Autumn Fun

This week is half term, though I wouldn't know it. I have been working as usual so my little Bee has been off with his Nana. However, my usual Wednesday off wasn't wasted. Though the weather was forcast rain, we weren't going to let that hamper the one day of the week that we could have Mummy and Louie time. So we made the educated decision to visit Belton House.
Plenty to do in the wet. Plenty to do in the dry. Perfect.

After a gorgeous lie in, we arrived in Grantham at nearly lunch time, so our first port of call was lunch. We ate in 'The Ride Cafe', complete with indoor adventure play area, so Mr Bee had a good play in side whilst I cosied up with a coffee and a book. Then it was homework time.
For the half term week, we have to choose 3 of a possible 9 themes to complete for homework. One of these was a nature walk. Louie chose to take some photographs of the changing colours and the shapes of the trees and leaves. We walked all around the garden, finding autumnal Dahlias and lots of other signs of autumn, fallen and crispy leaves, acorns and conkers.

 No hands!

We retreated inside once again, to indulge in some tea and cake and of course another little play. But then the fun begun. We headed outside to the now even better adventure play ground! You may remember our last visit, during the summer holidays, we came to check out the new play equipment however not all of it was ready just yet. This time, more of it was open, hooray! We had the entire wooded play area virtually to ourselves which was an absolute dream for Mr Bee, and it meant that we could have a super fun time playing together!

It was THE BEST day that we have had in a very, very long time. Happy faces aaaaaall day.

Pumpkin Patch

Today we took a trip to our local pick your own farm for some autumnal fun. We had a nice cup of coffee and some big slices of cake before going to check out the pumpkin patch!

It was the first time we have ever visited at this time of year, Mr Bee annouced himself as the Pumpkin King, move over Jack Skellington ;)

Then of course, he couldn't be dissuaded from a play in the sand pit whilst Pappy and I said hello to the sheep! I love making new traditions with our little family, I can't wait to visit again next year.

Oak Farm Party

Today popped around the corner to our local farm park for one of Mr Bee's school friends birthday parties. The kids had such a wonderful time, even though one little bee was being rather testing all afternoon. But all in all, they had a great time :)

This boy, when did he get so big?
It seems like only yesterday that he was sat playing with his trains in Nana's conservatory. With his little chubby cheeks, pouty lips and inquisitive fingers!

Yesterday we had friends over for an impromptu play date so after Mr Bee had ditched his school uniform, I suggested getting out the wooden train track.
His little face lit up. Before his friends arrived, he sat so peacefully, building his track. Busy but calm and quiet. No sign of any baby chub, this little one is growing up fast!

Boys Toys

On Sunday, Grandad treated us all to a day out. Grandad, Pappy and Mr Bee are all big fans of model railways, and of course, Dan and I are big in to cars, so the Hornby show being held at the Heritage Motor Centre was the absolute perfect way to spend a Sunday.

Ooosh, two of my utter favourite cars! 

It is safe to say that Louie was overwhelmed with everything. Though we have visited before (within Louie's memory), he wanted to look at EVERYTHING, darting around from this to that, up and down. His little face just kept lighting up and there were times where he just seemed completely speechless.

A fantastic day had by all of us!
