A Trip to Town and a Little Art

It’s the second week of the kids Easter holiday so we decided a little trip into town would be nice. We started off with a visit to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, but first up the kids enjoyed a nosey at the fountain in Chamberlain Square.

It was a lovely sunny day, although still a little on the chilly side.

In the museum we visited the Ancient Egyptians, took a look at the history of Birmingham and checked out the art of the Pre-Raphaelites. This is probably less than half of the museum but we had already been there a couple of hours and it was lunch time, so we left the rest for another day.

We did spend a little time with the Pre-Raphaelites re-creating a little art.

On our way to lunch we had to spend some time with the Floozie in the Jacuzzi as she is fondly known around these parts.

It was so nice to just get out and about and the Little Man was a true star on two counts, we didn’t take his buggy and he had to walk everywhere which he did without complaint, and he didn’t have a nappy on and managed to stay dry.

In fact they were all so well behaved we ended the day at the toy shop where they were given a little pocket money to spend.

    A fantastic family day out! Fingers crossed that this will be the start of more dry days with the Little Man. Lovely pictures of your family having fun together. Thanks for linking up to Country Kids.

    Love the 'floozie in the jacuzzi' term. Not heard that before!

      not entirely sure if it's purely a 'native' term, it took us a while to get used to her, but wouldn't be without her now 🙂

    Proof that it's possible to get out and about in the fresh air, even in the city. I love the artwork ideas, I might take some pastels with us the next time we go to the museum.

      The girls had good fun, the Little Man wanted to run around though.

    Looks like you had a great time, it's so nice to just get outdoors isn't it. Bless Little Man for walking too 🙂

      He's a great little walker, never complains, sadly he's not so well behaved in familiar areas.

      I haven't had a car for over a year now and I hate taking the buggy on public transport so I'm happy to be out of this stage now. Although, it seems I've been pushing one for 8 years now so it's going to be strange!

      thanks, I am feeling rather proud of the Little man at the moment 🙂
