On Sunday I was off from work and so as it was a nice day we decided to get them out for a while, and so we decided to take them to the beach by bus. Once DD1 buys another universal car seat I can take the twins out in the car, until then I cannot. The bus is not a venture to undertake alone as the twin buggy needs folding which means moving the bags off the bottom, so to hold onto the bags, the twins and carry the buggy onto the bus is impossible. Dinky was not overly keen on the bus and cried when we took her on and she sat on DD3 knee, where as Minky was quite happy to sit on the seat next to me and chat away and sing wheels on the bus and other songs as we went into the town. Bob was not to keen on coming but he was told tough luck he was having to come.
So we headed for the beach to start with. Minky was inpatient to get out and started playing straight away. Dinky on the other hand was not keen on getting out, so we unstrapped her and got on with playing. As soon as the tubs and spades came out she was not long in joining in with the fun.
|to start she would only stand|
|then she would sit on the bag we had breought|
|he was quite happy to play straight off|

We were digging holes and standing Minky in and burying his feet, we then buried his legs when he was sat down, Dinky wanted nothing to do with being covered.
|she preferred the rake|
|look Grandma has a camera, I must smile|
|Bob played as well|
We took a wander down to the waters edge, Minky was not for getting his wellies wet, where as Dinky was happy to let the waves wash over her wellies. Always amazes me the difference in them.
|We wandered back up to the digging.|
|Dinky quite happy to wander free|
At this point we decided to head up to the play park and have lunch and then a play.
|leaving the beach|
The play park, as usual was busy, but we were lucky and grabbed a table as somebody left.

We had kept an eye on the time as there is only one bus an hour and we knew it was getting near nap time so we headed back for the bus. Minky sat quiet and half asleep on the bus.
where as Dinky would only sit on Auntie H knee
When we got home the twins went for a sleep and Auntie H and Bob did some colouring.
Poor Auntie H was exhausted at the end of the weekend, but had had lots of fun.
