Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together.

It was my twin girls birthday this weekend, they were 8 on the Sunday, but as per usual we drag it out and have lots of fun!I even put a vlog together!

Saturday 6th May 2017

Today we had friends and family over to celebrate the twins 8th birthday. Kevs family came down from Wiltshire to us, so we spent few hours around the house and garden chilling out, playing in the garden and opening cards!

Then our close friends popped over to see them, and open their presents. Then a perfect opportunity to play with the gifts!

We always have a treat dinner when the family come down, but as this weekend was special a trip to Frankie and Bennys! I didn’t realise Lily had done this with her eyes!!!

Look at this candy shop pudding!!

Then Grandma and Grandad popped over…..with MORE cake!!

What a lovely day they have had, I kissed them goodnight as 7yr olds. I cannot believe they are 8yrs old!


Sunday 7th May 2017 – Happy 8th Birthday Lily & Sofia

Good morning!

I asked the twins what they wanted to do on their birthday,  their response was an Arcade!! So off to Southsea we went, and enjoyed some lovely family time together.

Fish and Chips on the beach for dinner, and stone throwing.

Can’t go to the beach without a visit to the sweet shop! Good choice in sweets!

I purchased these balloons for them on Friday as a surprise! They were SO happy with them, and had great fun getting these photos!

Happy Birthday little ladies, we love you very very much and thank you for being such wonderful, happy little girls. Don’t ever stop.

Please take a look at our vlog of Sunday!

If you don’t already follow me on Instagram I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I put them together into a Photobook.

  1. Massive congratulations! Your balloon shots are gorgeous what a great idea. I love the shots with Grandma and Grandpa. The arcade looks fab and what a great choice, my boys love the 2p machines at the arcades and we always have to visit when we go to the UK. What a gorgeous family you have! Thank you for joining me at #PointShoot

    • Ah thank you very much, I never set out to set it up for photos like this, but once I decorated the room I thought yes this is a perfect photo place!!

  2. Happy Birthday girls! That looks like an amazing weekend of festivities and can’t beat fish and chips on the beach (one of the few things we really miss!!!!)xx

  3. Ahhhh happy birthday to your twin girls looks like they had a lovely time and absolutely loving the photo booth style pics! 🙂

  4. Wow that looks like an action packed weekend. Happy birthday to the twins I am sure they had a fantastic time! Wow I didn’t realise Frankie and Benny’s did candy shop desserts that looks like fun.

  5. What an amazing weekend! We do the number balloons too – that way when we look back at birthdays, I won’t have to be like my parents and guess how old we all were! P.S. I want that dessert!

    • Lol!! Yes I always count the candles on the cake to find out how old I was! This is the 1st year with these balloons but I have loved having them about
