June has been a lovely month
- all the yuckiness of May has resolved and we had birthday's to celebrate and parties to plan!
The Newcastle Museum is a fantastic rainy day excursion and Oliver loves the interactive nature.
The museum is orientated towards scientific principles and there is a fantastic experiment where children (and Dads)
can pull on ropes to lift a car up.
Excellent to burn off energy on a rainy day.
There was the now traditional visit to Winter Heat in the city at night in the freezing cold. Two years ago when Oliver turned one it was our first evening adventure!
There was Mama's 40th birthday
There was the birthday visit by Margi and Tom -
please note the presence of Margi bear and Tom bear in the group photo.
Oliver moved into a real bed - luckily we got the king single as there is barely any room for Oliver in the bed once all the teddies have been tucked in! Two of those teddies are turning 40 this year - Happy Birthday!
We walked up to the lighthouse to see if the whales were passing by -
not that exciting if you are nearly three and nearly not one!
Mama and Daddy thought the walk was quite lovely
and the sunshine was equally glorious
and we tried out the scooter on pram contraption (hence the helmet)
another winning gadget from mountain buggy!
Oliver had a second set of grommets put in -
looking calm and collected before the operation -
looking sad and sorry afterwards.
There were lots of birthday cuddles at the combined Oliver, Mama and Daddy
birthday breakfast with our Newcastle Family -
Thankyou for getting up so early Trish, Paul, Megan and Justin
Oh and Freya says -
"in June I sat up!"
