Today we loaded up the vehicle and headed down to Storybook Gardens in London. Visiting SG was something I was really looking forward to doing with Alex since I had gone as a child. I must admit, the park as a whole was a little ahead of him – next year he will be really getting into it and will be able to recognize many more of the storybook characters – but there was enough to keep Alex entertained. There is a little farm area where he got to see peacocks up close, a cow, sheep, goats, chickens, and guinea pigs. Alex cried when we took him away from the cow – he just loves them! The playground equipment was way too advanced. There is a toddler set which I’m sure he could have had a lot of fun on – but it was really busy and poor guy would have been just plowed down. I tried to crawl through some of it with him, but it wasn’t really adult friendly either. But then there was the splash zone. That was right up Alex’s alley! The spray guns and the waterfall were a little advanced but the rest was a lot of fun.
Before we left Alex and I had a little chat with Humpty Dumpty – such a nice fellow.
