Holiday Part II

We finally arrived at Sea Houses for a little holiday with the Inlaws. (The cliff hanger from the last post suggested some exciting event that took place during the journey. In normal TV soaps the cliff hanger never turns out to be as exciting as it promised. Well this is no exception, the journey actually turned out to be pretty uneventful with everyone but the driver sleeping through most of it) But Sea Houses, now that was exciting...

It was a such beautiful place and we were in a house overlooking the harbour. Right here... 
That first evening every window provided me with a different stunning view to capture. Which I did by painfully leaning out of each window...


And thanks to my little lovelies forcing me out of bed at 6am, I could watch the sun rise over the sea. Not a bad way to wake up I can tell you...


Isaac greeting the day on the balcony. I just adore his bed head...


 The first outing of the holiday had to be, HAD TO BE going to the beach...



The water was freezing but daddy made it fun...
 But I added some wellies pretty quickly. Seriously freezing...

Proof that I really do have no junk in my trunk.
It's okay I've come to terms with it, I can laugh about it...Mostly.
Swinging with Mummy and Grandma. (Isn't his hat just ridiculously too big for him?)
Isaac very wisely staying out of the ice water for the most part and focused his attention on the mechanics of castle building. Which he soon discovered didn't go well with the dry sand.

Daddy help me! (with a fishing net obviously)
Hubby keeps complaining about me taking photos of the back of his head (as in bold patch). But Lucas looks so cute it had to be done.
Is there anything better than feet in the sand?
Well according to Isaac getting a free ride and eating ice cream might be even better...

As you can tell it was a great day all round. To finish it off in the perfect way Hubby and me went for a walk along the sea front to watch the sunset that evening.



And what a sunset it was. 


And not only that, look at the freaking Moon!!! What the..?

Days like these always make me wish I lived near the sea...

More to show you tomorrow.

(Cue cliff hanger)

You'll never guess what happened after that full moon...

Holiday Part 1

Still loving spring...


















I have been itching to write for days now, really itching but moving back in our 'totally awesome but not quite finished newly renovated house' has taken up all my time. Plus there is the small issue of the fact that while on holiday I took more photos that is humanly possible. Seriously, I reached a new level of obsessive photo taking. At one point my hubby said 'Can you believe we get to go to an island on a boat and maybe see some Puffins?' To which I replied 'Do you think I'll be able to get a picture? Because it feels like it didn't really happen unless I get a picture.' At which point hubby looks at me squarely and says 'and put on your blog...' 'Exactly!' I smiled.

I haven't finished sorting through these gazillion trillion million photos (is that a possible number? You know me and maths...) so I'll do it in parts to really keep you in suspense. Hmm maybe I should end each post on a cliff hanger to keep you coming back for more lol

So lets get started shall we? Before setting of for Sea houses with the inlaws (a small harbour village by the sea up North) we stayed at their house for a couple of days. We relaxed, ate large amounts of Grandma's delicious food and played with the kiddies...

Lately everywhere we go so does hubby's rugby ball. Here we have hubby showing his amazing ability to hold the ball mid air with nothing but the power of his mind...


At the playground with Grandma...

 The delights of swings...

Also everywhere we go, so does Lucas's little tongue...


Then Grandpa took us on a day out to Lincoln...

Where we met some strange town folk...

 Got the boys names written in some sand art...
 Visited a gigantic and honestly quite beautiful Cathedral...

 Um there is some freaky looking guys up there...
 This dude cracked me up with his sitting style...









The next morning, just as we were about to get on our way to Sea Houses I noticed the sunlight on the morning dew making me shout 'wait! I gotta get a photo!' Much to the huffs and puffs of everyone else...

 I think it was worth it...
Talk about suspense we haven't even left for Sea Houses yet! You'll never guess what happened on the journey... (the as promised cliff hanger)
