NEWS FLASH..Gethin made it into the local Newspaper report about
July 4th.Look under blog roll on right for link to click on.
Tal has been nominated by Welsh local paper to help carry the Olympic torch on part of the leg through Wales.
BACK TO THE BLOG FOR FRIDAY.
Tal had a good session at the hospital.The new Physio Nicole went through all the exercises Tal normally does at home and was impressed at how well he could manage them.He did some good walking with his sticks and then got back on the big bike.This time he managed it much better.
She suggested more exercises to give him a greater challenge over the weekend ,so we will see how he goes.
We all met up after Physio at the zoo to have our first proper visit.We invested in a zoo pass each so we could use all the extras and make the visit worthwhile.We started with the train.
Gethin loves the train.
We saw Giraffes , monkeys, zebras and the morning went by quickly and happily.After lunch we spotted a 3D MOVIE on the adventure of a turtle.Both boys love the Octonauts(children’s TV about under the sea)
so we went in.Somehow we were split up and Claire and Gethin ended up several rows behind us.Glasses on all went well , the turtle hatched and swam to open sea, there were several near escapes but towards the end he was attacked by a shark .In the silence a wail went up behind us,
” Nooooooo …. TURRRRR TULLLLL!”
“Daddeeeee… get turtle!”
We could hear Claire reassuring,
“It’s OK turtle safe”
But the sobbing and wailing got worse even though we had now seen the turtle reach the beach and a new batch of eggs hatch.
When we got out tears ran down his face “Daddeeee Turtle!”
We dashed to the shop, four frantic adults on a mission.
“Do you have a turtle?”
We found a really cute one who is now kept safe by Gethin his name is Sandy.
To cheer him up we went to the children’s section and splash park.We were thrilled at how well Tal joined in.
Everyone got involved.
We then visited the goats.
Tal was really brave.
Finally we took the boys to the Carousel.
Gethin with Daddy.
When we got home the boys had tea and bed….. of course the turtle trauma was not forgotten.Sandy is in bed with Gethin where he is safe.
