    Breakfast With Santa at Colchester Zoo 2012

    We had booked to have breakfast with Santa for Saturday the 1st of December and we were going to have a full day at the zoo but because of Ethan being ill we had to rearrange the date. The event staff at Colchester Zoo were really helpful, unfortunately all the dates were fully booked but thankfully they had a space left for one of their pre-school mornings and it turned out that this was probably the better option for Ethan. Ethan obviously wasn’t aware of what we had booked for him but I was really excited about doing this as I couldn’t sleep the night before! It was an early start and we arrived at…

    Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

    The Christmas tree and its decorations have highlighted an Ethan Achievement to us.  Ethan can hum Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!

    Walt Disney World – Day 2 – Dinner at ‘Ohana

    Whilst as Walt Disney World ‘Ohana’s is a must on our list of places we want to eat and we are lucky enough that this would be our third time there.  After Ethan had his nap and we were all ready to go we took the bus to the Magic Kingdom and as we had some time decided to take the boat over to the Polynesian as we knew Ethan would love it. We checked in for our ADR and had a little wait so we showed Ethan the waterfall that they have in the lobby. We didn’t have to wait long and were shown to a table right next to the…
