Our weekend

I really am appreciating our time together as a family now that it feels so limited, what with uni and full time school. Yesterday was my friends little girls 5th birthday party. Then today I asked the children what they would like to do and the answer was to go on the train to London.
Stephanie is really getting into her writing and drawing since she has learnt that she can write real words, so understandaby she needed to bring her pad and pens with her. This is Stephanie on the train doing her favourite thing;

At the train station I picked up a leaflet of different attractions we can visit, so whilst we were waiting we decided we would go to the London transport museum, why have we never been before considering how both of my children love trains and buses so much?

  This are pictures of both my babies driving a bus, don't you just love the uniforms??
They also had a turn at driving trains, had a look around some trams and saw horse poo on the floor. Yes I did just say horse poo on the floor. It was in context and thank fully not real! The museum has horse drawn carriages with model horses you can look at. The replica poo is from the replica horses and typically my children thought it was hilarious!

After we had been around the museum we went for a walk and found ourselves in Covent Garden. It really was a day for exploration. Stephanie was very unsure what to make of this statue though she couldn't work out if he was real or not- Bless!

Ok for some reason this picture won't upload, will try again another day...

Then on the way home of course the children indulged in a a little ore drawing/writing. Playing very sweetly on the whole journey home, possibly helped somewhat by the fact we were on a high speed train so we were home pretty swiftly.
