Saturday: We made our way to Colyton Station as Peppa Pig was paying a visit! The girls were very excited, but once there, they fell asleep! Woke up and Yes just wasn’t sure on the “big Peppa Pig” “I just want to see the small Peppa Pig” she kept saying. Bless her, she really thought Peppa was going to be her height, the huge version that was greeting everyone just didn’t have her convinced. Hal went to say hello, but with her legs clinging around my waist, And my sweet little Yve’s then waved Peppa goodbye, and was so pleased with herself and said she was very brave to wave at Peppa! She really was.
It’s really lovely to see my Nan make a lovely happy life for herself down here. We visited her at the place she does voluntary work for, you could tell she was chuffed to show her great-grandchildren off to her colleagues. Lovely to see her smile with pride. Another day at the beach, delicious ice creams, fish and chips (the best I’ve ever tasted, and they always taste better by the sea!) we spent some really lovely quality time together, and it was great that my brother and sister joined our holiday, it was nice for them to spend time with their nieces and nephew.
We were so fortunate to have such glorious weather for the most of the weekend, throughout the whole weekend is was brilliant to spend time together laughing and joking, mucking about in the caravan & just enjoying the little moments. The girls really enjoyed having everyone’s attention, piggy backs, building sandcastles, just being by the sea. I love visiting Seaton, it takes me back to my childhood when My Dad, Nan, Brother & I would visit the Haven campsite (which is now a tescos) and it just takes me back, and I love that feeling even though it is bittersweet… bitter because I can’t believe how fast the years have gone, but sweet as its an amazing thing that I am now taking my own children to where I use to spend my childhood. Not only that, it’s lovely to see my Nan so happy with her new life here.
Towards the end of the weekend, we had some severe rain, and it hit us even more so once we returned home! (typical!) But this didn’t put a downer on the mood, we had a terrific time and I can’t wait to go and visit my lovely Nan again very soon.
Here’s some of my favourite images (of the 400 i took!) I have also printed a photobook of all of them too…
