This week we went to Cleethorpes to visit family and celebrate Rowan’s first birthday.
The weather wasn’t bad other than some brief rain on Saturday. We visited a small tropical themed zoo where Jack got to stroke a Rhinoceros Iguana and hand feed chipmunks and goats. He loved the chipmunks and was singing the theme tune from the chipmunks cartoon to them. Rowan loves animals and was laughing at them climbing all over the mesh cage. We also saw some baby guinea pigs that looked just like Tsum Tsums, spiders, a pig, snakes, chickens and Jack’s favourite, the axotl.
After the zoo of went to soft play which always goes down well with Jack. Rowan seemed to enjoy his first time, especially the ball pit. We managed to catch some new Pokemon on the way home and then had a nice dinner and evening with family.
On Sunday we went to Pleasure Island theme park for a few hours and Jack won himself a Minion toy on a crane game. We watched a bird show and Jack got to hold one of the parrots. Then we headed to the boating lake to feed the geese, ducks and other birds there.
