It’s been another quiet week here in the Toby Goes Bananas house. It was my birthday on Thursday but with no babysitter and work the next day anyway we didn’t really do anything – I was suffering with a sore arm after having my whooping cough vaccine in the afternoon but we did have a chippy tea and sticky toffee pudding and ice cream for tea though!
We don’t really get much time together as a family during the week, by the time we’ve got home from work and picked Toby up from nursery we only see him for a couple of hours at most in the evenings. Weekends are always filled with chores like washing and shopping but we have been trying to make sure we get out and do something together every weekend. It’s easier now Toby only has a nap in the afternoon, as long as we are up and about early enough (although 5 am on Saturday was a bit too early thanks Toby!) there’s plenty of time to go somewhere or do something before lunch.
This week we decided to go and have a look at the Kelpies, two giant horses head statues in Falkirk which is not far from where we live. I had been before but Barry hadn’t so we drove over for a look. We managed to get our Me & Mine photo taken in front of the horses (before Toby decided he really didn’t want to be in the buggy any more) and then he had fun walking around whilst I tried to make sure he didn’t fall into any of the water surrounding the statues! There was a grassy hill where he was safe enough just to run around by himself and he was loving climbing up to the top then running back down to me for a big cuddle. He’s such a bundle of energy so our weekend adventures always try and include somewhere he can blow off some steam. How happy does he look here?
