Halloween 2013 at Legoland Discovery Manchester!

We had a FAB Halloween!!!!

We went to Legoland Discovery in Manchester for the day. The website suggests it takes just a couple of hours to go round, but we were there from 10.30 till gone 3pm! And the kids weren't bored for so much as a second of it!

We got dressed up in our Halloween costumes (well, the kids did, and I wore a cape. Hubby side-stepped that one) and had a blast!

Jack is Lego obsessed, and his little brothers want to emulate him in every way. Hubby is pretty keen on Lego too, so when the guy guiding the "factory tour" started to hand out Limited Edition Halloween Bricks - only available from Legoland Discovery in Manchester for the Brick-or-Treat event this year - his eyes almost popped out of his head!

Jack got to be one of the "Helper" on the tour too which just made his day! We also got to do the Master Builders Workshop and made Lego Ghosts (although they were gutted they didn't got those kits for free, you could by them for just £3).

I think it's great how they had given so much of the display a Halloween theme! Webs, ghosts and skeletons all over the place, and even a witch flying around under the air ship!

We all had a great time on the rides. The clear favourite with all of us was the Kingdom Quest Lazor - Hubby scored "Legend" which was a bit of a jip since I was shooting for George as well as me, while holding on to George! Jack loved driving his own Lego car, and even Tom & George got a real kick out of the 4D cinema. Me and the Hubby worked up a sweat taking Jack & Tom on the Merlin's Adventure ride, cycling hard to life the cars up high. The bigger lads had a great time in the soft play, and Georgie thought being sat in a huge tub of Lego and being allowed to build anything he wanted without fighting over the bricks was fab - we made a ducky together!

If I had to say there was anything to improve it would be the cafe.... it simply isn't big enough! And we would have all liked a bigger range of bits in the brick n mix and build a character in the shop - but since it's the end of Half Term I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe they'd just run low on a lot of stuff.

But overall we LOVED IT! The boys want to make this a Halloween tradition, and Jack's also asking if we can go back for Christmas too. We will defiantly be going back at some point soon. I'm sure there are things we missed.....

Oh! And here are this years pumpkins!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
