As you all know one of our favourite things to do is go on a little adventure by train. This weekend we headed to Cambridge for a #RailAdventure with Greater Anglia. Unlike our previous adventures we didn’t actually have a plan, we just hopped on the train and let day unfold before us.
The East Anglia Transport Museum is another new find for us this year. Unlike some of the other places we have visited for the first time, this one we hadn’t even heard of! This is really sad as I genuinely feel like I have deprived L of a few years worth of fun. Simply put, we love it and if you are looking for a fun day out over the summer holidays I couldn’t recommend this more.
This bank holiday week husb and I are both off work, woop woop! So what better way to kick things off than to head to the coast on the train. Greater Anglia have started a new campaign #LetTheAdventureBegin and by hopping onto a train at our local station we did have an adventure!
L is a very lucky little boy. He doesn’t realise the extent of this. He looks forward to the postman arriving and he will ask the same three questions. ‘Is there a parcel today?’ ‘Is it a present for me?’ ‘Has it got wheels mummy?’ Usually I have to say I don’t know, but when I saw the box from Jazwares arrive I was safely able to answer yes to all three.
You may remember during the Easter Holidays Greater Anglia launched their #RailAdventure campaign and we headed out for a great Adventure to Somerleyton Hall. Well to kick off the Half Term we’ve been on another #RailAdventure, this time we went to Stowmarket and The Museum of East Anglian Life.
L and I have been playing with a new app based on the popular Dinosaur Train TV Series from the Jim Henson company, Dinosaur Train: Paint and Match by Kuato Studios.
This is an educational app with two game options aimed at children aged 5 and under, so perfect for L who is 3 years old. You can set up how long they are allowed to play for in the app settings before it will stop and won’t start again for an hour. Continue reading Dinosaur Train: Paint & Match App Review
This Easter L has been lucky enough to be one of the first kids to get to try out some of the range of New Chuggington Toys before they have even hit the shelves.
As regular readers know he loves anything train related and getting a delivery of toy trains the day after our big #RailAdventure was awesome. Continue reading Our Delivery of New Chuggington Toys
This summer I had promised L a trip on a train. I hadn’t given it much thought, I just knew it would be something he would enjoy. So when Greater Anglia launched their #RailAdventure campaign and wanted to know if we would like to take part I leapt at the chance.
We are lucky enough to be situated close to two rail stations, Diss and Wymondham. In fact we spend quite a bit of time at Wymondham Station thanks to the delightful Station Bistro. A lovely establishment that allows us to enjoy great food whilst watching the trains go by, it one of L’s and mine favourite spots.
