Summer Holiday part 1

Well, that's the first installment of summer holiday over, and a great success it was too.
We played tennis and badminton (several times and my arm still aches), snooker (and boy was I rubbish at that!!) and pool. We swam and played on flumes and river rapids (not real ones...just in the swimming pool), the kids tried paddleboarding for the first time, and we all braved the High Ropes course (I was petrified, the boys loved it).

I am lucky enough to have 2 holidays in the summer, one with the kids and one without (when they go on holiday with their Dad for a week) so I let them chose where we go (within reason of course). I think they made an excellent choice this year.

Happy kids = Happy mum.

Next stop Skye :-)

Ah! Now we all know what you look like.

But who's the woman with you in the bottom photo?

Ruth said... do you know I'm not the one with the curly hair in the previous photo?

Never thought of that or you could be the person yawning next to the breakfast sign.

Nice to see happy people on holidays. It builds good memories. My boys were always much braver than I was, Ruth. Sometimes, they got a kick out my cautious steps. But it was fun to see them go ahead. Great photos. Thanks!
