They made us go to Ikea! But we got Ice-Cream

I feel sorry forย our poor kids having to be dragged to Ikea! NOT hehe… They always make out like there hate it, but yet once we get there all there do is whizz round on chairs, measure things with a fantastic paper ruler, write things down what they would like for their bedroom and try to walk up the escalator the wrong way!… and then there get bribed with a Ice-Cream afterwards. These kids are so hard done too lol

  • Ashton Loved that Red egg looking chair thing and was giving a lovely spin!!!
  • I think they both liked the Corner Sofa and so do I to be honest!, loving the grey and purple
  • Ooooo crafting storage, **Heaven** Now I just need to build a shed/building out the back to put it in!
  • Layla got bribed with a Teddy Panda :/ way too young for Ice-Cream! haha

and…. this is what we bought!!! A HOLย Storage Table…ย Totally not the most exciting thingย EVER!, but it’s practical and we need something to go down the side of the settee to put all of laylas toys in when shes not playing with them.

Even thought we didn’t exactly go overboard at Ikea, We did have Fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    We love IKEA ๐Ÿ™‚ Sadly, the Boston one is over an hour away, but we used to go in Edinburgh all the time and let the kids have a run around and then treat them to a hot dog or an ice cream! #LetKidsBeKids

    We went to IKEA for the first time in ages and it was really quite good! They gave a play area outside and both children ate all their food-which is fantastic ๐Ÿ™‚ My main issue is I always come away with more stuff than I planned ๐Ÿ™‚ stopping by from #pocolo

      Oh congrat’s on your 1st ikea trip :)… The 1st time we went, we were there for 5 hours! hehe… we usually end up with a whole heap of other things, the bargain basement section, is my downfall, sadly there wasn’t much there this time ๐Ÿ™‚ hehe

    Love ikea. Some friends and I used to set up a huge game of hide and seek in ikea until a staff member was showing off a wardrobe and found the smallest of our group hidden in the drawer at the bottom and we got kicked out!

    My boys think Ikea is a gigantic playground ๐Ÿ™‚ They love running around there trying everything and making a big mess… We used to live really close to an Ikea and every time the weather got bad we’ll go there just so the kids have somewhere to run around ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Looks like you all had fun!
