Dexter loves his football, and for his birthday he really wanted us to take him to Manchester City Football Stadium, so we did.
We met up with his Granny & Grandad who were on the last leg of their visit to us from France (they were meeting up with my husband's extended family of uncles and cousins, so we met up with them too).
Dexter (like many boys) dreams of being a professional football player (in addition to being a photographer, travel writer, author, artist....) and going round the stadium I can see why as I even wanted to be signed up. The plans they have for the future of their club and the development of future talent was impressive. I could see my little blonde bombshells mind ticking!
We even got to see the changing and training facilities... as well as their loo's!
Dexter was so excited - ha, ha, ha
And after we went for cakes in Manchester Selfridges store......
...we went back to Andrew's cousin Neil's house where we were staying and Dexter put on his Goalkeeper strip (he actually plays in midfield and striking positions but wanted the green strip because it is so nice) which was actually quite fitting having met Manchester City's actual Goalkeeper who played professionally for them in the 1980's :)
