Show Time

The other weekend we took Steven to Paultons Park, as we had heard that Justin Fletcher would be doing a show there. For those that don't know who Justin is, he is the man behind the show like 'Something Special' and Gigglebiz, OK if you've not got young children or a special child you will still be none the wiser, lol...

As it had been a busy week for Steven, we decided to take him in his wheelchair and so pleased we did as it was packed. Mostly with little ones which means both Steven and the little ones wouldn't have had a chance if Steven was walking, as he doesn't react quick enough. To be honest, we found it hard work with pushing the wheelchair, there were kids running around everywhere.

While we were waiting for show time, we had a quick ride on the train, which Steven loved as usual.


Then it was show time,

Steven and Clive went to a special area for the disabled, but Steven had trouble seeing as the young lad in front was a standing, so Clive ended up getting Steven out his wheelchair to so he could see better. He seems to like it, in fact at times he actually interacted with the clapping and singing, then he spotted me in the crowd, lol...


Then Clive and Steven had a go on the swing boats.


and the teacup ride.


and the balloon ride.


Then they sat on this ride...


and went up, up, up...


and down, down, down, lol...



I don't know if you noticed, but I had my feet firmly on the ground most of the time, lol... Well someone had to take the photo's to scrap...

It was a good few hours, but I'm not in any hurry to return, especially at the weekend, as it was just too busy for my liking, lol... But Steven's face was a picture, especially when Justin sang the 'hallo' song from Something Special, it made all the hard work of walking amongst hundreds of kids running around worth it...

yes, that face made it all worth while...

Steven is much braver than me, don't think I would like that up-and-down ride at all.
Sounds like a good (if busy) day out.
I didn't know who that bloke was but my mum probably does, she likes watching some of the kids programs, her current fave is Shawn the Sheep (she is 73).
