I thought I would share a few photos from last weekend and the things we actually got up to during the bank holiday!
Emma and I had the opportunity on Saturday to spend some time with one of Vince’s cousins and her family who were camping locally. We do not have the opportunity to see each other very often, but when we do our little girls are always very pleased to see each other and play together so nicely, it is a joy to watch!
Try as I might to snap some nice photos of them together, I was mainly capturing the backs of their heads as just about everything is more interesting than me with a camera! Ha!
On Sunday Vince had an unexpected day off work, so we spent a lovely morning at our church and then a lazy family afternoon at home… Bliss!
Monday saw our town turn into absolute mania. On the May bank holiday this year over 30,000 motorcyclists descend on our seafront and the old town celebrates Jack in the Green – an old festival based around the green man (above).
We were visited by my mum and her partner and we took a picnic up to the green to watch the parade. It was good fun with lots of morris dancers and drum groups which Emma thoroughly enjoyed watching, she was quite upset when we reached the end of the parade!
After we had eaten we took a stroll around the packed west hill green and unashamedly took a good look at all the people dressed for the occasion!
People really go all out for the day! It was an interesting and fun few hours out but then truthfully it was just too busy for my little one who was already starting to flag so we headed back home. But being the homebody that I am I was’t too upset!
All in all I found it a very enjoyable bank holiday weekend, the only shame being my lovely husband having to work through so much of it. But I could never be ungrateful that he is able to work as hard as he does for us <3
Well I’ll be back later lovelies! Hopefully with a crochet pattern for a little flower garland! 🙂
