Our Easter Weekend was spent decorating the kids bedrooms, feels really weird saying kid’s! Knowing that Ethan was really struggling with missing his nursery routine we knew we would have to get him out of the house at some point during the weekend. We were looking forward to taking Ethan to our local Easter trail at our country park on the Sunday, but due to the bad weather we opted to taking him to our local soft play instead.
So after discovering Jimmy’s Farm via one of my FaceBook friends, and working out it wasn’t that far from us we decided we would take Ethan there on the Monday.
It turns out quite a lot of people had the same idea so the queue to get in was very long. This caused Ethan to have a bit of a sensory overload and to stop him having a meltdown I took him for a walk whilst Darren queued for us. Thankfully after the queue to get in and we were on the move, Ethan settled down and we were able to enjoy the day.
We made our way to the butterfly house first as Ethan can hum the word butterfly so I wanted to show him the real thing. It was very hot in there and Darren found it hard to cope with so we wasn’t in there long. We did visit later in the day and I was able to capture some great photos. Ethan kept wanting to touch the butterflies so we had to make sure he didn’t hurt any without stopping him from exploring the world around him.
