A Lovely Holiday

No card to share today, so I thought I would show you some photographs that we took on our holiday.

Those of you who visit me regularly will know that I was quite poorly the week before last, well hubby decided to take us all on holiday to Devon for a week.  We loaded up both cars and hubby, me, the boys, Matt's girlfriend and my Mum all headed down to Devon.

The weather was perfect for most of the stay, in the low twenties - the boys even went in the sea!  It was a bit wet on the last day so we managed to fit in a little shopping and went ten pin bowling - even Mum had a go!

This was the first day on the beach - you can see how fabulous the weather is

My Mum and Laurence feeding the Giant Tortoise at Exmoor Zoo

Matt feeding the Wallabies at Exmoor Zoo

Matt and Gemma (Matt always has to pull a daft face!)

The dinosaurs and train were at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park

These were all at Clovelly - I still can't believe that my 86 year old Mum managed to walk all the way down the hill - we went back to the top in a land rover

This is Matt helping Mum at ten pin bowling.

We all had a fabulous week and now I am back fully refreshed and ready to go.

Thank you for looking.

How nice to see some familypictures, seems like you've had a lovely time. Your boys are big! I think they are bigger than you are haha. Wow, you're mum is really "fit" being able to walk all that way down the hill. Nice to read you all had a good time! Hugs from the Netherlands,

Hi Pauline, so glad you are feeling better, looks like you all had a fabulous time especially your Mom, good on her. That's my favourite part of the woods down Devon & Cornwall, would love to move there lol!

Sorry never got round to your post yesterday but it was a beautiful card, loved the design and how you placed the ribbon, just gorgeous.

Love & Hugs
