Last month the boys were invited to participate in a competition where they got to review Ice Age 4:Continental Drift. We videoed the boys doing their review and uploaded it up onto YouTube, the winner who was picked by a panel of judges would win a chance to be the Official Junior ODEON reviewer for the film.
The boys video was not picked as the overall winner but they was one of the five runners up and won an Ice Age 4 goody bag aswell as an All inclusive trip to Bristol where they get to take a trip onto a pirate ship and even have the chance to steer the boat.
Here are the boys with some of the goodies that they have won
So Jak, Joseph and myself would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all who viewed there video and everyone that suported them by tweeting and sharing their post on twitter and facebook.
A massive congratulations to the winner Evan from www.lemonscake.blogspot.co.uk, you can see his official review for ODEON here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psXfkrLnbuA&feature=youtube_gdata_player
We picked the boys up from school and headed towards Chelmsford to Lathcoats Farm where we was going to meet up with our friends and their children. we was doing our yearly visit to the farm to do our strawberry picking, It is something we have done for the past 4 years and we always do it on the same day. It started of as a birthday surprise for me from Daddy and the boys as i love strawberries and always talk about going strawberry picking with my family as a child, which i have fond memories of doing. I remember sneakily eating the strawberries by pretending to cough but instead placing a nice juicy strawberry in my mouth, I can remember the taste and how i thought i was going to caught doing it. I’m sure the owners of the field knew what i was doing as i was a dead give away with all the strawberry juice down my top and smeared all over my face lol.
Anyway now we do as it as a family and always on the same day 13th July, rain or shine we will be there. The children love to run around and pick their own, they enjoy being with their friends and take pleasure in eating all their strawberries that they have picked with their own little fingers. This year the field was very muddy so we wore our wellies and donned our rain coats and spent half an hour walking round the fields searching for nice big juicy strawberries and I am quite sure that the odd one may have fell into the boys mouths too (sshh dont tell anyone!) Could you imagine being the height of the boys and every way you turn all you can see is strawberries? Joseph was just the right height that he could see all of the fruit just hanging down.
The farm also has donkeys, rabbits and chickens to look at, Jak was playing on the picnic fields with a little red ball and the chickens wanted to play football with him, they chased him around and Joseph got all upset because he thought they were going to hurt his big brother, bless him! Oliver just wanted to grab them, im not sure what he thought they were but he was quite taken with them.
We all had lots of fun and i now have a fridge full of redcurrants and strawberries, i think i may be making some jam with some of them 🙂

Today was the boys Curriculum Day in school, the school has been celebrating it’s 80 Years of being open this year so each year group had a decade as a topic to research on. Jaks year was 1950’s and Joseph was 1940’s.
The boys classes put on shows for the parents to watch and we got to see some of their work that they have done throughout the term.
Daddy took us all up to the big city of smoke, London on Saturday evening. We picked up Jak after he finished his drama lessons and we drove up to London to have a look at the Europe’s tallest building, The Shard. The building has an amazing 72 floors and is the home to office blocks, restaurants, residents, the Shangri-La Hotel and viewing platforms. Standing 309.6 metres (1,016 ft) high it is completely clad in glass made to look like a shard of glass.
The building is absolutely huge and can be seen from miles and miles away, it towers over any other building in London. The boys thought it was amazing and really enjoyed standing at the bottom of the building on the ground and looking up at it.
We also popped down to the river Thames to see the olympic rings that are hanging at the top of the Tower Bridge, we took a few photographs, enjoyed the views then on our way back to the car we noticed a little water feature that was running along the floor, which kind of looked like a mini river, Joseph enjoyed jumping over it shouting “I’m leaping over the Thames”. We popped into a Tesco Metro and bought a few items of food that we could have a late picnic with and drove down to the London Eye and found a spot on the grass just by the side of the new wooden park that has been built there recently. After eating the boys had some fun in the park and then we all had a little stroll down the southbank watching all of the street performances.
It was a lovely enjoyable evening and the boys had lots of fun, they even fell asleep in the car on the way home. We noticed we was driving in the olympic lane so thank god it’s not in place just yet.

Its my turn to run the Trendy Toddler Linky again today and next week it shall be running over on medicatedfollowers blog. We have another few weeks and Maria shall be back hosting her fab linky on her blog verybusymamablog.
We have been very busy the past week so i haven’t taken many photographs of the boys in their trendy clothes but i did go shopping yesterday, so i think i shall share with you what i bought for the boys. I visited Brent Cross Shopping centre yesterday and i could’ve almost bankrupted us with all the sales that were on but i was a very good girl and only bought a few items from my favourite shop H&M.
These shirts are gorgeous pastel colours and both in shades of pink, they are cotton too which is great for the hot summer days (IF we ever get any!) they are lovely and lightweight AND they were only £5.99 each , Bargain! I got one each for the two eldest boys. I know they are going to love these shirts and they are not afraid to wear pink in fact Jak is always begging me to buy him more colourful clothes. the shirts will look fab with a pair of denim shorts for the daytime but can also be smartened up for the evening by teaming them with a smart pair of chinos and whats great is the shirts will match any other colour.
Next i bought was a couple os soft cotton shorts for Joseph, they were in the sale and only cost me £3 each. They are lovely bright blue and red and are knee length, very comfortable and cool.
I couldn’t leave little Oliver out so i bought him a new hat, It’s brown and blue check, he has a similar one in blue and red. I know my boys dont need any more hats but i adore them in them and they look so cute. The hat was £2.99. Do you know what? I counted through the amount of hats that Olver has and i found about 15, gosh thats a lot for a 11 month old baby isn’t it! I think i may have a hat disorder hhhmmm!
Oliver is wearing his new hat which is teamed up with his new t-shirt from Tesco which says ‘Little Man’ on it (thats whats we call him) and his trousers are also from clothing at Tesco. I do beleive that the whole oufit may have cost me less than £10.
