Williamson's Park Butterfly House & Mini Beasts
Well it was just me, Jack & Freddie today. Tom & George wont stop fighting so they have been "grounded" for the day and had to stay home with Daddy. Mind you, I get so little quality time with Jack that this isn't a bad thing for us at all, and Tom is now scared of butterflies so we wouldn't have got here this summer if they had all come out today.
The weather is a bit iffy today to. It's been really warm, but very muggy, raining on and off, and it feel like we're due a thunder storm. Made for a cracking photo of the Ashton Memorial though!
A good day to do something indoors!
Jack loves the butterfly house. He spent ages waiting quietly and stock still (such an amazing feat for my fidget bum son) in the hope that a butterfly might choose to land on him.
And one did.... the tattiest, scrattiest butterfly you have ever seen landed on his HEAD! I got some photos of it so that Jack could actually SEE the butterfly that landed on him. I think he'd hoped to get a good long look at a butterfly if it landed on him, but oh hum. Sorry kid!
During a break in the rain we had a look round the garden, and Jack was thrilled to find some Bug Hotels which he remembered learning about in a school project we did together a few months ago. Then we had a look at the Mini Beasts, then the birds in the aviary, and the rabbits & guinea pigs in the pets area.
We had planned to get some lunch in the lovely cafe, but everyone else in the whole of Lancaster seems to have had the same idea and it was rammed.... so we nipped into town for a Subway instead which just finished the day perfectly for Jack!
Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
