Thursday….. best day ever!

OK I admitted yesterday I am prone to exaggeration but it was pretty damn good!!!
Jon and Claire were up early to take Tal to the new appt at 8-00 am for Physio.This meant Gran, Grandad and Gethin had a lie-in and didn’t stir till 8-15am so a great start.
Tal was full of energy and did really well.
He was challenged to use his walker and step up and down over an obstacle.

He then had to do some squats showing how hard he could push against Mike.

He was then tested on a special machine to see how well he could kick out.

Mike impressed with Tal's kicking results


The session went really well so it was decided Tal deserved a treat.
Many people have recommended THE MAGIC HOUSE, see http://www.magichouse.org including Uncle Hefin.
This house was owned around 1900 by wealthy stockbrokers from St Louis.

Ahouse with History


It was donated by their family for a children’s museum.

It is now very much a hands on science and imagination stimulation centre for kids. Now there will be lots of photos to show what a great time we had.Tal spent much of the day on his feet so extra work out without him realizing it.

There was so much to do they really didn’t know which way to go next and we had trouble keeping up.The grown ups had fun too.

There were lots of chances to make music.

There were lots of rooms for imaginary play.

Tals favourite was driving the ambulance and playing in the hospital.The doctors coat said St Louis Children’s Hospital which was really cute.

Fixing the car...he even changed the wheels


Just look at Doctor TAL and his assistant Doctor Gethin.

Gethin’s favourite games involved balls and water.

So as you can see we had a great time and will probably go back next week as there are rooms we didn’t get into and didn’t get to the outdoor areas at all.For those with access to our Flickr accounts there are even more photos there.It was so nice to see the boys enjoying themselves so much.
But maybe I should change the title to the BEST DAY EVER….SO FAR, after all tomorrow is another day.
