Summer Holidays: Rainy day pottery painting

For the past couple of summers the kids have painted a plate at the local pottery painting cafe, so a rainy day meant it was the 2013 pottery plate painting day..

Kitty got slightly annoyed after painting her plate purple over and over but the older kids had a great time. Just have to wait a week for glazing to see the end product.

Summer holidays: Fireworks at the beach

We waited up for the first fireworks at the beach of the season (10 O’Clock being very late for me!). After many attempts we managed to light a BBQ asnd have hot dogs while the kids scooted before the big bangs. Followed by sparklers of course. After being excited all day Kitty made it until 10 O’clock then sat in her pushchair and fell asleep during the display!

P.S. Turned out we were rubbish at taking photos of fireworks!

Summer holidays: The circus is in town

My dad  took us for an evening at the circus…The kids was so excited to see the acts, the finale of which included two men doing the wheel of death (like two giant hamster wheels) which can be best described as harrowing to watch. I’m not sure if it was for dramatic effect but the one who walked on the outside of the wheel kept tripping over and jumping to hold on, especially when blindfolded!!! And there were no safety nets or harnesses. not sure it was that great for my blood pressure.
