Family Day Out at Rare Breeds Farm

| September 7, 2013

We had a great family day out at Rare Breeds Farm in Kent for Ilya’s 3rd Birthday celebration. Ilya is Imogen’s cousin and he is such a charming, gentle and fun little boy. Imogen was so excited to see him and they spent the day viewing the farm animals, enjoying a special Birthday party lunch, watching butterflies in the Butterfly Tunnel, playing in the playground and going for a ride in the tractor trailer seated on hay bales.


Imogen and Ilya adore one another and shared their delight of being on the farm. Holding hands they chattered and giggled as they ran around in the sunshine.

Natural History Museum

| March 18, 2013

We went to the Natural History Museum last week in South Kensington, London. Hubby and I thought it would be a fun day out for us all on Imogen’s 2nd Birthday and the museum certainly didn’t disappoint a two year old who loves animals!

We highly recommend the Museum as an educational and fun family day out in London.

Imogen had her first journey on the London Underground Tube from Tower Hill to South Kensington. As a city girl born and bred she climbed into her seat and waited to go.

Imogen loved showing Mummy and Daddy the animals in the museum. There was plenty of finger pointing as Imogen went around and highlighted the incredible animals she saw.

The Dinosaur exhibition was very exciting with several moving replicas of dinosaurs including a T.rex. After closing her eyes initially when she saw the T.rex she then warmed to it when we named it ‘Mummy Dinosaur’ and she asked to see it again!

The amazing display of large Mammals includes a Blue Whale, the largest creature ever.

Inside the Creepy Crawlies exhibition we found spiders, beetles, crabs, butterflies, scorpions and many other species. And there were some extra big specimens!
