Wednesday I’d organised a visit to Paultons Park for over 20 home educated children and their parents. We were up early to have breakfast, get ready and drop Poppy dog at a friend’s house for the day. As we’re still having car trouble Daddy took the girls in his car and a friend collected E and I. E Sat with his friend on the way there and they chatted.
On arrival Daddy told me he had been talking to Mark Owen for Take That in the queue and hadn’t even realised! In the park we went off in smaller groups and headed to our favourite rides. I was made to go on all the scary rides by R. I did take the 3 older ones on one particularly big rollercoaster (by request). R loved it, S didn’t like it and E cried all the way around. I felt very sorry for him as he had been so excited waiting to go on, we all told him afterwards how brave he had been to try.
Whilst coming off a ride with R, I bumped into Mark Owen when he dropped something. I was terribly British and apologised for walking into him. (So there’s my claim to fame, haha!) All morning we had glorious sunshine and it was really warm. As we were eating our lunch a big grey cloud came over, the heavens opened and we got drenched.
We headed over to the soft play in Peppa Pig where it seemed everyone else had had the same idea. Daddy took one look inside and decided he’d rather brave the rain and take advantage of the lack of queues. He took Little S on 5 rides and enjoyed some one-to-one time with her.
After the rain we went off in search of more rides and some ice cream. We saw emu, pelicans and flamingos along the way. To finish the day we stopped off at the splash park. The kids had great fun getting cold and wet.
All in all it was a great day out, even though someone drove into the back of my friends car on our way home!
