summer hols so far and two trips done!

2 weeks in to our summer holiday travelling and we have been very busy!

Centre parks break

We arrived back in the uk a couple of weeks ago and went straight off to centre parks to celebrate my father in laws birthday. We had a fab time! It's such a great place to go with family as there is something to do for everyone! As always, William enjoyed his time with grandma and grandad! He is getting quietly spoilt. 

We visited the longleat centre parks, and two years on from our last visit, William was able to take in a bit more and run around the gorgeous forest! We had a great cabin that was right near the plaza and swimming pool, but also backed onto a pond in he pine forest so we got daily visits from ducks and their ducklings! 

Sun, sea and San in Spain

After that, we jetted off on another plane, this time bound for Spain! The three of us went with my brother and his wife and had a great week there. It was so nice to just relax, lie in the sunshine, splash about in the pool... We could have easily stayed much longer. 

We had some really tasty meals, including proper Spanish paela, steaks, BBQ sea bass, confit of duck... Just gorgeous food! The weather was amazing, pretty hot and in the 30oc s but we are kinda used to that!

Meanwhile, back in the uk....

We are now staying back with my in laws in south devon for a few weeks so it will be full of playing, relaxing, eating, crafting etc. all good to me! My mother in law Linda and I have been crafting his afternoon already, and have made two dozen cards using the sewing machine and some lovely papers! I will post some pics of them soon! I have also started a small crochet blanket for a friend who is having a baby in November. We will see them in a few weeks so it needs to be ready by then!
