It’s chocolate. Need I say more?
Probably not but you know I will!
When making our plans for the week we were to spend together, the moms decided a day with something special for the kids was in order. After a day of travel followed by a day of walking around London, a fun, kid-focused day hit the spot.
This was also the day that I got to check something off my unwritten bucket list. I got to drive in ENGLAND! Two hours to Cadbury World, then two hours back. It was not as hard as I though it would be, with the large roundabouts being the most difficult part.
We ate a picnic lunch in the minibus before going into the attraction, which was fascinating. It was a smaller place than the Hershey Factory but had a similar feel. The boys had a great time learning about chocolate and how it is made. The ‘moving room’ was a also big hit. (We were warned that people with heart trouble or other health issues should sit on the back row. Apparently, the back row isn’t nearly as exciting as the first six rows! I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll just say we were all taken by surprise!!)
Kayla enjoyed hers, too, and Aimee snapped this picture as I walked past Kayla, capturing her little bird mouth open and ready!
We arrived home and made fancy sandwiches for dinner, saving the big Spaghetti meal for the next night, our first full day to just stay home. Kayla and Parker played in the bath while Connor watched the action, fairly sure he didn’t want to get in, too.
In spite of the early symptoms of cabin fever, we had a fun day hanging out and being together again and enjoyed knowing that our husbands were doing something they’ve always dreamed (and talked) of doing: Mancaction!
