The pictures tell the story.....weve been having some family time in South Wales. We stayed with Clare and hubby Ben, Poppy their young border collie was delighted to see Ben the dog and greeted him with licks to his face. Eric and I got jumped on....she calmed down eventually.
On Wednesday we went for a meal for Gwen's 7th birthday and the children enjoyed the Wacky Warehouse. Scarlett had fun with the slide and the balls in the toddler soft play. Gwen played in the section for older children with some of her friends. We had food before they played, Scarlett fancied a few of her mum's chips to go with her pasta and cheese. The grown ups had a good catch up. Clare popped In with hubby Ben after work. One of Gwen's presents was some dressing up clothes......she loved the Egyptian princess.
On Thursday we took on the grandparent role and had a day out with Gwen as mum was working. We had a lovely time in Porthcawl in sunshine. Gwen had a good time and Ben the dog was very good and quite happy as long as he could see me. Gwen and grandad did the rock pools, while Ben and I stayed off the rocks. Luckily dog's are banned from May to September on this beach......good job it's April. Before we came away we went to the fair. I don't really like fairs but went on a ride with Gwen as I didn't want to let her go on her own, as it was quite speedy as it cornered on different levels. Eric took her on the dodgems.....fun was had by all!
Scarlett had her first time on the beach at Barry Island with her mum and dad this week, so I've included some of her mum's pictures.
