A brilliant time at #Blogontoys - 6 reasons you should go.

It is almost 5 years since I started this blog and four and a half years since I went to my first blogger conference where I had a good time and came away with lots of ideas, information, a few new friends and contacts, it was high time I went along to another.

Having seen Blog On conferences popping up in my social feeds twice a year and hearing about what a great time everyone was having, how much they were learning and the lovely brands they were meeting not to mention the Christmas party, Blog On toy awards and the infamous Blog On goody bags I decided I wanted to go.

Play Dirt, Bugs and a Monster Truck Rally- A three year olds dream

I have said before that Little 3 has a love of vehicles, it doesn't really matter what but trains, trucks and fire engines feature particularly highly on his lists when he reels off his favourite toys, not only that but Little 3 loves tactile and messy play and adores helping in the garden and bug spotting too so imagine my delight when he was sent the Play Dirt Monster Truck Rally recently.

Snow much fun with Floof - reusable indoor snow

Now that the weather has changed and it is getting a bit chillier out Little 3 has begun to ask almost on a daily basis if it is Winter yet and seems more than a little disappointed each morning when I draw back his bedroom curtains and tell him that, 'No, it has not snowed overnight yet'.

The Little Ones try out the 'Read with Phonics' app

Lately Little 3 has been showing an interest in letters and letter sounds or Phonics as they are known, he has been asking what letters are called and what sound they make, at just 3 and a half he attends pre-school but isn't yet in school so when we were asked to review the 'Read with Phonics' app I thought it might be a good introduction for him and a bit of fun too.

The whole family get stuck in with Kinetic Sand- Beach kingdom

I am sure you will have heard of Kinetic Sand, the moldable, mess free building compound that you just can't help but touch. It is in the way you can squash it together to form structures which will stand for ages and then at the same time it can simply suddenly dissolve again sliding through your fingers in a liquid sort of manner leaving no residue.

A new found freedom for Little 3

This summer was one of growth and changes, all three Little Ones shot up especially Little 2 and Little 3 found new independence and a world of freedom. It is amazing what a difference can happen to children in just 6 weeks and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly they change and grow even from one week to the next.

Strawberry picking with friends

So the strawberry picking season is coming to an end and I almost forgot to write about the fun afternoon we had strawberry picking with friends back at the beginning of the holidays.

A big fat box of photo memories from Cheerz

When I think about all the photos I take of my family, the days out, holidays, milestones, birthdays and all the other things inbetween it makes me wonder how many photos are stored on my phone, my camera and my computer. There must be thousands of them and how many do I actually print out, not many to be honest.
