I am super chuffed to be linking up with Fiona at Coombe Mill and her country Kids linky. I often see this linky and think I must join in and then I forgot or get too busy, doh! So while I am having some down time over August and completely suiting myself, this is the perfect time to join in.
Last week we went on holiday to Yorkshire and for the first couple of days the weather was not to great, but you can't let that stop you getting outside can you?
So we headed off to a local beach at Hornsea and enjoyed watching the life boats come in and combing the beach for precious stones that we could take home and treasure. Then what is a day at a cheesy English seaside town without a trip to the arcade and fish and chips on the sea front?
We found some lovely big stones on the beach and the kids insisted we bring them home, but I put my foot down and let them choose just 5 each. Then whilst I was painting the bathroom yesterday morning the girls had a lovely time colouring in some large white pebbles.
