A wonderful week

We all had a wonderful week apart from the weather being not as good as we had hoped, but we packed loads in. We played stupid games listened and sang along to their music and laughed so much your tummy muscles hurt, they are now so grown up i can't believe that they are beautiful young ladies. It was great so thanks girls.

Nothing like walking bare foot in the sand

Just about to go body boarding Jess and I
at Mawgan Porth beach

Jess how can you resist that smile !

Captured unawares love this one of Jess

Amy, after not surfing for two years just got
up on the board and surfed like she hadn't
been away!

As you can see the sea was quite rough,

The following day we went to flambards theme park and the sun shone.
There were a few big rides as you can see, but not being to adventurous Amy missed out on going on some as none of us would go on with her. But we had a good day. Apart from the rides there is an indoor part called the blitz , where you can take part in an air raid when you here the sirens going off, very effective the actual floor shook with the noise of the aeroplanes going over, there were different exhibits as well, unfortunately you were not allowed to take photographs.

The log flume where we all got soaked
as you can see it was quite high, great fun!

They all went on the racing cars tony thinking
he was Louis Hamilton!

The concentration was apparent! Amy did really well
considering she had never been in one!

All of us in the hall of mirrors. Quite a scary bunch

This was fun with me screaming at the top of my head
as it went around the corners, much to the girls delight
they found it funny!

These were helicopters that were on a monorail that
you had to pedal, i must admit i was a little scared as you
peddled off the station and looked down into the ground
it seemed like there was nothing between you and
the ground!!

Here you can see the monorail it seemed quite high

On a rainy day Jess receiving a guitar lesson from
grandad, she managed to play part of
"Scarborough Fair" after only a short time,
well done Jess

My beautiful granddaughters relaxing on the couch after dinner

We did finally get the car fixed it was the sensor after all and not the cam shaft thank goodness.
Took the girls back on the thursday took nearly 6 hours, 31/2 hours to the M25 then guess what a traffic jam AGAIN ! hate that road so much with a passion.
Got to stay up for a few days to see other daughter and some friends. Got to see our best friends daughter who is over from florida have not seen her for 10 years, she now has a daughter of her own who has a brilliant floridian accent, very sweet.
And finally you can all have a laugh, i was pestered by daughter sue to go to her combat and kick boxing class " oh we never do things just us two" i could think of better things to do together i thought. This was after a bottle or two on the friday evening and we had to be there by 9.30am next morning, i got up slight hangover but made it, and actually quite enjoyed it, it was certainly a good work out, boxing gloves on i started battering all that built up tensions away great therapy. And if anyone upsets me well i can now give a good kick box! I do have a picture but thats for me to keep !!! maybe one day.
Had a good time the house seemed so quiet when we got home no N Dubs no Lady Ga Ga to sing along to. So thanks to the Breadstick queen (Amy) and the choritzo kid (Jess) we had a fab time

Sounds as though you had a fantastic time J; great stuff - what lucky granddaughters you've got to have a Grandma such as you :D.

Glad the car wasn't as bad as you feared. And OH OH - how I empathise about the M25!!!! Ghastly!

And I've just got back from walking on the beach - but unfortunately I had to keep my shoes on!!

What a great time you had. I wouldn't mind trying those small racing cars, lol. The grandchildren grow up so fast. Your lucky in that you're able to spent time with them.

Bare foot in the sand is the best - as long as there are no little crabs waiting to nip your toes! You certainly had a fun-packed week!

I've been body boarding at Mawgan Porth!!! My gran used to live there, on the hill, over looking the beach. It's one of my favourite beaches, such wonderful sand-dunes. Gosh your post has brought back some memories! And Flambards too! Loved it there! (I grew up in Falmouth)

Your grandchildren are beautiful, absolutely gorgeous!
