We spent three days on the south coast recently - our first real seaside holiday together! We were with my parents, visiting family, and we had a very special time messing about on the beach, plopping pebbles into the sea, eating ice cream, running on the pier and just generally doing all those British seaside things I remember from my own childhood.
Living the dream!
One day we went on the pier and OB saw a toddler's 'roller coaster' with cars and trucks going round and round on their track, and even up and down a little slope. He wanted to 'drive cars!' as soon as he saw them, but I was worried that he'd start crying to come off the minute it started.
Eventually I relented and let him choose his car. I needn't have worried - he loved it! Needless to say, we went on it again pretty soon afterwards :)
