Water Fun

Back in Bexhill we got to spend a lot of time with my Dad. We also got lots of chances to play in the water. Quinn got to go swimming for the first time. We went to this great pool that was shallow at one end and had a wave machine, plus spouts of water that were lots of fun. Quinn was a little apprehensive at first but ended up having a great time. He loves the water!
This was my Dad's first time to meet his grandson. They had a lot of fun together and Quinn even got a bath from his Granddad.

We went to visit a family friend at Sovereign Harbour and ended up taking a boat tour around the harbour. There were a ton of jelly fish in the water. If you make the picture above bigger you can see them better.






We were lucky enough to stay at a hotel about a two minute walk from the beach. We got to make sand castles and play in the water. We even got to get ice cream. Two of my top favourite activities.

The bright glare you see is just my white skin, but if you ignore that you can see Quinn playing in the Atlantic Ocean for the first time :-)

We had some down time at the hotel one evening and decided to play bananagrams. In honor of us loving Harry Potter AND being in England we decided to play using only words related to Harry Potter. We just had to show of how well we did...even if we did have to share a few tiles in the process.

We're big bananagrams fans ourselves, we're so impressed with how well you guys did with the Harry Potter theme!

The funny thing was, I got Dumbledore and Horcrux, along with a couple of other shorter words, without having to peel or share!
