Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.....

This week has been a busy one! 

On Monday and Tuesday we took Deakon and his friend Cory to Legoland. Well! Talk about busy! It was packed on the Monday and we only got on 2 rides but luckily it wasn't so busy on the Tuesday and we ended up getting on most of them....It was good fun!!

After that we drove home (about 2 1/2 hours drive) and on Wednesday morning we drove to Devon!! I was pooped....driving is tiring!!

We met my parents at a lovely cottage in Woodbury, which is near Exmouth. Beautiful place, I loved it there.

We went to the beaches at Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth and Lyme Regis and went shopping in Exeter.


Me and my Mum

And we had a treat at Lyme Regis when the RAF Falcons did a parachute display above the beach and then landed right in front of us!!!

Thanks Mum and Dad for a fabulous holiday.

The Big 10!!...

On Tuesday my little baby Doodlebug will be 10!!!! Where has the time gone!!!

As we will be in Legoland at the time we had a lovely family BBQ today, it was fabulous!

Deak had his present off us early as his Aunt chipped in aswell and it was nice to open it with her there. He got a scooter, called a JD Bug, which is apparently the trendiest scooter you can get ( but I'm not cool enough to understand this!!)

He was very happy and spent the rest of the day in the street, whilst the rest of us enjoyed the grub!!!

My brother in law is the one of the grass pulling the stupid face!!

Happy Birthday, Deakon. Love you loads
