After a day at work and a two hour drive with no sleeps, despite leaving to try and achieve sleep, what I thought it would be an easy car to pre-erected tent (thanks friends) transfer turned into another late night for Evie.
Luckily for me a late night meant a relatively late start and we were lucky with the weather as we started our day with breakfast
Louis was patient with Evie’s version of ‘ball’
And we stopped by for a drink in Sam and Lucy’s porch!
Lunches packed, we walked to the nearby Beadnell Beach, a lovely beach of golden sand, for plenty of fun despite the increasing cloud cover. A good kip needed to prepare for playing!
Then some food to get the energy reserves up ready for some serious beach time. Time to don the wetsuits.
Along with all the other kids, Evie’s buddy Oliver was there to, so they had great fun running around and playing with the others.
They then ‘helped ‘ Jessie, Louis and Josie to make a swimming pool- Evie and Oliver mainly helped by filling it in!
After the tide finally won and the swimming pool was gone, it was time for a snack and to think about heading back for dinner.
A little time for digging first, just incase there was any good to be found.
Dinner came in courses, and she ate a little before getting too excited….
And took herself to the park….
Where she decided to take herself up the slide, before she realised I was there!
All the sea air and running around and for once it was an early night!
After packing up the tent we all headed to Alnwick Castle.
First stop – the dungeons!
A very impressive building from outside. The state rooms inside also very impressive. And still lived in. hanging out in the courtyard! waving at the horse on his knight!
Then playing (or stealing) the ten pin bowls
Who is this? Princess Lucy and Princess Evie!
Then time to make her magic wand. First to choose the magic string
To tie it around the stick and the feather
And en to sprinkle it in pixie dust
On to broomstick riding lessons at broomstick school.
The broomstick tutor has a one to one with Evie!
But Evie got bored of those so wandered off to see the rest of the castle whilst everyone else learned to fly.
Finally it was time to leave and go home. One last glance of this fine castle, Evie was already fast asleep!
A great fun couple of days.
