Taking a toddler to SeaLife

Hi all!

Sometimes it’s nice to share photos of things we’ve been up to recently, and Olivia and I have been up to all sorts of antics this week!

Yesterday we had a very busy but amazing day, and I’m really starting to feel like I’m on top of the world now and actually in control. We’ve gotten into a lovely routine together, and although we both miss Jamie very much, we’re managing okay while he’s serving abroad.

So, what did we get up to yesterday?

We took a day trip to the SeaLife Aquarium in London! We managed a (mostly) successful train journey with only one tantrum – I call that a success – and for the majority of the time walking around the aquarium, Olivia was so happy and excited! There were a few screaming fits on the floor, but minimal and I could tell that she was getting quite tired.

I cannot even describe how amazed she was by the whole aquarium, but this photo does it some justice:

Seeing her so happy made the whole day worthwhile, and, of course, by the end of walking all around the aquarium she was so exhausted that I managed a hassle-free trip to uni to collect my White Book! I may have also enrolled her on the BPTC while I was there… She was asleep after all, so she couldn’t stop me!
The only stressful part of the day was attempting to keep hold of Olivia at the same time as pushing an empty buggy around! SeaLife doesn’t have a buggy park (which I was unaware of), and that meant it was a tad tricky trying to lug around a buggy, a bag and a baby all by myself! We will definitely have to go again when Jamie gets back from Afghanistan with the whole family!

Have you been to SeaLife? What have you been up to this weekend? We’d love to know so leave us a comment or submit your pics to us via email and we will share them on our instagram page!

    that's a shame you had to lug the buggy around, but it looks like she had a lovely time. I too enjoy a visit to the saline centre but without kids #mysundayphoto

    I love an aquarium. We've taken the kids to the big one in Plymouth but have never been to Sealife. It's on our list. #MySundayPhoto

    Yes it would have been much easier not having the buggy but she's still too little to manage such a long day out without it! Thanks for commenting, be sure to share your pictures with us, too!

    I definitely recommend it! Her favourite part was the penguin exhibit, the whole place was so wonderful. Thanks for commenting!

    That's why I love this picture so much! The excitement she must have felt was all over her face but she wouldn't stop long enough for me to capture that! Thanks for commenting

    Haha! I couldn't get her to touch the starfish – I think the water was too cold! I hope to be linking up again soon, thanks for commenting 🙂

    I love Sealife Centres although I've never been to the one in London. They're the kind of outing you can do with toddlers up to teens :o)#MMBC

    Yes absolutely! We've been a couple of times with Olivia's older sister when she was about 5, then again when Olivia was around 14 months old, but this was by far the best time. The sheer fascination she had was just amazing to see! I'm definitely planning on going again soon before she loses interest in fish! Thank you for commenting 🙂

    It's lovely to see little ones so impressed with the world around them. #MMBC

    What a shame they didn't have a buggy park, but fab that she had such a great time. I think my youngest would love it, although my eldest often just gets bored! Thanks so much for linking up with #ourweekendhappy

    I love that she is so amazed by these things! Thanks for commenting

    Definitely something to remember for next time, it would have made it a bit more manageable if there was one but equally I couldn't not take the buggy because of the train journey to and from London! Thanks for commenting 🙂
