We woke up from a cosy night's sleep with the boy pretty much on top of me and the girl on the floor. We breakfasted on bagels and Nutella and the camping classic of mini boxes of cereal. Toilets survived and a quick tent style wash and we were ready to go. It was a bit of a dull start weather wise but that didn't dampen our spirits as we filled the day from 09:00 to 00:00.
The Kid's Garden was explored from top to bottom with something to do for all five children in the gang. We stalked the crowd from the amazing Camera Obscura and made hoops big and small. Lego always catches the attention of the boy and half an hour was spent chilling in the Lego Experience listening to the familiar sound of hands rummaging through bricks. A puppet show for all ages - Johnny Vegas eating the cat was funnier than it sounds. Then the boy's favourite activity of attacking the blob - after this pic was snapped they proudly "took him down".
In the afternoon we explored the Magic Meadow with more people watching from the top of Oberon's Observatory. The green space in the meadow was used for a good hour of hoop tossing as the kiddies clearly hadn't burnt enough of their energy yet.
Following a rather yummy tea at Pieminister - £16 got us Freeranger Chicken pie, mash and gravy, Heidi pie, mash and onions and Sausage Roll and mash - it was off to the Castle Stage for an evening of fantastic music from Johnny Marr and James. The children chilled in their newly acquired onesies whilst the grown ups enjoyed some amazing music. I loved the set from James which took me back to my teenage days - such an awesome band and a great way to round off the first full day.
