The kids loved the playground, which was divided into 3 big areas. There was much swinging, climbing and king-of-the-castling.
We met some new people. We'd all come from far and wide, most from much further south or west than us, but it was lovely to see some new faces and make contact with other families.
Freddie played around with a cool exhibit. It's a huge cylinder of water, and when you turn the wheel it creates a water funnel that can get bigger and smaller.
The main bit of the science centre had loads to do. A ball floating on a air stream, a hot air balloon that we heated the air up for (to 70 or 80 degrees), a big keyboard, a bubble making pump and a whole bunch of other bits and bobs.
The kids really enjoyed the day. The journey home was good too - Freddie played games on my phone (and won at Uno and back gammon yay!), while Betsy and I sang along to her Silly Songs tape. After listening to it countless times she knows lots of the lyrics.
