Kite Flying on Snettisham Beach


On Sunday we took the boys to a different beach, one in Snettisham. 
So still not very far from ours.

We hadn't been before so weren't too sure what it would be like, but as soon as we drove into the car park, we knew it was an amazing beach.

Sand dunes greeted us and the boys couldn't wait to climb them!


The twins were given kites for their birthday and have been desperate to fly them.
So a trip to the beach was the perfect opportunity to test them out. 


They were super easy to put together and Alex's bumblebee kite went straight up without any effort!
Oscars butterfly was a bit more tricky.
Why, we weren't too sure as they both look like they're the same design.




Once I Alex's up in the sky he soon took over laughing his head off at how high it was.

Oscar's took a few goes but eventually it got flight and stayed up for a bit before crashing down on my head.


Ru took over from Alex, as he wanted to go off and play with Noah in the sea.


Ru was pretty good at keeping the kite under control, we did think he'd just let go but he was more than happy to just stand there holding on watching it flutter around in the sky.


Once they were all finished with the kites, we left them with daddy and headed off to find the sea....
The twins decided they were walking to America!


We didn't quite get to the sea, as it was miles out and I made them turn around before the tides started to come in.

Even though they didn't quite make America they all had fun jumping in the sandy/muddy puddles on the way back.


Once back on dry land we headed back to the van to dust off our feet and grab an ice cream.






Ice cream, Kite flying and Puddle jumping = a perfect way to spend a Sunday!

Sandringham Woods

Yesterday we headed off to Sandringham with Jon's sister and Nephew Jenni and Sam, and met his mum there for Sunday walk and a chance for all the boys to have some fun away from the house.

Its only a ten minute drive from the house, so really and ideal place to take the boys when they need to run off some energy.


We started off in the play park, which was a playground with all the climbing frames made out of wood.
It really was rather pretty....specially for a playground.
Set in the middle of the woods, a little boys paradise!



Sam and Noah ran off and we found them huddled together on the swing, whilst the twins and Ru enjoyed playing on the slide and in the little hut.




Before they started to moan they were cold, we headed off into the woods.
Sam, Noah and the twins zoomed off and Ru plodded along with us, finding muddle puddles to get stuck in.




The boys all had a great walk and it was lovely to see them enjoying themselves!
We nearly even made a whole trip without one of them crying about something....all until it was time to leave and Alex kicked off a little!
Oscar fell in a freezing muddy puddle and even he didn't cry....and for our number one moaner that was pretty amazing!


They all attempted to climb a tree, but it was a bit on the slippy side and they all had extremely muddy wellies...minus Noah who apparently doesn't need wellies now he's 9!
Though after seeing Sam in his I'm sure he'll now want some.



Ru has always been happiest in the woods, whenever we take him to one he comes right out of his shell and his eyes light up.
The nursery that he's about to attend is in the middle of the woods and they often go out into it.
So I know he will love it there!




On the way back to the car, they all found some holes to jump into.


After they had finished hole exploring they had a race back to the cars.



It was a great way to spend a Sunday and I'm sure we will be back there before we know it.
I might turn it into a weekly thing for Ru as I'm trying to up my parenting game with him as I feel I've lost my mummy mojo and I need to actually do more with him and in return hopefully he will improve.
Nothing good comes from sitting indoors and moaning that he's bored and your bored.
(I had a right old moan last week at Jon and he told me straight I need to sort I out, So now I'm trying to be proactive and have a weekly list of things I can be doing with Ru but thats a whole other post!

What did you get up to at the weekend?
