Holiday to Rhyl

We set off for a mid week holiday to Rhyl.  We went to the same place as last year, with the same people.  On the way we stopped off for new school shoes for Caitlin and new trainers for Noah.  We arrived at the caravan just in time for some tea and then we got ready to go and try out the disco.  Nan had given them some money to spend so Austin picked a flashing, spinney thing and Caitlin picked a light up bubble gun.  I think Austin wished he had picked a bubble gun too!!

Noah picked a light up sword…

Caitlin and one of the girls we went with had a great time spinning each other around…

Austin and Noah were knackered and fell asleep on the seats…

We’d promised the girls could stay and play bingo so we left them sleeping while Caitlin had a go…

On the Tuesday  the weather was pretty bad so we went swimming and just played around in the caravans.  The kids were getting bored by the afternoon and the rain died down a bit so they went outside to scoot and play about.

Once they had burnt off a bit of energy we had tea and got changed for the disco.  Tonight was the hula hoop competition so they all entered.  Noah insisted on spinning his around his neck!!!!

Even Austin had a go…

Noah hadn’t managed to charm the entertainers this year, so only Caitlin and 2 of the other girls made it through to the semi-finals…

Caitlin and Z were knocked out and Katie made it to the finals but didn’t win, although she came very very close!  They then did some dancing…

…before we headed back to the caravan in torrential rain.  The wind was shaking the caravan and so it wasn’t a great nights sleep.  When we woke up we discovered there had been gale force winds so strong that they had grounded a cargo ship that was loading on the coast just by our caravan park!!!

With the bad weather continuing we decided to go to the arcades on the sea front to pass the morning.  Nanny had given us loads and loads of 2p’s so we spent a while in there playing the 2p drop machines.  We won some little campervans, a beetle and a keyring.  We then went out for tea before heading to the disco for the night’s entertainment!  Caitlin and Z did more spinning and gymnastics at the side of the dance floor…

Noah and Austin also tried to join in…

Noah eventually got the hang of the headstands…

The weather was slightly better on our walk home that night!

On the Thursday it was looking much brighter but was still a bit cold so we went swimming again which they all loved.  It was so much better this year now that Caitlin and Noah can both swim and Austin is confident in the water with his belt on.  After some lunch we went out on the scooters…

..we went around a little fishing lake just by the caravan park…..

After scooting we got changed ready for the disco and went out for tea where Noah showed off his jalapeno eating skills!!!!!!!!!!!

At the disco Noah counted the rest of his 2p’s to see if he had enough to go on the 2p drops again!!!  He was fascinated by his money all week, I think he really loved having his own money to spend!

After spending his money he got to have his photo taken with Captain Marine…

..before it was time for the talent show!!!  The girls had decided completely alone that they were going to enter the talent contest and signed themselves up.  We had tried to give them some ideas but they seemed very keen on doing wheelbarrows!!  And so that is exactly what they did…wander around the stage doing wheelbarrows!!!!!!!!!!

Needless to say they didn’t win!!

Friday was home time so we emptied the caravans and went for one last play at the play ground.  Noah had discovered there was a soccer school and so I said he could go to that before we left.  It was quite cold and as usual Noah just stood about with his hands in his pockets not knowing what to do…he really needs someone to show him how to play football!!

Austin had a great time playing with the bark chippings!!!!!!!

Noah then got hit on the head by the football and so that was the end of his soccer school….and we went home!  Everyone else had already left so there was nothing to stay for….  We had a fantastic time and will hopefully go again next year!!
