We were going to a childrens event at the museum in Downpatrick, but we got there too early and had some time to kill. Lee drove us over to Newcastle and took the kids out on the beach. Tom loved throwing stones into the water and Amy was making tracks in the sand with her new Paw Patrol toy Tracker!
We had a picnic lunch in the car, tuna sandwiches, nectarines, bananas and chocolate chickens!
We went back to the museum which was open and had a nosey about. They both liked the noisy musical instrument room and played with the magnetic shapes for a good while.
Amy went about with a spy glass looking for items in the museum from her clues she was given.
We've been enjoying our mornings together while Amy is away at nursery.
We've been going to the library for Rhythm and Rhyme, visiting friends, meeting friends at Fun Works, going to the park on dry mornings and Toms highlight - the morning he got to carry the bread at Tesco. He's never been so excited, he carried the bread to the till, to the car, hugged it all the way home, took it inside for me and ate a slice from the bag.
He's still the sweetest, most affectionate and cuddly baby boy.
He runs at me with his arms open, squeezes me and says 'wuff you mamma'.
