    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…

    Babbling

    I’m keeping everything crossed as I write this post as I’m loving the progress that Ethan has made and I pray that it doesn’t stop as Ethan has babbled before but gone quiet again so…   …Its official Ethan has babbled every day for the past three months!    Its so lovely to hear as our house has gone from being very quiet to being filled with noise and as time passes it is getting louder and louder as Ethan has now added screaming to the noise he makes.    What is also nice it that Ethan babbles at us as if he is having a conversation with us, he…

    Breakfast With Santa at Colchester Zoo 2012 – Continued

    Included in the price of breakfast with Santa you get admission into the zoo for the day, we knew we didn’t want to spend the whole day at the zoo due to Ethan not being 100% so we just decided to take him to see the sea lions which is his favourite animal at the zoo. We put this down to being a water based animal as these are the only ones that grab his attention.   On route we stopped at the penguins, another water based animal that was a hit. Ethan did lots of babbling whilst watching the penguins and he worked out that his voice was echoing so he did…

    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…

    Ethan’s First Birthday Treat – Colchester Zoo!

    We often pass Colchester Zoo on our travels but in our adult lives we had never visited so we decided that we wanted to see what it was like there for Ethan’s first birthday, our first official day out as a family.    Ethan wasn’t walking yet and to be honest he had only just learnt how to sit up on his own so he spent most of his time in the buggy.    We started of by saying hello to this guy… …but this little man wanted to say hello to Ethan. I would love to know what secrets he was telling him!     After this encounter Ethan promptly fell…
