Yesterday we travelled up to Port Stewart to meet up with Karen and Paul (in-laws) and their 4 boys! We got to meet the youngest and newest nephew, Levi! What a sweety =) We had lunch at their little holiday home, then after changing nappies, feeding a baby and the like, we made our way to the beach! It was a gorgeous day, a tad chilly if your weren’t moving about though! The water was cold but the boys loved it! Micah, Noah and Jonah went straight down to the water and splashed about. Andy joined us and thankfully has a few photos from his phone that we’ll try and post sometime! Our camera (lens, I hope) isn’t working so no photos from me for now! We stayed at the beach for a few hours and had a good time. Andy went in the water with Noah and Micah for a while, getting up to waist level or so. Then they dug and dug and dug to hearts content! Well Andy did anyway!! I read my book most the time and chased Ezra or Jacob down. The cars are parked on the beach, so there were cars driving in and out constantly between us and the water….it was hard enough for us adults to remember to look for cars before walking so I know the kids had a hard time remembering too. You couldn’t hear them (the cars) at all. All you heard was the ocean! It was really nice!!
We went back to the house and got some take-aways for tea. Andy and I opted for chinese while the rest had fish n chips (sausages, chicken nuggets and chicken burgers too)! Simon, Esther, Sarahand Isaac joined us for tea as well!! Us brothers/sisters and spouses had quite a nice chat in the kitchen while nana and papa kept the kids entertained in the lounge! It was great and we had a hilarious moment were I don’t think I’ve laughed like that in a long while. I also had the oppurtunity to spit my coke out on the my husband and the floor! I couldn’t even breathe and I can’t even tell you what was really funny b/c it was one of those, ‘you had to be there’ moments! But it was a great ‘craic’ as they would say here in Norn’ Ireland!!
So today we all slept in a wee bit as we only got home at 11 last night! Thankfully all the boys were in PJs and transferred straight to bed with no problems! We are all off to Simon and Esther’s for a belated 30th bday party for Simon. Simon and his brothers and some friends are playing some footie before hand as well!
