The Things have been wanting to go to Taco Bell for ages. I think they are slightly influenced by the many US Youtubers that they watch and see them going to Taco Bell which is why it has become somewhere they have wanted to visit.
I knew there were some Taco Bell restaurants in the UK but Thing 2 looked and found the nearest one to us was in Southampton, over an hours drive away. I told them it would have to be a specially planned trip out and quickly forgot all about it.
Then at the end of August I found out that they had just opened a restaurant in Woking, a town not far from us and I knew we had to go and pay them a visit. I hadn't told the children that we were going there and luckily Thing 2 hadn't looked recently so she had no clue!
So I told the children we were just popping to the shops in Woking as the younger ones wanted to go on a train ride anyway and it wasn't far to travel. When we get there the children were already saying they were hungry so it was a good thing I had food already planned!
As we passed several other restaurants they kept asking if we could eat in those and I kept putting them off until they saw the Taco Bell sign and their faces lit up. I have never seen someone so excited over a restaurant before.
