Today I have set off on my family Summer Holiday. We are off to Weymouth in Dorset.
Weymouth has been my go to holiday place for years now and its turned into a traditional holiday for me and my family. My mum has been going since she was a little girl and so when she married my dad and had me and my brother it would be where we got took each year for our summer holiday.
I have such amazing memories of Weymouth. To many to write about. Some people would think we are mad for going back to the same place for the same holiday every year but for me I look back and I'm so glad I got took to this place each year as now its such a special place to me.
Here I am as a child on Weymouth Beach.
Weymouth has so much to do. It has a beautiful classic seaside with lovely sandy beaches with donkeys, it has a beautiful harbour and a Fort at the end of it. Stunning Scenery, Arcades and rides. Couldn't ask for much more for a holiday.
But one thing that always helps make it so special to me is having my family with me. To this day I have been going back to weymouth every year and sometimes twice and most the time we all go together.
This year as usual my parents will be meeting us there and so there will be me and my partner, Lily, and my Mum and dad. Unfortunately this year my brother couldn't make it.
This isn't Lily's first year in Weymouth. You could say she has been three times now. Once in my belly and then last year when she was around 8 months old and again at 10 months old.
The year she was in my belly it was lovely. I was 20 weeks pregnant and I felt my first real big kicks in Weymouth and it was Weymouth that me and my partner saw a little dolly with the name Lily on it and decided we liked that name.
Me and Chris and Lily in my Belly In Weymouth.But last year was Lily's real first holiday in Weymouth and she loved it. She wasn't walking or crawling at this point which did make it quite a relaxing holiday with no need to chase her around the beach. I expect this year will be completely different. But last year she just happily sat and experienced the sand for the first time.
Have your fingers crossed that the weather is great for us. We will see you in a week!
