    Walt Disney World – Day 2 – Animal Kingdom – Festival of the Lion King

    After our fantastic safari we decided that we wanted Ethan to see The Festival of the Lion King. I love this show, I even go as far as saying I prefer this version to the theatre version in the West End. It was still quite early and Camp Minnie Mickey was yet to open to the park visitors, so whilst we waited we had some fun…             We then took Ethan to see the fish until it was time to see the show.      When we entered the theatre I asked if we could sit in the lion section as that is the only animal Ethan really…

    Christmas 2012 – Our Christmas Tree

    We decided that this year we would put the Christmas tree up whilst Ethan was in bed. I used to love putting the Christmas tree up with my mum when I was younger but we don’t feel that Ethan is ready to help us just yet. So our Saturday night was spent putting up the tree whilst watching the final of ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!‘, I was very pleased with the result.    I was very excited when we got up this morning to show Ethan the tree, so excited that I caught my foot on the baby gate on the way down the stairs in…

    Christmas 2012 – Advent Calendars

    This Christmas is a special one for us as its the first one in our house and I’m really hoping that this is the year that Ethan starts to understand the concept of unwrapping presents as for the past two years, including his birthday presents, it has been left to us to open all the gifts. I’m not expecting a miracle but just having Ethan show a tiny bit of interest in the opening of the gifts would make my day. We have years to work on the whole idea of Santa and eventually the meaning of Christmas so I’m not worried about that just yet!  So as we all know yesterday…

    Walt Disney World – Day 2 – Animal Kingdom – Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition

    After eating our fill at breakfast we made our way to the safari as you are meant to get a better safari experience the earlier it is in the day as it isn’t so hot for the animals.  I think this is the fourth time I have now been on this safari and it was the best one I have ever been on. It was a lot cooler in Florida as Sandy was making her presence felt so that could have been the reason.  It wasn’t long before our jeep arrived to take us on our adventure and Ethan got a fantastic seat, I was worried that he would be…

    Unwell Ethan :0(

    It has been a long week in our house and quite a worrying one. Ethan has been really ill and I would say we still aren’t out of the woods yet but he is finally improving.  When I called NHS Direct on Monday night they really weren’t any help at all! The question I wanted answered was ‘when you have tonsillitis can you also be physically sick’ the lady on the line would not give me a yes or no and she wanted us to drag Ethan out in the pouring rain to get him looked over again, we had just got him to sleep and I didn’t want to make…
