A weekend away and our first trip to Tayto Park!

tayto park

You’re always asking for trouble when you don’t even think about packing until the morning you’re heading away. To be fair, we were only staying for one night so there was very little we needed, I think us mums like to pack for EVERY eventuality though!

Storm Brian was in full force as we were leaving so we all packed waterproof coats. I didn’t fancy us having to trail around Tayto Park in plastic ponchos!

Anyone Else…? Beach Special

… agree that Calippos are by far the best treat for the beach because there are no drips! (They may end up with a just been tangoed orange face though).

That meant the journey was put back a few hours so we didn’t set off until after lunch.

First dentist visit done!

First dentist visit

When I told E that I’d booked him an appointment at the dentist his first question was ‘Will it be like on Peppa Pig?’ This was his only reference point and I tried frantically to remember whether Peppa and George’s trip had gone well. After a quick search on youtube I was relieved that it had.

Coincidently they also discussed brushing your teeth in pre-school, just a few days before his visit. After asking about it on our way home he told me that if he didn’t keep brushing he would end up with vampire teeth!
