I’m late posting this months post of our family photos, because its been the school holidays and I only get to work in the evenings once the girls are asleep and there have been other more urgent work that has needed to be done. I did think maybe I would just miss a month, but I have the most beautiful photos of us from our recent holiday to Crete, and I want to remember them. As after all my blog is for my memories.
August as always you were the crazy busy month that you are every year for us. With Alice, Andy and Holly’s birthday it certainly keeps me on my toes and there is always a lot of cake to eat. We had a fantastic holiday to Crete, it was our first time going abroad since Alice started school and it was worth the wait. The girls loved it all and it was the most relaxing holiday we’ve had. Just lazy days by the pool!
It was nice to have Andy home for two weeks of August, he always plans his two weeks to make sure he is off work for both the girls birthdays and it worked really well this year, with Holly’s birthday falling on the bank holiday weekend he had an extra day off. We did a trip to Legoland for Alice’s birthday and a family barbecue for Holly’s birthday. Which they both requested.
It’s been lovely having the girls home and I’m really lucky that I don’t have to share them with school for their birthday’s. We’ve had days out, days at home. Far too many ice creams and lots of memories made. It really is my favourite month of the year.
My photos this month were taken on our holiday to Crete. A couple of nights we wandered down to the beach which was at the bottom of our hotel. The sunsets were amazing and the girls had never seen anything like it before. For me this is what holidays are all about.
