After last week’s wash out and wonky rocket, I was glad that this Friday was sunny and warm.
We started off the day with a haircut, which luckily for me, RJ actually enjoys because he gets to sit in a little tractor and gets a lolly afterwards.
On the way RJ decided to play up on the train. He’s really pushing his boundaries at the moment – and as long as he’s not putting himself in any trouble, I’m inclined to let him. In this case it was sitting up by the tube doors.
After spending a bloody fortune on school shoes in Westfields we headed over to the Olympic Park. It was 4 year old heaven, and Mumzilla hell.
There are loads of rides for kids, plus a little beach of all things (and a bar, thank god. Not that I indulged this time as I was on my own with him!)
We went on the flying swings (not too scary)
And we finished up with the somewhat more sedate mini boats.
You have to buy £1 tokens for the rides, which are between 2-4 tokens each (the boats and mini rollercoaster were 4, the trampoline and flying swings were 2 and 10 minutes on the mega slide of death was 3)
Polished off with a hot dog and burger for lunch (standard manky funfair fare) the whole day cost me about £30 which I thought was a bit steep but I didn’t mind after last week’s soft play let down. I should have got a bucket & spade to make the most of the beach as well but after watching the boy on all the rides I was starting to flake so was happy to schlep home and get ready for a date night with RJs daddy – thanks to the little sis for babysitting!
