Mini had a fab time opening his presents this morning. This year is really the first year that he has understood what is happening and has been counting down his birthday since his cousins on May 31st! He was almost too excited to get to sleep the night before!
The joy on his face for his presents was wonderful, we got him a scooter and an Uno game, but his best present so far has been his Star Wars the Clone Wars Clone Trooper Outfit from Gran.
Now the thing is my boy adores The Wiggles. I have my mother in law to thank for it, as she was the one who introduced the boys to them and for some reason with Mini they really did just stick in his brain.
We took him to see the live last year and seen as they were live in York on his actually birthday this year, we really didn’t have much of an option.
So this week we have made a bone for Wags the dog and also paper roses for Dorothy (a post on the roses to follow).
We set off early Thursday morning and Mini and Maxi were very excited to see them. What can I say, they had a blast and because they had a blast, so did we. We have Ernest staying with us at the moment and he enjoyed The Wiggles too.
Although I think that Ernest’s Bad boy ways must be rubbing off on Mini, as he threw his drinks carton into the crowd, yes it was empty, but I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me whole. I was mortified. So if you were the mum of the little boy it hit – I am sorry and I hope the blackcurrant stains come out.
We then went to Pizza Express for a treat (thanks to Tesco Vouchers) and mini spent his birthday money on a wii game.
We also went to see one of MadDad’s clients Shakeaholics and the boys had a wonderful Milkshake each.
Maxi chose a smarties one
Mini a fresh strawberry one.
It is such a cool shop, they can make a shake that tastes of anything, MadDad had a Reece’s peanut cups one and it was just wonderful.
And yes, we did buy the boys a tour t shirt each! York was such a wonderful day out.
