    Walt Disney World – Day 4 – EPCOT – Mexico, Norway, Donald and Duffy!

    When Ethan was fully awake we headed into the Mexico pavilion so that we could go on the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros it took us a little while to find the entrance for this ride as there were lots of people looking around Mexico. I think Ethan enjoyed looking at all the different scenes as they are bright and colourful.     On our previous trip we found Donald Duck in the Mexico pavilion so I was quite disappointed when we couldn’t see him in there but we found him outside on the way to Norway. The queue wasn’t that long for him, we must have timed it just right. Ethan…

    Ethan’s First’s Of 2012

    My good friend Sara-Jayne is hosting the BritMums Carnival this month and has asked me to write a post for her to take part, she has requested a theme of the word “first“.    So with this in mind I decided to share with you all the “firsts” Ethan experienced in 2012.  In January we purchased Ethan’s first pair of trainers. Disney themed of course and a bargain in the sales!   It snowed in February and although it has snowed since Ethan was born this was the first time that we got to take him out in it. He really wasn’t impressed with it at all!   We were invited to Sara’s son’s birthday party…

    Child Assessment Observation 2

    Yesterday was Ethan’s second observation and this week we walked him into the nursery room and left quietly when he wasn’t looking. This would hopefully give them the time to observe Ethan without having to worry about us, so we went and had a hot chocolate at the coffee shop.  We got talking to one of the other mums whose son is also going through the observations so the time past really quickly. This is the second time she has been through the process and gave us lots of good advise.  When it was time to collect Ethan we went back into the nursery room and they talked us through…

    First Swimming Lesson Of 2013!

    Today was Ethan’s first swimming lesson in what feels like an age. The last time he got into a pool was on holiday and since then it has been one bout of sickness to another, in-fast he missed the whole of last term.  So I was really looking forward to today as I really love our swimming time together and today reminded me of now much. It gets us away from the house for a bit and it gets me talking to Ethan more as I don’t have to worry about any of the house stuff that fills my mind when at home. We get some quality time as we get ready…

    Colchester Zoo Gold Pass

    We have talked about getting a Colchester Zoo Gold Pass for a while now so in the week we finally took the plunge and purchased some. I went with my parents on Thursday to buy them and Darren had to collect his today as they put your picture on the back of the pass.  As you have to go into the zoo to buy and collect the passes we stopped off to see the penguin’s on Thursday and it was at the same time as their feed so we decided to stay and watch it and I’m so glad we did. They bring the penguin’s out of their enclosure and…
