For one of Noah’s birthday treats, me and Daddy took him to London where we went to the National History Museum, Science Museum and out for a spot of lunch – all without his little sister. We had a day of just Noah and doing what Noah wanted to do, it was a lovely day but we all missed little Isla.
In the morning we took a stroll around the National History Museum learning about where all the animals came from that we see in our little Country walks and investigations back home and we learnt a lot. Noah especially liked the bugs room where he got to play with some of the interactive activities including bugs and he was a bit dumbstruck when we came to the big scorpion – he just stood staring at it.
We queued about 30 minutes for the T Rex, he cried the entire time we were queuing, namely because it was nearly lunchtime and when we finally got to T Rex he did cheer up a little. The T Rex was huge and I love the way he looks like he’s in his natural habitat. Can you imagine one of those roaming the country when you are walking your dogs in the morning?
We took a stroll to Prezzo for lunch where he had a whole pizza all to himself and we talked about what we had seen in the morning and all the cars, buses and trains we had been in already. He loved his adventure and especially loved his pizza at this point. It was such a nice time to appreciate how grown up the little man is without little Isla running around to annoy him. It is completely different just having a 3 year old without the 18 month old around, I cannot believe just how different.
After our yummy lunch we walked to the Science Museum and Noah was in his element here, he ran around staring at all the vehicles. His favourite being the old trains. He was just amazed by all the lights, the grandeur of the building and the fascinating items within it. I am really glad we took him to the big smoke to take in some of where his country ways have come from.
He had a very busy day of learning and being amazed, he slept the entire journey home and woke up the next morning with a very happy face. He is such a delight, and he said his favourite part of the day was the train journey – that’s just Noah all over!
