There is always so much to do at Hatton it's difficult to fit it all into one day. As this was the warmest day we had visited we spent a lot of time in with the sand and diggers. In fact I truly believe my children would have been happy to spend the whole day there.
We also spent time with the animals. It was the first time that the Little Man had fed the goats and he was really timid at first, I think he thought he was going to lose a finger.
We spent some time panning for gold which is always fun and you get a free medal when you collect 10 pieces of gold. Then we had ice cream before venturing over to the playground.
Star was beginning to get really tired and we couldn't risk burning her out completely so she went for a relaxing walk to look at the birds with her Daddy while I took the other two to play on the little fairground rides.
Before we left we had a very short browse around the shops. Daddy and I keep saying that we will come here one day without the kids so we can look properly, but we haven't done so yet. Star had spotted some bath bombs though and despite her aversion to bubble bath she seems to enjoy bath bombs so I bought her a pack to share with her sister.
It's so lovely that we are able to get out and about again. We tried to get out last summer but with Star being either in her halo or cervical collar it was difficult to find things to do. She is much better now but still has so many difficulties that a fun day out is, well not so much fun anymore. I think it's important that the other two do not miss out though, and Star needs the fresh air and exercise even if it does wear her out so we will continue to do as much as possible. I don't like to focus on Star's difficulties too much here on this blog but I do have a blog dedicated to her journey and I have blogged this day out from a different perspective over there if you are interested to see.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, let's stay in touch, you can also find me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and I love following back.
