For Burton’s birthday this year, we decided to take him to Legoland instead of throwing him another birthday party and I am so glad we did! Don’t get me wrong, I love planning and putting together parties for my children, but I have to admit they can be a tad stressful, expensive and time consuming so to know that I did not have to do any party planning, was actually really nice!!
It dawned on me last week that Jenson and I have never been on a little lunch date together which involved actually eating out and that was not a picnic. To be honest I do not tend to eat out with either boys much due as we always opt for a picnic if we go out somewhere for the day. But then last week, it hit me that after September he will be going to pre school for his 15 hours a week (or maybe 12 until after Christmas – I have not decided yet), and our days together will start to get less and of course a year next September he will be starting school *sobs quietly inside*. I need to make more of our days together now before the summer holidays when Burton will be off school too. I mean we are busy, with playgroups, play dayes and trips to the park and sometimes the beach each week, but I feel I need to be doing other things now too before it is too late and he joins Burton at school and I have to return to work.
So last Thursday while the sun was shining we headed to Fremington Quay for a spot of lunch and a visit to the museum they have there – oh and of course an ice cream! The museum is about the history of the quay and is quite interactive, and not very big so it is ideal for little ones as well as adults. Jenson especially enjoyed visiting the look out tower and seeing the view and pulling the points and listening to the tales of the former watchtower guard, which once overlooked a railway line.
We enjoyed a lovely couple of hours, and the museum, cafe and play area has changed a lot in the 6 or 7 years since I last visited so we will return and take Burton very soon.
Jenson is modelling some new clothes from Polarn O.Pyret’s new summer collection of childrens clothes. This new range offers an array of wonderful clothes for boys and girls featuring safari, flowers and playful animal designs. To find out more please visit their website.
As you can see Jenson LOVES his new monkey tee shirt and shorts thiiiiiiiiiis much!
We were sent some clothes for the purpose of a review. I love PO.P’s clothes because they are well made, have wonderful designs and are made to last and still look good wash after wash. Perfect for children on the go.

I was invited to attend this event with my children (which ended up being child!) and we were provided with complimentary food and a goodie bag to take home and my petrol costs were paid for too. I was not asked to write about this day out, but I want to because we had such a lovely visit and Yeo Valley and The Woodland Trust are great companies to write about.
Thank you xx
