A-MAY-zing days out!!

 May has been so beautiful, but I have hardly blogged!! At the beginning of the month we were blown away by this breathtaking sight…. a sea of bluebells whilst out walking.

My photos don’t do it justice, these were taken up and around West Malvern if you ever get the chance to see them they are well worth a look. (We weren’t the only ones bluebell-adoring, they had quite a crowd of fans that day especially as the sun was shining).

Ayla decided Daddy’s shoulders were more fun than walking!

Watson enjoyed the view…

I just couldn’t get enough of the bluebells!!!

We took advantage of the bank holiday fun down by the river in aid of St Richards Hospice

We had a spontaneous trip to the National Sea Life Centre Birmingham which was so good I would definitely recommend it to anyone, of any age for a fantastic day out.

I really enjoyed our trip round, there were some amazing sea life and plenty of interactive things for kids to see and do. The lighting and layout made it extra special as we watched Ayla exploring this magical world… We were just as captivated as her.

There was a soft play at the end of the tour which topped it off nicely and lets the kids blow off some steam. Ayla watched as one child pretended to swim through the ball pit she then started to copy him and I had fun watching her try to replicate his attempts!

We had a day out to the hospital… (if you can call it that) but it was so nice to finally get the all clear from my surgeon and be signed off… Praise God its all over! Ayla was none the wiser, and took our trip to the hospital as simply another day out, it did help that there was a toy bus at the service station!

After her initial test run, we let Ayla drive us home 🙂 2014-05-10 16.11.11

This month has also been a celebration of my friends baby boy turning 1 we were all invited to the park for a real teddy bears picnic in the bandstand, with face painting and bear hunting!! It was a really great afternoon and so special watching Ayla getting involved, my friend Katie had some great ideas for this birthday party adventure!
