Steam train

Today we went to Sherwood Steam train. It’s a nice little place with a working steam train which we had a lovely ride on


Hannah and her grandad even got a chance to pull the chain that made the train  whistle and we also got to look at the furnace




We went through gnome village




After we had a nice cup of coffee and hannah played on the park


It’s a great place for young children hannah really enjoyed it


I swing

I’m linking up with @oliversmadhouse #magicmoments

Friday was Hannah’s swimming lesson for months now after leaving the pool she’s been asking if she could go to the park which you can see from inside the swimming baths but the weathers not been great for it

This Friday was different we had SUN and with it being half term we decided to take her to the park it was a bit of a risk as she doesn’t like coming away but we was hoping that with her having swimming lesson straight after it would be a lot easier

First thing she did was run straight for the climbing frames which includes monkey bars these have become a firm favorite with her lately her dads always nearby in case she needs a little help even if she doesn’t want him there always the independent

Next she moved onto the roundabout which didn’t last long spying a free swing and running right over I’m sat on the beach and as soon as i see she’s heading for the swing i wait for the yell mum can you push me but it never came instead she jumped right on and started swing all on her own



it melted my heart to see her do this all by herself after all those years before when the doctors said that she may never walk but then came the words that i had been waiting for mum can you push me which really made me smile 🙂

Before she came off the swings me and her always have a swing together its part of our swing ritual

Then came her 10 minute warning that we would be leaving soon which made her run back to the monkey bars 5 minute warning and she was off everywhere swings slide roundabouts

Time to leave, at first she was reluctant to come off rushing to yet another climbing frame after telling her “that if she didn’t come off the park nicely we won’t be coming back for a while” giving her to the count of 3 and telling her “that she might be late for her swimming lesson” she finally decided to come off to which we told her “because she came off the park nicely we would bring her back soon”

Party in the park

Yesterday the whole family went to party in the park

It started at 12 but we didn’t go until 4pm by then the music was in full flow

The park was heaving with people

We started on going round the park josiah and Samuel went to look for there friends so it was just the 3 of us

As soon as Hannah saw the rides she couldn’t wait to go on the the first thing she went on was the trampolines


When it was time to come off we continued going round the park then next thing she went on was the train which she loved and last year went on it 3 times



This year she only went on it twice

We carried on round the park and meet up with josiah and some of his friends chatted with those for a while the hannah wanted to play on the park after playing on the park for about 1 hour It started to rain so we came off

Then we went to mamma’s house for something to eat and josiah was there with 2 of his friends they had come for hot dogs that his mamma had made for them

We had a nice sandwich and a hot drink after a while it was back to the park

This time Hannah wanted to go on a vehicle ride


Again she went on this ride twice

We decided to go listen to some more of the music that was put on from the local area but Hannah got restless so it was back to the park for her 🙂

After she had played on the park for a while we went round again and most of the rides where finishing up but she managed to get a go on the bouncy castle



She had loads of fun when it was time to get off we went to listen to the final act which this year was Gareth Gates the crowd went wild when he started singing one of Bon Jovi songs

All this was put on by the local council as part of there summer entertainment

When it was all over the whole family congregated at mamma’s house it was another great day out had by all 🙂
