Our first holiday

On 17 September I went on my first holiday to Barcelona! Because mummy and daddy had so much to take for me we decided to drive…yep DRIVE! It took three days to get down there but we did some nice overnight stops on the way in the middle of France in a place called Limoges and then I met my grandad and Sue for the first time and we stayed in their bed and breakfast in a little village just outside Toulouse. On the third day we then set off on our adventure to Barcelona, where we’d stay there for a week. I wasn’t too bad on the journey but it was long and we had to make quite a few frequent stops. But when we got there it was absolutely lovely.

The view from our apartment was amazing with some really stunning sunrises and sunsets. We enjoyed the beach, going to Barcelona Zoo, the Picasso museum, playing on the swings, going to the aquarium and eating lots of nice food.

We then had the mammoth journey back but we didn’t stop at grandad’s on the way back so we did a full day of driving which was tiring. We made a stop in Orleans and then in Boulogne and we went to a huge aquarium called Naussica and I got to see lots of fishes and sharks.

By the time we all got back we were shattered. I did a lot of firsts while I was on holiday – here were some of the highlights:

  • I went on the ferry
  • I went to France for the first time
  • I went to Spain for the first time
  • I met my grandad and Sue
  • I started climbing
  • I went to a Michelin star restaurant (and screamed pretty much the whole time)
  • I went to an aquarium
  • I enjoyed lots of tasty croissants

King of the swingers

Phoebe loves the swings and you can tell just how much by how much her legs kick and move. I think she’s going to enjoy the swings for many years to come.
