Take a 3-year-old and a 1-year-old, pack them into the car, drive for a couple of hours, surround them with the characters and themes they know and love from TV, fill them with food, stick them in a room full of fun, take them swimming. Oh, and all on the 3-year-old’s birthday. Best. Weekend. Ever!
A few months ago, we were invited to go along to In The Night Garden Live at Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park. As the date drew closer, unfortunately we weren’t able to make it, so Lucy over at Real Mum Reviews went along with her girls and gave her thoughts on the show.
**This post is in collaboration with Travelodge** When it comes to taking very young kids to something as out of their usual routine as a festival, the notion could well strike fear in the hearts of parents! Phil and I certainly had our reservations when, in August 2015, we took a then 13 month old Toby to CarFest South. Oh, I was also 7 weeks’ pregnant with Martha. And Toby didn’t sleep through the night. And he wasn’t particularly keen on new people…
Yesterday, Phil and I saw Sir Elton John perform at Peterborough’s ABAX stadium. What we experienced, what we saw and heard and felt, was greatly needed and transcended mere notes on a piano.
