Y4 - 300/365: Torquay or Bust!
We set out just after 11 this morning, albeit later than we intended, and we arrived in Torquay between 3 and half-past, heading straight for Tony & Emma's. It didn't take long at all for Ryan to warm to Tony as he introduced him to a bit of "can't catch me" with the hula hoop.
I suppose it helped that "Uncle" Tony had ice lollies and this was Ryan's very first time trying one. Yum!
When the guys had to go for a bit for their suit-fitting, we took a gander back to our hotel just a few miles away where Ryan went apesh*t running around the room testing all of the lights. Auntie Emma & Amy were right down the corridor from us, so they stopped in our room for a bit while we hung out and decided we'd return to Tony's.
Have I mentioned this is the view from their house?! How about that!
Tony even brought out his bearded dragon, Kink.
Ryan noticed he could see a bit of the seaside.
And what a perfect way to end the evening with a beautiful, summer sunset...
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
