The CROCODILE party (A)

After Eddie's Peter Pan party (April '09), Seb announced to the family that he would be having a Crocodile party for his next birthday. This concept was raised frequently, at least every few weeks (even in prayers of pre-emptive thanks to God at bedtime). So, 9 months of this was time to deliver! The pressure was on, but I had my Gemma at hand, and her Barney on photo shoot...Here are some of the results!

The boys were in great form, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves very much. I know I did. Thank you everyone who helped, who was able to come, and to those who love SEB...he is a lucky boy to have you in his life! Happy Crocodile Party!!!! We bid you farewell!

Family trip to the zoo (A)

Instead of pictures of the animals, which I know you all wish were here, I have put pictures of us. Here I am in the komodo dragon enclosure.....or, just outside it!

The boys in the butterfly tunnel....lovely and warm in there, we sat there for ages.

Looking very accomplished in the play 'enclosure'...are the ropes and bars to keep them in?

Eddie and Anita: Blackpool and back (A)

We start our trip just down the road...There's someone special up north we need to see. I hope we find her....

Our 9.30am train to Glasgow.

Mmmmm, breakfast on the train. Dipping mini pancakes into syrup

Games and a fortune cookie from last night's Chinese take-out. Eddie's badge from last year's panto.

Lunch and a picture of the gingerbread house wall we were bringing for Gemma.

What's this?? Sun on my face!?

We arrived!

Walking through the streets of central Blackpool....Hey, who's this?!

Looking for Tinkerbell.....

The Grand Theatre....Maybe she's in here?

Finding Tinkerbell in the audience

Our real Tinkerbell on the stage

If only I had thought to take pix of the lovely reunion of Gemm and Ed at the stage door after the show...Hugs and kisses all round!

Peter Pan doing puzzles on the train home, and playing on my Iphone on the final stretch home in the bus! Home by 9pm. A long day, but it was worth it!
