Dad is going to have to change the name of this blog to Alasdair's blog so I can tell everyone about my first trip to the UK. I arrived at Grandma and Granddad's on Tuesday. Apparently I was perfectly behaved on the flight over but I wouldn't know because I slept all the way. Travelling is very tiring, I even fell asleep on my new playmat I was so tired.
Grandma has a nice big bath for me to play in. It's a great improvement on the kitchen sink at home, I can swim around in this one. I'm just about getting over the jet lag. I'm sleeping through the night again so I've got more energy in the day to play. This new playmat is so comfy, I hope it fits in the suitcase to take back to Houston. And take note of all my new outfits that I finally get to wear. (Mum wouldn't let me wear them until we got here in case I messed them up)
We went to Bath on Friday for a look at the shops. There was a photo of me outside the Roman Baths but I'm so bundled up in blankets that you can't actually see me so I didn't blog it. We had a nice lunch, all of Mum's food looked really good, can't wait until I get old enough to try some.
And of course I've been into Chepstow a few times. Here's me posing outside the Castle. Maybe next time I visit I'll be awake to see it.
Next week I've got a busy schedule of appointments - cousins, uncles and aunts, Mum's friends - so keep checking back for more updates.
We went up to the Renaissance Festival last weekend, it was a lot of fun. Alasdair was so cute and charming that he attracted lots of attention.
In the end we had to disguise him with some cool shades. The day was really sunny and he found it hilarious every time I put these on him. I'll have to get him a pair of his own so I don't lose mine forever.
I also got to have a go on a bungee trampoline thing. It was great, despite the large amounts of greasy deep fried food consumed earlier in the day.
Friday night a couple of the families on the street hosted their annual Halloween party. Here's a bonus photo of two very scary characters...
