The penultimate week of the school holidays and it's been a quieter one. More indoor play this week due to some wet weather and me working three shifts, but the monkeys have still had fun! Here's our week 35 round up for days 236 to 242
Day 236. Noticed this 'heart' in the top of the coffee hubby made. Sheer conincidence I hasten to add!
Day 237. Playing tea parties and picnics with little monkey. It rained all day Monday.
Day 238. Little monkey loves his new plimsolls for Preschool PE and insisted on wearing them around the house, even when in his PJ's!
Day 239. Sultry 3yr old going of on 'Holiday' with his packing!
Day 240. We met friends for the day and took all the kiddies tenpin bowling. The monkeys loved it. Big monkey took it upon himself to carry the balls over to the ramp for his fellow players, most of which were girls. So gallant of him, bless him.
Day 241. An evening out with the girls. The Pimms went down very well!
Day 242. A late afternoon trip to Southend Pier for us all. The train was a hit with the monkeys and dinner out afterwards was too.
Just a few days left of the holidays then big monkey goes into year two and little monkey gets his fifteen hours at Preschool. Come next Friday I'll have no idea what to do with myself!

We've had another book by award winning author Margaret Wise Brown to review. This one is called 'Away in My Aeroplane'! This is another highly illustrated picture book from the fab guys at Parragon Books, sent to us as part of their book buddies scheme.
A story about flying high in an aeroplane, waving to the sun and shouting to the rain! A rhyming fun and lighthearted story for children to enjoy. Each page has just a few words and fantastic drawings by Henry Fisher, award winning designer, art director and children's book illustrator. Big monkey can easily read this delightful book and both monkeys have enjoyed listening to the story being read to them. We really like this lovely story. It really helps to open up the readers imagination, taking them into a world of make believe.
This book can be purchased from Amazon with a RRP of £5.99
It's been a long time coming but today there was much excitement in the house! Big monkey lost his first tooth. He was so pleased bless him. For months now, he has been asking when he might lose a tooth? His classmates and friends had generally all started to lose theirs months ago. Not him though! On our last visit to the dentist, we were informed big monkey already had 3 of his adult back teeth, and up to three loose baby teeth, but they have clung on!
His response today. "Mum, mum, my tooth's come out!......that means I get some money!" Oh, yes, of course it does son! He has written to the tooth fairy and left his tooth under his pillow with the letter, and as usual fell asleep almost as soon as his head hit the pillow. I wonder how much the tooth fairy will leave for his first tooth? £2, £1, 50p? I suppose it depends how generous she is feeling!
Now, tooth fairies aside, big monkey is of course chuffed he has lost his first tooth. I am too, but oh so slightly sad that he is another step further to growing up!!
The summer holidays are soon over but this last week we've been away and had lots of fun, doing something a little different from the norm! The monkeys, daddy and I went to LolliBop and then I took the monkeys on my parents boat for a few days. We only went to the Milton Keynes area but there was so much to see and do there. I hope I've tried to capture some of our antics. Here's our round up for days 229 - 235
Day 229. The monkeys enjoyed some sand play at the Vita Coco Kids beach at LolliBop last Sunday. We had a fab day out.
Day 230. The scenery outside my parents narrow boat on waking Monday morning.
Day 231. Big monkey wanted to go on the trampolines at Willen Lakes Tuesday afternoon. There is so much to do there.
Day 232. And Pull. Holding the boat in whilst we fill the tank with water. Of course they knew it was tied up!
Day 233. And race. Pretend play on the motorbike at the park.
Day 234. Keeping quiet playing with Party Rings at the picnic.....he was meant to be sharing them out!
Day 235. Just about to throw himself into a backwards somersault. So chuffed he finally mastered this today.
Lots of outdoor activity this week and fresh air too! The project 365 has been so much fun to join in with and I'm hoping it remains so. Linking up with The Boy and Me, why not take a look and see who else has joined in too.
