Nathaniel is 8!!

ast Thursday, my oldest son Nathaniel turned eight!! How did that happen??? On his birthday we went out for dinner and met Nanna and Grandad there. The children had their dinner and then had their traditional birthday dessert - the mega sundae for two. They love it and who wouldn't - icecream, profiteroles filled with fresh cream, brownie bits, whipped cream, chocolate button, chocolate flakes, wafers....... (I'm drooling just writing about it!!).

Instead of a party, we had a family day out on Saturday. I had booked 2 nights Travelodge (£9 a night of course!) at Donnington Park. We left here after school on Friday, went out for dinner, then travelled down the road. We stayed at the Travelodge overnight then went to Drayton Manor theme park on the Saturday morning. We stayed there all day. It was a little busier than it was when we went last year, but still we had hardly any waiting in lines for rides. We had such a fun time! And the weather was PERFECT. Warm, sunny and dry!! Yipee :) We then went back to our Travelodge for another nights sleep. On Sunday we visited my sister, her husband and their beautiful 7 month old baby Eli. We had dinner with them and just hung out together. What a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Shame I didn't take any pics of them!

So here are some pics from Drayton Manor, but be warned. For those with a delicate disposition - there are pics of me on here, lol. Both David and I HATE having our pics taken. But I thought I need to be brave and put a couple on - just to prove that we exist. And I'm sure in the future my ggggg grandkids might like to know I existed, lol.
