Look, an aeroplane!!!

We decided to take the boys and Cassie to this year's "Festival of Air", so after driving to the station and getting the train into Southend we walked almost the entire length of the seafront, stopping off now and again to climb into a tank, watch the airshow, get an ice cream etc etc. The boys were really good, in fact, lee winged more than they did!

Alex and Nicholas loved the Red Arrows, Lee loved the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and I liked the Helicopters best.

When we got to the Red Arrows village, Alex got talking to one of the Engineers and of course, they had to have their picy taken by a Red Arrow!

A great day out :)

Will make a good scrapbook layout though!

A little light reading....

Alex's school are running a competition entitled "Extreme Reading" whereby a photo has to be taken of them reading something in the most unusual place....

We didn't have much time so off the cuff, I thought the loo would be a good one to start with!

Our little boy is 5!

I can't believe where time goes - seems like only yesterday......

Alexander was a big 5 years old on Bank Holiday Monday and we had family and close friends round for a birthday tea in the afternoon and everyone assured me that they had a good time.

Alex got LOADS of pressies and "paper money" as he calls it, so he was very happy too :)


THEN, on the Tuesday Alex, Nicholas and 5 of Alex's friends were collected from school and driven around in a real FIRE ENGINE for an hour or so. After being dropped back at our house, they got to all play with the hose! The look on the boys' faces was worth it!

After that came food, cake and games. one very happy little boy....
