Our First Holiday As A Four- Part Two.

on Wednesday, 29 May 2013.

Yesterday I posted the first part of our first holiday as a family of four to Humble Bee Farm in Yorkshire.

I took hundreds of photos of our trip but here are a few more of them.


A general theme of the holiday was ice creams- whether that was her own or sharing her Daddy's!


We visited a gorgeous little fishing village called Robin Hood's Bay.



Looking out to sea.


Before having more laughs at home in the hot tub.



We went for dinner and a walk and we saw these little beach shacks.


Sat watching television by the fire.


We went to Whitby for the day and our good friends came along too with their lovely little girl.


The Whitby beach huts.




Our friends decided to stay the night in one of the farm's wigwams so we had a nice BBQ that evening.


We went into York for the day and ate lunch at our friend's bar.  How shiny are this little girl's beautiful eyes?  She is growing up too fast.


We did this.  A lot.


And spent a lot of time lazing in bed cuddling.


This girl became a lot more vocal while we were away- chatting and cooing at everything and everyone.


While this pair rarely spent any time apart.


We went into Scarborough a couple of times.


Mads loved the 2p slot machines.


All in all it was a wonderfully relaxing break and just what we needed.

We switched off our phones, relaxed and enjoyed each other's company and talked lots.  

We enjoyed our girls, had three hour naps in the day all snuggled up in bed, giggled and drank Prosecco in the hot tub until late at night, and lay in until 9am most mornings.

We chased Daisy and Bluebell the farm goats around, ate far too much food and all came down with ridiculously bad colds.

But above all we just had fun.

Our first holiday as a four.

    Ahhh, these photos are making me feel all nostalgic again. So many familiar places from when the Mr and I first got together. We clearly need to go back.
    It looks like you had an amazing break. It's such a great area to take kids as there is so much to see and do. I'm so glad you had a wonderful first holiday as a four. x

    Looks like THE perfect family holiday. So so good.

    Also, you visited my neck of the woods! Did you enjoy Whitby? Have fish and chips?

    Oh it looks like you had a great time and it brings back some wonderful memories of when I went when I was pregnant with Moo.

    I love York and have been many times, I so want to take the children.

    Absolutely stunning photos. Looks like you had the perfect British holiday and I can totally understand Mads - when it comes to ice-cream and 2p machines :) x

    aren't those beach huts/shacks just a wonderful array of rainbow colours?
    more beautiful photos - LL is so stunningly beautiful in the shot where you describe her eyes as being so shiny - it made me gasp and she is not my own daughter. and Mads in the hot tub - oh she is just giggling so much and you can see it in her eyes too. xx

    Gorgeous photos - how amazing is that cosey fire and hot tub! Love the pics of Mads in your friends lap - I thought she had gone for his ear when I first glanced at it. I LOVE Whitby. If I lived there I would probably be the size of an elephant from eating fish and chips and mushy peas daily!
