This weekend we went to my work summer barbecue. Thomas was the youngest child there, but that didn’t hold him back at all. He had his first experience of a full sized bouncy castle, and whilst he was a bit unsure to begin with, he ended up jumping with joy!
He had lots of fun with “BUBBLE” and trying to learn to blow them himself
He had lots of fun making noise with the “Boom Bats”. And notice that T-shirt? Apt for a dentist’s son, don’t you think?
When it came to the food, despite having eaten lunch before we set off for the mid afternoon event, he couldn’t stop stuffing his face. I took a sausage on to a plate to cut open and cool down for him, not noticing him worming his way between the people at the food table until he emerged with a sausage of his own which he stuffed straight in to his mouth whole! My boy absolutely loves sausages.
And he also loved the ice cream during down time from his bouncing.
In pre-baby days we would have enjoyed a lovely afternoon in the sun, drinking a few beers and staying on in to the evening. Things have changed now, as we don’t get a moment’s rest whilst he charges around, and then we leave early to put him to bed. But watching him exploring new places, new people and new activities, throwing himself in to them with his whole soul and lighting up with joy when he’s having fun – it’s completely magical.
