Thank you so much for all your good wishes and here I am safe and sound back at home. We have had a fantastic holiday and I am pleased to say that Isabella (my Great Grand-daughter) was very very good.
But before I tell you some of her exploits here is the winner of yesterdays Friday Freebie card and the name chosen is you ...
the card is yours so please can you email me
with your postal address and the card will be on its way to you
I hope you will like it and please let me know when it arrives.
Isabella was so excited on the plane when it was ready to fly and said that this was much faster than her daddy drove his car.
She was small the first time she flew and didn't remember the experience but she was thrilled this time and as we went faster all she could say was "WOW" and watched through the window aswe soared up into the sky
The weather was lovely the first and second days we where in Portugal but the third day dawned cloudy ... but still warm.
They had lots of water toys that children could sit on and we tried to get her to choose a nice little floating flower or maybe a turtle.
Or it was "Oh! look Isabella her is a lovely little Dolphin but she was having none of that ... she wanted the seven foot long crocodile and she would not be swayed from it.
It seats two children and of course she shared the fun with two friends that she had made within minutes of us being there.
We played in the sand and paddled in the sea as the water was a bit cold for her but she really enjoyed jumping over the waves and did what most little girls do ... screamed every time she jumped .
We had a picnic in the sand and then she wanted to go back to the hotel pool.
Both Vickie and I were impressed with her fearless approach to the water and with arm bands on she was very confident in the water.
We coaxed her into jumping in from the steps and eventually in off the side of the pool and once she knew she could do it there was no stopping her.
Later back at the hotel she was invited to a kids dinner and no adults where allowed to go
So she wore her prettiest dress and had her hair done by Nana Vickie and off she went to her dinner and disco ..... four years old and met her friends in the bar !!
Do you like the pose for our benefit ?? And just look at those red toe nails and the rosy cheeks.
Day three we went to the Zoo Marine and had a lovely day. Vickie and I thought that the Dolphins were amazing and appreciated all the had work that had gone into training them. Isabella was not impressed !!
She won first prize in the mini disco though and was given a certificate that I am going to frame for her bedroom.
We had a really happy holiday and Isabella wants to come away with her Nana Vickie and Great Gran again next year
More tomorrow ...
