We have just arrived home from a lovely visit to the UK. I loved catching up with my family and all the girls. I miss those guys so much! I had a fab girly night with my bezzie's, we drank wine and put the world to rights. My other lovely bezzie really spoiled me as she made a fantastic high tea for us to share, it was beautiful weather so we sat in the garden and enjoyed the sunshine.
|Smoked salmon sandwiches, fresh cream scones and cocktail flavoured french fancies. The perfect lunch time treat!|
Aren't the dogs beautiful? Mac and Betty.
We ate far too much and shopped too much but I managed to get the boys outfits for my brother-in-laws impending wedding and a pretty tankini for our holiday in the sun. The boys really enjoyed playing in Grandad's garden (that is one thing that I really miss about the UK as our garden is tiny). They were totally spoiled by Grandama and Grandad and the big lad celebrated his UK birthday with a party tea and minion cake.
|The big lad practiced his football skills in granddad's garden.|
|The little man got in on the act too but enjoyed posing for the camera more!|
|Loved them rolling down the hill, my brother and I used to do that too!|
|Some of the beautiful flowers in my dad's garden. He spends a lot of time there.|
|It was lots of fun. I even got in on the act!|

We had a fantastic day out at Whitby. We had lunch at Hadley's fish restaurant. Hubby and my parents ordered the fish, it was huge! But I ordered Scampi, which the big lad got a taste for so less for mummy. We worked off our lunch with a walk up the 199 steps to the abbey. The view from the top is spectacular! The weather was amazing and I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the beautiful scenery.
|I snapped these pictures from the car as we were travelling over the North Yorkshire Moors to Whitby. Stunning scenery.|
|Whitby, one of the most beautiful places I have visited. Love it here!|
|The boys enjoyed playing on the 2p machines and the little man even won a prize!|
|We climbed the 199 steps to the church and Abbey and of course counted all the way! The boys beat me back down.|
|The view is simply breathtaking. I hope one day my boys will appreciate it like I do!|
|It was a stunning day to capture the beauty of the Abbey.|
|This view makes it well worth the long climb.|
