A Rare Day With Gracie

Having four children means I sometimes struggle to share my time equally between them. Things happen and I end up having to spend more time with one daughter than I do with the others. It also seems a rare occurance that I get uninterupted time with one of my lovely girls.

Yesterday was the day for Gracie's playschool trip. Parents are required to go with their children, this was a great opportunity for me to get some one on one time with my lovely little three year old.

The trip was to Wingham Wildlife Park in Kent. Gracie actually made everyone's day by a passing comment she made whilst we began her journey, we had only just started going and she said excitedly, "this is the way to the tip", Daddy Hazelden really takes her on the best trips :)

We saw lots of animals ranging from tigers, penguins, monkeys, flamingoes, owls, crocodiles and squirmy snakes.


Bless my Gracie Cakie, her favourite parts of the day were when she got to choose the ice cream that I had promised her and of course lunch time, anyone would think I starve my children!! Infact her first words when we arrived were "is it lunch time yet?".


Of course there was the obligitory posing for photos, Gracie magically turned into some different animals. I wish you could have heard her roar when she turned into the tiger.


I took so many photos yesterday but I didn't think you would want to see a whole albums worth so I just put a few more together in one picture. My favourite photo of the day has to be Gracie leaping off of a bench, nice to be so care free!!


Of course the day wouldn't be complete without a little paddy throwing. My lovely daughter decided mummy's company was indeed rubbish and would much prefer to spend the day with her favourite teacher Christina, I was really feeling the love then, the little monkey.

So have any of you been on your children's school trips this year, where did you go??

    1. That's a shame that they haven't done any trips, perhaps something you could suggest to them?
