Pups and Confetti

Happy Friday everyone! We're almost at the end of the school holidays and I for one am both happy and sad about that fact. Happy because I'm definitely ready for Vala to be back at school and to get back into a routine again but sad because we have had a lot of fun these holidays and we won't be taking as many big adventures once school is back. But, with the end of the holidays mere days away, I made sure to plan a couple more activities for us all, including taking the kids to meet two pawsome pups.

Jordan was back at work sadly so it was just the kids and I heading into town to meet Chase and Marshall from the Paw Patrol! Vala has loved Paw Patrol for years but Flynn has very recently been showing a lot more interest in the show. This was his first time meeting suit characters and I wasn't sure how he'd react. I was worried the giant pups might scare him a little but thankfully, it was the complete opposite. He screamed and pulled away from me in order to get to the pups. He didn't want to wait his turn, he wanted to go now! We met Chase first and when it was our turn, Flynn ran over and stopped dead in front of him, looking up at him. The woman carer turned him around for a photo and Flynn backed up and sat himself down on Chase's foot. It was too cute! After Chase, we waited 30 minutes to meet Marshall and Flynn did the same thing, only this time he didn't hesitate. He ran right over to Marshall and perched himself on the pups foot. Almost like he knew that was what he was supposed to do. Both kids high fived the pups as we left and then went and participated in the Pup Pup Boogie until we moved onto to something else we've done before...

...The Confetti Room! It closes tomorrow and I wanted to try and get the kids in one last time so we sneakily managed to take one of the last walk in slots. I felt a little bad about it but I didn't know how many walk in slots they had left until afterwards. Besides, the kids had queued for over an hour to meet the Paw Patrol pups and they deserved to have a bit of fun. Flynn of course didn't hesitate the moment he saw the confetti and rolled around it. Vala made confetti angels and some random little girl proceeded to throw bucket loads of confetti all over me for the fun of it. After 15 minutes, our session was over and on Vala's request, we had Subway for lunch. Whilst there, she needed the toilet and when we got in there and she removed her jumpsuit to use the toilet, tonnes of confetti fell out all over the floor. It was almost as if she'd farted confetti it was hilarious. To make it even funnier, the hand dryer blew the confetti everywhere and we ended up leaving the toilet looking like a circus parade had just gone through it. It certainly brightened up the dull and kinda gross toilet.

After lunch we made our way home and Flynn fell asleep on the bus. He wasnt the only one tuckered out though. Once home all three of us had naps. It was a fun afternoon and seeing my kids so happy, made me happy. Going out shortly to a new park and then tomorrow we've got my friend coming to visit, so we've got a couple more things to look forward to before school goes back.

Until next time,
Alli xo
