8 years

This week me and Carly celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary!

We had Carly's childhood best friend over staying with us this weekend too, who also happens to be the Maid of Honour from our wedding :)

What better way to spend our time than a visit to the beach down at Alicante

Since we're still just outside of the holiday season it wasn't too hot or too crowded either. We sat under the palm trees in the shade and just had a relaxing chilled out day with the kids with a picnic on the beach and then took them to spend their pocket money on ice cream :)

Here's a photo of my entire world. without this little tribe I have no idea what I would do with myself. No matter what happens we always have each other and always will.

Although we were all sat under the palms for most of the time I spent a lot of the day going in and out of the sea with the kids and as a result I have ended up quite medium rare!

But I suppose that is the price to pay when a pastey white Brummy ups and moves to Spain, a bit of sunburn each year goes with the territory hahaha

Thanks for swinging by for Five on Friday, we hope you have a wonderful weekend
