The day was finally here and boy was it an early start! Mummy and daddy had their alarm set for 0545am!
We got the boys up at 0615am and got them dressed. We had layed out all the boys clothes the night before on the sofa. Both boys had breakfast which was great as we were planning on feeding them on the coach.
We had a taxi booked for 0715 to take us into town as our national holidays coach went from Bewick Street, across the road from Newcastle Central Station and we did not want to chance public transport early in the morning!
Mummy and daddy had prepared for the trip by downloading lots of programmes and films onto our tablets for the boys to watch.
Our coach left at 0750am. We had to swap coaches at Wetherby, The boys were so good on the first coach, in fact Freddie slept for a good chunk of the time! We had plenty for them to do and keep them occupied plus they each had a new toy Teletubby! We left Wetherby at ten to eleven. Freddie started to lose his patients a bit, but lucky when that happened, we were close to the park!
We arrived at the park just after 1pm. James was so excited! After getting the pram we headed straight into CBeebies Land!
The first ride we went on was the Go Jetters Vroomster. We had a short wait but James loved it! We then did the Octonauts ride with quite a long wait but again James loved it.
After the Octonauts it was time for lunch! Sandwiches, tea and coffee for mummy and daddy. Jacket potatoes, beans and fruit for the boys!
Then it was Postman Pat which we could all go on! Freddie absolutely adored this ride! He sat on the seat hitting the horn! We got a great photo on this ride! We then went into Nina's science lab which James was running round trying everything!
We then went into the photo studio n got a photo with Go Jetters!
We were back on the coach to the hotel just after 5 but left coach park at half 5. Our hotel was about an hour away from the park and Freddie slept the whole way!
We got into our hotel room at 7pm, then went down for our meal which was lovely. Both boys were asleep by half nine!
Day two was another early start with having breakfast at just after 7am!
We left the hotel at 9am and got to park at 10am for opening! James wanted to go on the Octonauts first, so daddy took him on that! Then they went on the Go Jetters ride!
We then did the In The Night Garden boat ride. Freddie absolutely loved this one! His face lit up when he saw Iggle Piggle!
We then left Cbeebies land and went over to Mutiny Bay to go to Sharkbait Reef, both boys absolutely loved this! James was very excited to find Nemo and Dory!
We then got a cable car up to cloud cuckoo land. We had lunch at the burger kitchen which was lovely and hot! Both the boys loved their food! Mummy and James then went on a carousel!
Jame did the driving school and got his driving license! While daddy and James queued up, mummy went and changed Freddie's bum, I put the snoozeshade over the pram to see if Freddie would get some sleep which he did - two hours!
After the driving we went back down to the cable cars and went back down to Tower Street and had a look in the shop before heading back into CBeebies Land to go into the Something Special Sensory Garden. We then went into the shop where James got a grandmaster glitch toy and Freddie an Iggle Piggle!
We then went out into Tower street to let James have a run on the grass while mummy nipped into the shop and bought keyrings and a pen.
Freddie woke up and we went into a coffee shop. We needed a chill out before we did toilets and bum change before getting back on the coach.
The coach left just after 4pm. After a half hour break at Wetherby services we finally got into Newcastle just before 10pm!
It was a brilliant couple of days but a very long trip home! Freddie did lose his patients a few times and need out of his seat for cuddles, but James was brilliant!
We would love to go back, but maybe try a different way of getting there and back!
