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!

Feeding The Ducks


Today we decided to test the waters and see how Oscar handled going out for the first time in a few days.
It's back to school tomorrow and we still aren't 100% sure if he's well enough to go back.


A trip to feed the ducks and a play in the park seemed like a perfect way to test the waters.

After we spent the morning breaking up our stale bread we dropped Noah off at Sam's (withdrawal symptoms had kicked in) and we headed off to the duck pond.

The ducks here are really friendly and as soon as you step out the car they are heading towards you to see what you have bought them.




The boys loved watched them gobble up the bread, I'm sure Ru wanted to try and stroke some of them at one point.











Once the bread was gone, we sat and watched them for a little bit longer and then headed off to the park, which is just around the corner from the duck pond.










They all had fun and Oscar handled it well, though he's taken himself off to the quiet room to have a lay down, so we shall see how tomorrow goes!
