A Wonderful Weekend
My Weekend started a day earlier for me and started on Friday when my parents came to stay for the weekend. I go up north to see them a lot but I love it when they come to visit as they get to do things we do here and see what Lily is like at home. They visit a couple of times a year so its always a really good weekend and I don't want them to leave.
Writing this now and feeling sad as they have just left and my house feels really empty.
But let me tell you about the great weekend we had.
Friday we took Lily to our local soft play. Mum and dad love coming here as they miss out on taking Lily to places like this and both love running round and playing with her. Last time we went to soft play with my mum and dad was November so they can see a big improvement on how Lily moves around now and can climb on all the soft play equipment around the room. Lily is obsessed with walking up and down steps and so was walking up and down them to and from my mum and dad.
I then got this brilliant photograph of my mum and dad and Lily on the bouncy castle. I love this photo, think I may have to get it printed.
Saturday we had some family visit from Chelmsford. Lily was really shy and after only a hours nap was really quite grumpy. We headed out to lunch where lily had a big plate of fish goujons and peas and mash. The plate was huge compared to her but she loved it and sat munching away on it. She obviously didn't eat it all but she ate quite a bit. I love watching her eat a good meal.
We then went around the shops and my mum, Lily's nan, treated Lily to a new toy.
Later that night we let my mum and dad babysit and went out to watch a film. We watched the new huntsman film. It was really good. It was really nice to be out and about enjoying time with my partner. Wish we could do it more often but we struggle to get a baby sitter.
Sunday we all headed to Brighton for the day. Last time we went here, Lily was in my tummy so it was nice to go back and take Lily. She loved it. She was running around everywhere and loved watching all the rides and hearing all the music. She loves a good public boogie! We also found Peppa and Iggle Piggle which made her very happy. One thing she was totally obsessed with was the seagulls. Every time one stopped near us we had to stop and wave at it. So cute. We had such a lovely day out.
What did you do this weekend? Anything nice?
