Thursday 24th July 2014 – Disney World Florida Holiday Day 4
Today was our first visit to Animal Kingdom, and the first day we waited more than ten minutes for a bus from the hotel. Animal Kingdom shares its bus service with Typhoon Lagoon, and there seemed to be a lot of people wanting to go to the water park today. It was super hot today and the air was humid. At times almost unbearable.
We spent the morning exploring the park,
Who says socks have to be boring? They serve the purpose of keeping our feet warm, but there’s not reason why they shouldn’t be fun at the same time is there?
Receiving socks as gifts has a stigma attached to it, but when I opened this package containing socks, I didn’t perceive them as dull. 7yo instantly said “wow, cool”, and I have to admit I smiled as well.
Chatty Feet produce quirky socks with fun characters. Made with a combined cotton, the socks are soft and fit well. They come in a variety of designs for both
The last week of the Summer Holidays this week. On reflection we haven’t ventured very far from home, but still managed to find lots to be getting on with.

Bank Holiday Monday arrived and it was time to introduce Lola to the big wide world. She has had all her jabs and was ready to go for her first walk. She was ready to go out further than the garden, we were ready for her to venture further than the garden, and the garden was breathing a sigh of relief that Lola was going to be going further afield.
We have been lead training her in the garden, but she does like to hold a bit of the lead in her mouth, so I was unsure how
What does a 7 year old girl do when she receives a bag containing 5400 loom bands? She starts by “oohing” and “ahhing” over them before sorting them into compartments by colour. Finally after all that looking, she starts to make a mountain of bracelets!
We have definitely been caught up in the loom band craze here and it shows no sign of stopping any time soon in our house.
Rainbow Braid offer 5400 loom bands on Amazon for £14.90. I think that’s a bargain price for the quantity you receive. They are really good quality
Are you ready for back to school? It’s scary to think it’s only next week that most children in the UK will be returning to school after the six-week break. We’ve packed loads into our six weeks, but now it’s time to focus on getting back into routines at bedtime and making sure we have everything ready for the first day back.
7yo loves stationery and is always writing something down in a notebook, or using sticky notes to leave for people. Her school has a new branded rucksack that she has persuaded me to buy this year,
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been treated to the whole family spending time together. It’s a rare occurrence for 19y0 to be involved in the family activities these days unless there is a special occasion. First there was the Disney holiday that we all spent together, and when she poked her head around the door when we were getting our new game out of the box from Drumond Park, and asked to join in, we were pleasantly surprised.
Articulate for Kids is aimed at children between 6-12 years. Despite the fact there was only one player
It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes ago when 19yo went on her first holiday without us. She was just 17 years old then,and has since been lucky enough to go away without us parents earlier this year as well. One of the main reasons I let her go before she was 18 was because the friend she was going with had close friends living in Portugal. I’d spoken to the parents of said friend and I was satisfied that she would be well looked after.
The second time she went back to Portugal, the friend she went with the

I cannot believe the school holidays are almost over. It doesn’t seem like five minutes ago we were finishing school and getting ready for six weeks of adventures. It’s time to start thinking about lunch box ideas for next week going back to school. 7yo can be a slow eater and we like to make sure she will eat what we give her. Too many times a full lunch box has returned home at the end of the day.
