A MAD Day Out to Legoland Windsor
|The MAD Blog Award finalists and their families|
New faces and some seen before.
It was a chance to meet before the big night
And thank our families for their support.
|Hayley, Natty and Mia from Downs Side Up|
and spotting someone in reality.
I missed many, for which I kick myself.
I promise to learn names, blogs and Twitter handles.
New friendships were forged.
Puppy love blossomed.
Children were nervously chased
as conversations remained half finished.
|Natty the donghnut monster|
Adrenaline made us squeal.
Boundaries were pushed
New experiences devoured.
We jumped queues with our gold status
collected badges along the way
our lanyards the souvenir
of a fabulous day..
Reluctance to end each ride
Drops of rain, plastic ponchos
Tears at the 4D film
We negotiated our lows
Allowing safe risk, letting go
Takes practice for me.
Feelin sick with each twist and turn
We watched Natty and sis devour the day with gusto.
Soon climbing wasn't enough
Natty wanted the exciting stuff!
My phobia of rollerscoasters
had to be concealed.
(As you can see I hid it perfectly!)
|The photo finish, the image that speaks for itself|
So we ended on a high!
The kids got me on a roller coaster
all the while protesting that I
Home we came,
Natty snored all the way
and woke this morning chattering
"Mummy scream, Mia scream, Natty scream, Daddy scream."
Thank you MAD Blog Awards and Legland Windsor for your hospitality.
