First Day of the School Holidays

So here we are again, first day of the Summer holidays . The last school year has just flown by , I can't believe that when they go back the boys will be in years 4 and 1... scary stuff.
Anyway , the annual air show fell on the first day of the holidays so off we went and for once the sun was shining . We haven't seen much of it lately but it was most definitely a scorcher.

The only thing that Milo really wanted to do was to go see Optimus Prime from The Transformers , there were HUGE queues to go inside the little tent to get a certificate to say that you had actually seen him but he was quite happy with doing a bit of a queue jump just to get his photo taken.

I can't remember the last time I've seen so many people here it was totally heaving and to be honest I was quite worried that I'd lose one of the boys so I tried to stay on the outskirts of the throng so to speak. There weren't any queues to try the helmet on so we took full advantage of that.

Then a little play on the sand before heading off to get ice creams.

One of my favourites is always the parachutists , it amazes me how they all stay in line with all the twirling and going upside down. We didn't stay until the end of the show as it was just too busy so we didn't see the Red Arrows which are another fave and always leave me wanting to watch Top Gun!
The second day of the show is on today and every so often we can hear or sometimes see the planes going overhead but to be honest I don't think the boys would have wanted to go back again. So today has just been a bit of a lazy day.

Hope you're all having fun wherever you are.


  1. looks like you had a lovely day. we couldn't go this year but we saw the red arrows on their way to the show flying over the A1.

  2. How fun! Looks like you had a wonderful day. The boys sure look like they were having fun!
