It’s not often you can say it’s been a lovely sunny bank holiday, thankfully it has been.
Our weekend started badly with the car breaking down for the 3rd time in a week, thankfully a 7am text to our mechanic saw him on our doorstep an hour and a half later to pick it up and returned it at 11 am mended free of charge – don’t ask me what was wrong with it I was just so pleased it was that I forgot to ask!
Dropping the dog off to the in-laws we were then Cornwall bound, the kids were both SO well behaved, both sleeping for a few hours, we stopped for lunch and a run around and arrived 6.5 hours later at the Premier Inn in Newquay. Quickly unpacking we then headed to the Brewers Fayre next door so Emmy could unwind and burn off some energy at the playground – quickly making friends with another girl they both did what kids do best and had fun.
We went and had some dinner around 9.30pm and heading back to our room with 2 worn out children. I can’t praise the staff at the Brewers Fayre highly enough, warm friendly and amazing with the children, we would happily go back again if staying in Cornwall and the Premier Inn was comfortable and very reasonably priced.
After breakfast we got ready and headed to the wedding of our very good friend – Emmy’s Godmother – Emma.
We had an amazing time, the wedding was fabulous and Emma looked fantastic. Emmy thought she was a princess and kept wanting to cuddle Emma – which was so cute, Emmy also thought she was a princess and kept twirling around and around.
Emmy was all partied out by 7pm and had a few hours nap then was ready to party all over again. The wedding reception was at The California Hotel which has a bowling alley attached – as you can imagine fun was had by all.
We got back to the hotel around midnight all completely worn out. Thank you Mr & Mrs Lester!
On Sunday after breakfast we headed off to spend some time at Fistral beach, Harry’s first trip to the beach. Emmy collected shells, played in the sand and had a great time.
We then finished off our holiday with a trip to Coombe Mill. It was Greek Easter and Fiona kindly allowed us to join her, her family and guests for a perfect afternoon of perfect food and drink as well as a chance to potter around the farm. In case you missed it – we went to Coombe Mill when Emmy was 18 months taking Paul’s parents too, it was amazing. You can read all about it here.
Emmy had an amazing time and once again so did we. It really is a wonderful place, full of fun and so much to do for everyone. Thank you Fiona and Nick.
Our bank holiday was topped off by a day spent back home at our local park, Harry enjoyed the swings and a sleep on the grass while Emmy raced around with a new friend.
This is what Summer is all about – friends new and old all having fun and the children having a great time.
As we have spent SO much time outside this weekend it is only fitting I link this post to Country Kids over on the Coombe Mill Blog.
