Fourth Birthday Celebrations

We're in Leicester for a long weekend of celebrating our youngest grandchild's birthday; she's four.

We gave her some stuff called kinetic sand- which is like the sand you'd play with in a sandpit only it sticks together in spite of being dry. Also it comes in rainbow colours with sparkles in it. The texture is not what you think it's going to be- not granular so much as fibrous. Strange stuff. I don't know how they make it.

There was cake this afternoon and it came with a firework in the middle.

Tomorrow there's a celebration for 14 or 15 small people at the Paradise Something Farm Park (I asked Ailz for the name and that's what she came up with.) If it stays fine we'll be petting baby goats, if it rains we'll be partying in the reptile house.
