Family Fun Day

It's been half term here in the UK this week, which meant I had both boys yesterday, rather than just Laurie and then the school pickup for Rufus.  What to do with them both?

Fortunately, it was a sunny day so we headed into Stamford to check out the Family Fun Day at the Arts Centre.  The theme was Space which is always a safe bet with the boys.  Lots of arts and crafts, face painting, drumming, puppets, balloons, children!!

Our first stop was the arts and crafts in the main hall where we made rockets and drew on the satellite.

We then watched the UV puppet show which was interesting, one or two I found slightly disturbing but the boys seemed ok with it, followed by cartoons, running around with their friends and generally having a fun with balloons. We queued for face painting but Laurie got bored so we abandoned that idea.

Next stop was lunch in Cafe Nero

Followed by a run around on the park, before the rain finally set in late afternoon.

All in all a good day out and free to boot, thank you Stamford Art Centre

By the way if you were wondering who made my birthday cake then Beckie now has a Facebook page - Beckie's Cake Delice, pop over and take a look at her beautiful creations and let her know what you think.


  1. My turn tomorrow, my grand daughters have an extra Monday off tomorrow so I've got all 4 to amuse. It looked like you had a wonderful time, lots of fun.

  2. What a clever fun day. My boys would have loved it.
