Stevens Birthday (a very long post)

Hello everyone. I thought that since I don't have a card to show, I would show some pics of Stevens fourth birthday yesterday. You will have to excuse the angle on some of them - I don't know what Kim was doing, lol.

We have had a fantastic weekend. On Saturday, it was off to East Links Adventure Fortress. Lovely weather and lots of fab stuff for the kids. A huge fort thing with massive slide, climbing, rop ladders; soft play; ball firing zone; go karts; pedal bike things to go round the farm; trampolines; toy tractors; a park and of course, the animals too. A brilliant day...the only down side was that Steven was a bit under the weather...but he still enjoyed himself.

Then, yesterday, the day started off with presents at home then Granny's. After, we met my friends, Lizzie and Robert adn their wee girl, Sophie at MacDonalds. Then it was off for a trip to our local fire station. Steven loves fire engines and Fireman Sam and was very excited about this. The fire officers were so nice and friendly - excellent with the kids. They brought the engine out and put the hose on. Then, they let them sit in, turned on lights and sirens and let Jack dress as a Fireman. They showed them all the different tools and then Stevens favourite of all - the firemans pole. Unfortunately, due to Health and Safety, They couldn't go down it but... Debbie did to show the kids. The kids loved it and I will have to make a card and hand it in with a small gift to say thank you because the officers were so nice. It was all a bit much for Steven and Sophie but the rest of us loved it.

Next, it was home for visitors and cake and lots of toy building and playing.

We then spent the rest of the evening building the meccano set my dad got Steven - 2 1/2 hours...Only for him to take it apart again today, lol.

Have had a great weekend and am really looking forward to Jack's birthday in a fortnight
