a bargain price) and we found plenty to amuse ourselves. Lots of shows (Bob the Builder, Thomas the Tank Engine, Pingu, etc), some arts and crafts, plenty of climbing in the play areas, putting 2ps into machines, eating pancakes and hotdogs, and a trip to the beach. George particularly enjoyed spending an evening at the nursery, although he was upset that he got out-voted on his choice of video.

Three Days, Three Theme Parks

All the Theme Parks re-opened this week for the season, so Daddy and George couldn't wait to re-acquaint themselves with our closest three - Chessington, Thorpe Park and Legoland. Funnily enough, on weekdays in March, they weren't very busy.
