My little man turned 6 last week. How did this happen? It only seems like yesterday that I wrote this post about him turning two! This year we gave him a Bow and Arrow as he has become a real fan of archery since Grandad has been teaching him.
We decided to have his party at Pennywell Farm. After hosting many parties at home I kind of feel like I’ve got ‘birthday party burn out’ so decided to take the easy option! We planned a full day out and packed a picnic lunch, a birthday tea was provided as part of the party package.
When we arrived Thomas was given a lovely Birthday rosette which meant that everybody at Pennywell knew it was his birthday. All the staff that we met throughout the day made a huge fuss of him and he was made to feel so special.
The highlight of the day was a show by ‘Nutty Noah‘. As we knew he was going to be at Pennywell, this was another reason why we had the party here. We had seen his act before and it is just so funny! If you are looking for an entertainer for your child’s party I would highly recommend him. Don’t expect any educational slant on this act though…. it is purely designed around what children want and he had them all roaring with laughter! Expect lots of jokes about ‘pants’ and ‘wee’ and lots of silliness… just perfect for boys of Thomas’ age! Don’t worry, there are a few hidden jokes for mums and dads in there too! Here’s a video of Thomas joining Noah on the stage.

A big thank you to Thomas’ special friends who joined him on the day, and to my mum who helped us to keep track of all six children throughout the day. Luckily we came home with the correct number which is always a bonus!
