... Hunstanton Lighthouse ...

On Sunday we decided to pop into Hunstanton for a family Costa Coffee trip, something that doesn't happen often as usually its only me and Jon who going into Costa but seeing as we had nothing planned it sounded like a good way to spend the morning.


The boys were brilliant and they all enjoyed a chocolate baby chino and were very nicely given a flake and a marshmallow!
Which I think made their day.
Jon and I enjoyed our normal coffees and it was nice to be out spending some time with the boys away from the house.


As it was such a beautiful day we decided we would go and see the lighthouse.
We've only ever driven past it before so it was nice to get out and stretch out legs and let the boys run riot which I got some snaps!


The boys all played chase and whilst running after Ru we met a lovely couple with some gorgeous dogs that we all made friends with.


After a while the boys all started to complain their hands were cold so we headed back to the van and drove home to warm up and watch Cars 3.


It was actually one of the best Sunday's we've had in a long while and it didn't cost more than £10.
The boys all had fun, and it was nice to just get out and about rather than spending another Sunday moaning about being bored and not having anything fun to do.

Both Jon and I decided we needed to make a thing of Sundays and just getting out in the morning to somewhere local like our beach or to Hunstanton is something we really need to start doing as we all benefit from it and then Sunday afternoons are really easy going!

Clearing The Christmas Cobwebs Away


After being in for the last few days, we decided to go exploring and clear away the cobwebs!
We noticed a sign for Castle Rising on the way to Sainsbury's the other week, so I gave it a google and decided the boys would probably really like running around there.

The last castle ruins we took them too, they were less than impressed as it was only a wall that was left!

Frosty and cold we all made sure to wrap up warm, gloves, hats and cosy boots were definitely in order!


As soon as we got into the car park the boys got excited, they could see the castle and were desperate to get inside!
The frosty/misty weather really added to the atmosphere!




They all loved being able to get inside and climb the spiral staircases and find hidden rooms with little nook and crannies.


Castle Rising has been around since the 12th Century so its full of history.








The sun was hidden behind the fog and Rupert kept pointing it out asking if it was the moon!



After we had been inside the castle we went and walked where the old wall would have been.
It was very high and I'm sure if the weather had been clear, we would have been able to see for miles!




We all enjoyed getting out but we more than happy to get home to warm up with some hot chocolates and a big cup of coffee for me!
