Apologies if you are a Face Book friend as you will have already seen these!!
Yesterday my sister and I took our children to Great Yarmouth for the day, and what glorious weather we had too!! Hence me coming home looking somewhat like a lobster!!!
We had only just arrived and thought we would head along the promenade towards the Amazonia reptile place my nephews love going to. When we saw a crowd gathering on the opposite side of the road. Curious as to why we wandered over to have a look, only to find out that 'This Morning' was coming 'live' from the beach wow!!! Couldn't get any really good piccies but here are Brian Dowling (Big Bro winner, twice!) and Amy Childs (only way is Essex).
we hung around for a little while but went off for a wander knowing that they were going to be there for another couple of hours if we wanted to go back! Sis took her boys and Hollie to Amazonia but I'm not interested in reptiles.
Here's a picture of Hollie holding a tortoise, she also touched a snake, baby crocodile and a lizard!
Lillie and I went back to see what was going on with the This Morning bunch!
This time we went beach side, we couldn't really see what was going on on the beach, but we stood right by the barrier/walkway where they kept walking past to get on and off of the beach!
Lillie had her picture taken with Imogen Thomas
Matt Johnson is right in the centre of this piccie! He reports from the 'hubb' on the show and also present OK tv on channel 5. So disappointed though, I decided that instead of chancing the odd photo I would record the 'stars' using my camera, Matt came right up to my lense and waved at it was there for what seemed like quite a while, and my bloody camera wasn't recording ggrrr...!!
and here are 3 of the Overtones who sang/performed on the beach! what a handome bunch they are!!
the girls had a donkey ride! these 2 are my fave pictures!
Hollie's donkey was called Max and Lillie said "I know what mine is called" and laughed, as hers was called Willy (dirty child!).
Then no visit to Great Yarmouth is complete without a little while spent in Joy Land the mini fun fair, they just HAVE to go on the snails!!! We used to go on them as children it was the highlight of our trip!!!
at the end of the pier there are a few more rides, the kids love the slide, you pay once and go on it as many times as your legs will carry you up the steps!! I think the girls and their cousin managed at least 10 goes!! They had a blast! This is the only photo they came down side by side, all the other goes someone was always in front or trailing behind!
and finally, my dear little baby girl decided she would really like to have her ears pierced whilst we were there! My fault as I just happened to say "oh Hollie you could have yours ears pierced next door" (jewelery shop next door to the gift shop the others were in). That was it she said yes yes yes, I explained that it would hurt and that she would have to have both ears done however much the first one hurted, but she was set on it! She very bravely sat on the stool, felt tip dots alined, first ear lined up and bang, done, bless her her little face changed and she started to well up but very quickly bang, ear 2 done and it was over. She did shed a few tears which is obvious I remember it hurting, but after a while she said "it doesn't even feel like I've got them in, I LOVE them!".
Unfortunately later on in the day, she fell off of a stool in an arcade, as she was in the air the stool flipped over and she landed straight onto one of the legs and really hurt her tummy, bless her she sobbed and when later re-living it she told her sister that she actually couldn't breathe when she did it! Love her little heart, I nipped into a little shop on the way back to the car and got some calpol which seemed to help, but she says her tummy still hurts today which is understandable.
We left home at 8.45am and after dropping Lillie off at Nannie and Grandads for a few days sleepovers, we arrived home after 11pm.
Long day but a good one (even with the little mishap!).
