Sunny weekend away

A few weeks ago when we had our good news about MissyMoo2 (3), we decided to celebrate by booking a family weekend away. Just the five of us, no stressing, some time away to enjoy each other's company. Last weekend, the time had come!

We figured we could have gone away for two nights, stayed in a mediocre room in which the five of us would be tripping over one another, or we could stay for one night and splash out.

Splash out, we did.

This was the view from our hotel room:

The hotel was fantastic. There was heaps of room for everyone, a gorgeous view, we got early check-in and late check-out. Hey, even the bathroom scales were flattering!

It was a glorious, warm winter's day - it really didn't feel like winter at all. We hung out at the beach. MissyMoo3 (10 months) ate some sand, as you do.

Hubby found me a (sort of) heart-shaped shell.

We built sandcastles.

Then back to the room for a rest and a complimentary bottle of bubbly, thank you very much!

Dinner was a bit of a let-down - well, the service was anyway. Just as well the kids were given a colouring in pack - we were there for long enough. But the food was delicious and it was nice to eat out.

The next morning greeted us with a glorious sunrise.

After breakfast, it was back to the beach. MissyMoo1 (5) wrote everyone's names on the sand, except mine, as she didn't know how to spell it. So I told her each letter and she wrote my name in the sand too :-)

It was a beautiful weekend.
