A Year to the Day - posted a little late

This pic was taken on the 22nd April; a significant date in our diaries now as it marks the day Tom was admitted to hospital. This year we took the decision to fill the day with about as much fun as it could take which meant 'Sundown Adventureland'!!

What do you mean you've never heard of Sundown? Why, it's only the premier amusement park for the under fives in the whole of the North Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border region. Imagine if Walt Disney had been born in Retford with a sight less ambition, less access to prime real estate in the sun and a lacksadaisical attitude to fibre-glass care and you might be getting close. Tom, and many toddlers besides, doesn't care. To coin a phrase borrowed from my eloquent neighbour's description of 'In The Night Garden', Sundown is baby crack.

We had a great time and set ourselves a tradition for future years.

Tom is such a handsom little boy! What a wonderful tradition to start - I can only imagine what this theme park is like from your post.

Hope you are all doing well.
