Yesterday we went to the Eden Project, it's such a wonderful place with so much to learn, do and see.
As it was half term holiday they had many free activities put on for children to participate in. The theme of all the fun being based around the Room On The Broom story by Julia Donaldson.
Well the fun begun with a treasure like hunt, the kids were given a treasure map, well it was more a stamp collection map to be honest, where they had to follow the map round the ground to collect the stamps.
Once this was completed we went to the Room On The Broom tent where the boys watched some of the animated version of the story book and attempted to make some character hats, but as it was very busy we took the hat making stuff home to do in our time.
Our next port of call in this adventure was the witches and wizards tent, where there was lots of activities for the children to take part in, including wand making, listening to stories, watching pumpkins being carved and making magic potion.
It was fun watching the pumpkin the lady carving them was very talented and had some wonderful pumpkins on display.
Well next the children sat and made a magic wand, the man leading the activity told the children what they needed to do and they listened carefully and successfully made a magic wand.
After this they queued up to make some magic potion. They picked up their little jars and walked along the line collecting various ingredients for their potion like dragons tears, mermaid tears and unicorn tears.
Well they collected all the ingredients they wanted and made it to the end of the line where the final ingredients was troll Fart which they collected up and put the lid on their jars and their potion was complete.
Y Is For ...... Yummy
Yesterday (28/10) we went to the Eden Project, it is a wonderful place if you have never been I recommend a visit.
Whilst on our visit the children used their regular sentence whenever we're out somewhere of "we're starving daddy" I knew they weren't starving but they insisted they were.
So we stopped for a bite to eat, we noticed in the ice rink they sold chips so we brought a few trays of them to share round. When we got our chips, to our amazement they were sweet potato fries and they were YUMMY.
Well that's my Y Is For ........
Stay tuned for my Z Is For ........
The final installment in this fabulous A-Z journey.

W Is For ...... Wrestling
I've been a fan of wrestling since I was a kid, yes very very sad some might say but I enjoy watching it.
I remember when I used to go to my granddad's house at the weekend and watch WCW on the free channels on sky and I also remember when my neighbour used to tape the main events of WWF or WWE as its known now onto video cassette for me (showing my age a little there lol).
I've been to watch live recordings of the weekly wrestling shows (RAW and SMACKDOWN) at the LG Arena in Birmingham and whilst at Universal Studios Florida I went to watch TNA Impact Wrestling being recording and got hooked on that, in fact I still watch it regularly on Sunday nights.
Well that's my W Is For ........
Stay tuned for my X Is For ........
