On Monday we went to Charlotte's Ice Cream Parlour for a kids birthday party. It was basically a farm that sells loads of different flavoured ice creams. I chose two scoops, cappuccino and coconut! Thinking about it now it sounds like an odd mix but it definitely worked! It was delicious. We finished off with Mcdonalds where I got my fave - mozzarella dippers! Not the healthiest but at birthday parties you've got to feast!
Tuesday we went to the seaside at Scarborough. We went to the slot machines and I won a pokemon keyring which I put straight on my purse! We got a coasthopper double decker bus to the sea life centre and I completely fell in love with a rescued seal called Dill. He was so shy at first, but we kept returning to him and he was getting so excited, paddeling over to say hello! We had to leave eventually but I hope he soon recovers and gets back into the wild.
We then needed a home day on Wednesday, we were so tired and needed a day off of spending money. We invited the kids over to make rainbow cakes, although they ended up only being pink and white. We decorated them with peanut butter, m&m's, butter icing and skittles! They loved it and had so much fun mixing, although at one point cake mix was flinged all over the kitchen..
On Thursday we went to Yorkshire nature reserve where we got to see actual polar bears! I didn't even realise that was possible in England, but they have 4. They were so fun, swimming on their backs and play fighting. We also saw tigers which were really playful. I got a funny video on my phone of two sneaking up on another and chasing it out the water. I love it when they have fun, unlike other places where they spend the whole time pasing up and down. It was nice to watch!
