We cannot thank you all enough for obviously tiring out your children on Monday as they all had lights out at 10 pm last night and were very quiet, mostly not waking until we woke them at 7 am. We enjoyed an evening of sports and outdoor fun before hot chocolate and bed.
This morning we were up and showered, enjoying bacon baguettes before setting off at 9 for Blackgang Chine. Temperatures began to soar to 25 degrees as the day went on, we enjoyed the water slide, cliff hanger roller coaster, cowboy town, pirate barrels, maze, dinosaur land, fantasy land, haunted house and much more.
You would be amazed at how many types of sugar products your children have sampled from the shops! A roll-on type sugar syrup in various bright colours seemed to be the most popular with 'toxic waste' sour sweets as close second.
Later in the afternoon we went to the Donkey Sanctuary seeing the many rescue donkeys and loved seeing a 14 day old Shetland pony called Dougie.
6pm tonight and we are enjoying a BBQ and games outside before hot chocolate and bed later.
We just want to mention to you that so many members of staff at the places we have visited and members of the public have commented on how polite and well- behaved your children are. They are an absolute credit to both you and themselves.
Funny comments from today were too many to mention but a few included:
- Oh no, I've put suncream on my face and forgotten I was wearing sun glasses.
- If I can have 5 things for lunch, can I have this ( 6th item)?
- Who gave birth to the Shetland pony foal? The donkey or pony?
- What animals will we see at the Donkey Sanctuary?
- Is the BBQ inside or out?
We enjoyed games with YMCA staff in the evening last night and then went to bed at 9.30pm after hot chocolate. We were all very tired and ready for bed. We fell asleep nearly straight away.
