Birthday Treat

Ds was eleven last weekend. Gosh, eleven!! How did that happen?! It was also the start of half-term week, so we took advantage of the school holiday to take a quick trip to one of ds's favourite places, Disneyland Paris. It wasn't quite what I had planned, as my mum was unable to come with us, so it was just me and ds. However, we have form on travel together (see, for example, our trip to Bath, or to Hadrian's Wall) but this was the first time we had been abroad by ourselves.

Here's ds on the Eurostar service on the outward trip:

And here he is meeting Rex the dinosaur in the park. Ds declared he was too big to tolerate queueing for a photograph with the characters, but he wasn't averse to a quick snap with a statue. (Although, he was sorely tempted by Jack Skellington. Only the length of the queue put him off!)

We had a lovely time, and especially enjoyed the food. Our menus included Mexican, creole, German and north african. Ds has quite adventurous tastes for someone only just eleven. But he doesn't mind indulging my preference for the tea cups:

Happy birthday, best boy!
