Jacks 1st Birthday, Telford Town Park and the Sealife Centre

Jack has recently turned one. 365 glorious days of nappy changes, milk feeds and interrupted sleep. Where does the time go? I look at Jack now and see a toddler who has started walking and exploring, gaining independence in its earliest forms . One year ago I had a newborn who relied on me for his every need.

This week we had a lovely week celebrating with Jack. Wayne had a week off work and we planned a couple of lovely days out. The week didn't start too smoothly as a stomach buy rampaged it's way through our house. Our house doesn't seem able to steer clear of illness at the minute so it's a pattern we are unfortunately getting used to.

As Wednesday approached though, we were better and went to Telford Town Park for Jacks Birthday. My Nan and Grandad live in Telford so as a youngster I visited the park lots. The weather was glorious and myself, Wayne and my sister Faye had a lovely time visiting Wonderland with Jack. Wonderland is a childrens attraction where you can see nursery rhymes and stories come to life. I did think Jack may be too young for it, but he loved walking around and met Snow White and Red Riding Hood on the way around. He was too young for the rides but loved stopping for a play in the soft play area. He was super excited about visiting the ball pit.
All that walking tired everyone out so we stopped for a meal at the Harvester and then went shopping to pick up some clothes for Jack. We then went to my Mom and Dads for tea. They had brought Jack a Fireman Sam birthday cake (his fave.)
On Thursday we went into Birmingham for the day and visited the Sea Life Centre. We went first thing to avoid the Easter crowds and managed to get a queue free visit in! Jack loved watching the water and seeing the different coloured fish. He loved looking at the Penquins, spending the majority of the time waving at them! We got some gorgeous snaps of the family from the photographer there and had such a lovely time.
Aside from our fun days out we also cleaned the house from top to bottom. I don't think you want to hear about how I cleaned my carpets though, so I'll leave it there!

Best of Worst
