Gullivers world....

At the weekend we suprised the kids and took them to gullivers world - we told them we were going shopping so they were made up when we arrived there :)

Dora and deigo are there all through 2009 too, they loved them :)

It was a lovely sunny day aswell which made the day even better :)

We took them on their first BIG rollercoaster as kobe was 'just' big enough.... they didn't like it! I don't mind rollercoasters but i wouldn't go on it again either, really bumpy so i think ive out them off rollercoasters, lol.

All in all we had a lovely day :)
