Lara's 6th Birthday & Our First Holiday of the Year!

Lara and Sophia had a joint birthday party at a soft play venue way back at the end of January, exactly half way between their birthdays, so when it came to Lara's big day we were free to go away on holiday for the week.  We did the same last year and I think this could well become a bit of a tradition as it's a great time to go away, after half-term and before the weather has warmed up enough for most people, so we can explore empty beaches, swimming pools and forest to our hearts' content.  Bliss.


We had a lovely week in the New Forest, dancing with giant squirrels ...





... building sandcastles and paddling on various beaches ...



... opening birthday presents ...




... making Nanny try on tiny pyjamas ...


... visiting our favourite farm ...



... kissing goats ...




... and donkeys ...



... playing at lots of playgrounds and one soft play on the day it rained ...
















... cuddling giant penguins, and adoring real ones...




... watching the fish and turtles go by...





... flexing our mini fashionista style muscles...




... and meeting the wildlife in the New Forest ...





The perfect small people's holiday!
