On October 5th, Rebecca celebrated her 8th birthday. She wanted to go out for a meal, so we decided to go to one of our favourite family friendly pubs, just outside Saundersfoot.
Dave and Danny were in Poole for Gymnastics so it was to be a girly weekend. The evening before we had a “pamper night” at Nannys, with all the girls having their nails done.
Thanks to Izzy, the chocolate cake ended up quite cracked (little sisters!), but still tasted lovely thankfully!
We got to the pub and noticed quite a few changes. The big treehouse and slide were gone. There was just a giant Connect Four and a mini slide. This was quite disappointing and we realised that it wouldn’t entertain the kids for long.
The old track were the motors used to be was still there so we got our scooters out of the car and let the kids play on there.
We then had more bad news. The family arcade had also gone and had instead been made into a seating area. Also, they were only serving Pork Sunday Lunches, which for a party including two vegetarian adults and mainly vegetarian children was not suitable, so we had to move on.
I have to say that the pub looked lovely and I’m sure the food would have been great but it was so different to the family pub that we had been to since I was little so it wasn’t ideal for us.
We drove to Saundersfoot and went into a fish and chip cafe there. The food was lovely and lots of it but fish and chip shop food never tastes the same unless eaten on the beach!
We then walked down to the beach. Our first time here this year without immediately stripping off and getting into the water! Brrr!
The tide was already in at the side we normally sit so we explored by the steps instead.
We then took our bag of coppers (two pence coins) to the town arcade. When we won on the 2p machines and we heard the wonderful sound of coins all tumbling down, we were disappointed to win lots of tokens instead of more 2ps to play with.
We also won lots of tokens on the basketball game- not enough for a prize yet so we’ll need to collect them during our next visit too. We found out when Danny and Dave returned that they had also been to an arcade this weekend, during their visit to Pool so it must have been a weekend for it!
Back home, Rebecca asked me to take a photo of her modelling one of her new dresses.
Caitlyn always moans about having her photo taken. However as I wanted a photo of Rebecca, this meant she had to be in the photo too. You can see how Rebecca relaxes when her sister is in the photo with her, she loves being with and caring for her siblings.
So, it wasn’t the day we planned, but thankfully it all turned out to be a lovely day in the end!
Happy birthday, Rebecca! We love you so much! xxx
Meanwhile in Poole…
… the boy got Gold! Well done Dan the Man! So proud of you and love you lots too!
