Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!

Had a fantastic day out today on the beaches of North Berwick. I’ve only been once before and it was a grey and miserable day, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover what a fantastic seaside town it is in the sunshine.

We walked along the beach, collected shells and played in rockpools.

It’s such a beautiful place.

We had lunch at The Grange

… then followed it up with ice cream!

Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day out!

Deep Sea World

Yesterday we went to Deep Sea World in North Queensferry.

It’s not a huge place and is quite pricey but we’ve always found it great when the kids are very small (like Ben is now) because they find the fishes so interesting and can get so close to them.

Ben was very excited and kept showing us that the tanks were full of fish.

They also have a small pool with seals. This one was enjoying the warm weather…

… as did we!

Ben’s First Words

I’m not sure what Ben’s very first word was (though ‘mama’ is in with a good shout), but here are his first words. He’s built up a good little vocabulary.

‘Mama’

‘Dada’ (only recently)

‘Tada’ (Czech for ‘here’)

‘Jeste’ (Czech for ‘more’)

‘Hiya!’

‘Baba’ (bye-bye)

‘Ne!’ (Czech for ‘no’)

‘Go!’

‘There’ (when he brings something to show you).
