Memory Box

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 :)

  1. My kids love those seaside and pier rides too - they usually end up crying when they get off because they want to stay on! Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

  2. The fair ground is so exciting for children if they can overcome their anxieties. My two also love all the fun of the fair.

  3. That's wonderful - it's so pleasing to know that he's feeling safe and secure enough to try new things and to have fun. What a fab memory!
