10 on the 10th - Holiday highlights

Didnt quite get round to blogging my 10 on the 10th yesterday but did write it down ready for posting. A few weeks ago we went on holiday to the Isle of Wight. It was the perfect location for a two year old. Lots of things to do and the weather was kind to us.
Here are my 10 holiday highlights:

- Matthew loved the Ferry - or what he called 'the big big boat'. His first time on any kind of boat.
- Lunch in the car in the rain - only one day of very heavy rain - but all British holidays need a picnic in the car
- Flying a kite on Sandown beach. It was just fantastic.
- Rock pooling at Bembridge beach
- Visiting the Seaview Wildlife Park - Matthew loved the area where you walk through with the wallabies and would have spent all day stroking them
- The Owl and Monkey Haven - a lovely project rescuing animals that are no longer wanted or are not fitting in at other zoos
- A walk in the woods - collecting pine cones and finding crickets and ladybirds on tree stumps
- The great escape tunnel - at a farm soft play - Matthew lay on his back and went through the tunnel on a pully system, He loved it!
- Visting the lemurs at Amazon World
- First proper ice cream (he has had ice cream at home or restaurants - but this was Matthew first day out ice cream all of his own - he has had a few more since!)
