The eldest and I went to Chichester Festival Theatre last week to see Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo. I have never taken him to the theatre before and we were both really looking forward to it. J loves dinosaurs and was learning all about them at school before half-term, so the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
Thursday was my special day with Thing 1 (thing 2 goes to pre school that day). We went to London on the train with thing 3 and I chose the Natural History Museum to visit for the day. We met our friends at Victoria and got the bus towards the museum. The boys thought that the bus trip was brilliant.
The main restaurant was heaving and the boys had spent their pocket money in the shop, so we grabbed a sandwich from the central small coffee and sandwich stall which was surprisingly good. I had a tasty tandoori chicken wrap and the boys shared a cheese and ham baguette. The good was fresh and they had used quality ingredients. My cappuccino was also good (so important to me due to the usual garbage so many places make).
After a brief trip to see the blue whale we went outside and the boys ran around playing dinosaurs in the bushes outside for a good hour before the bus back to Victoria.
This was such a memorable day out and a precious one as well. It’s only 6 weeks until Jack starts “big school” and so we are making good memories every Thursday.
I would really recommend visiting this museum for years to come as there will always be enough to see. It’s free to get in (unless you want to see one of the special exhibitions) and if you take a packed lunch with you, will only cost the price of your transport.
