Holding my hands up to say sorry, this is super late! Our holiday was back in May, funnily I blogged whilst we were there … Just not about the holiday, ha. Anyway this is long over due but now I have a laptop, we’ve moved house AND the internet is set up I’ve made myself a blog to do list. SO MUCH TO SAY but for now lets talk all things holibobs.
See this little excited face …
She was a dream on the drive down, we decided that I would sit in the back between the girls to encourage naps, hand holding and eating sweets of course! Marceline was only five months old so I was worried about breastfeeding but she managed with one stop, she slept the whole time! Maybe that’s why she’s so excited in this picture? Realistically it was Loralai who wanted to scream from the roof tops that she was on holiday, so much to do, see, she was CRAAZY excited.
We had our first holiday as a family of four in the UK, a caravan site in North Yorkshire. Full of kids activities, disco’s, swimming and more. Now before you ask, yes … Yes we did spend hundreds of pounds on little arcade games to basically get crap toys. Would it even be a British holiday if we didn’t? We pretty much had a trip out every day, we went for a week and I’m pretty glad we did that. We had a day in Filey, Whitby, Peasholm park and Scarborough, it was so lush. We had great weather, which is always the worry for British holidays so I feel we were super lucky.
Each night Loralai and Ricky went to the kids disco, I made it a few times but we tried to keep to Marceline’s routine so I would have caravan chills. We made some friends who actually live really close to us so Loralai had a holiday play mate, lush. We eat so much ice cream, had fish and chips, visited the beach and honestly enjoyed each others company. I am so glad I said to Ricky when I was pregnant to book a little get a way for us, it really made a highlight for my maternity leave.
I did think it would be hard taking the girls away but it wasn’t, Marceline did have a few unsettled nights and Loralai got upset a few times (and didn’t want to come home) but aside to that it was really great, a great first holiday. I would love to take the girls abroad, Loralai has been to France but I want the four of us to have a week or two somewhere sunny with a beautiful beach and great pool! I turn 30 next year so I think maybe the year after that can be our aim.
So I am about to spam you with a bunch of family holiday snaps, I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t …
It wouldn’t be a holiday if I didn’t twin the girls up!
A spot of toy bingo, haha.
Loralai auditioned for the show, she was singing her little heart out, she danced away and wasn’t phased at all. My little super star!
Still shocked to this day that Marceline managed some naps during the disco’s, she wakes at the littlest sounds and the disco was crazy loud! Baffled, kids ey?
We promised Loralai the worlds biggest ice cream for being in the show, little did we know she would actually find one! She didn’t finish it, obviously.
We had mini date nights while the girls slept, pizza – ALWAYS.
Sleepy, boobie feeds. Love this snap.
Love beach days, me and Loralai ran in the sea and it was freezing!!
When you try and get a family selfie …
We eventually managed one!
We went on a pirate ship in Whitby, Loralai went on a second time with Ricky.
To round it up, we made some great memories, I had a lot of proud Mam moments, Marceline went swimming for the first time, Loralai owned the dance floor every night and we had crazy amounts of giggles (I fell off a slide) and its just got me so excited for our next adventure, whenever that maybe.
