Allen met us in Ascension. It was great to see him, 2 weeks felt too long for all of us. We went for breakfast and then headed put to the beach. The first one we visited was English Bay. All of the beaches were white sand and blue, blue sea. I've included photos of English bay - a bit rough, Long Beach - quite open and the black fish in Comfortless Cove - my favourite. We fed the fish fruit and crisps, I was worried as the fish went mad but the children weren't bothered. Jacob and Abi went in the swimming pool on base too. It was lovely and hot and not too buggy. We also went up Green mountain and saw bananas growing - I've put in a photo of J,A and Allen with a view from the top of the mountain. It was great to have a break between the flights and to relax on the beaches too. Allen did go into work but it was easy to entertain the children. We have booked to go again for a week in April and I am looking forward to it already!
The flight back was much emptier and non eventful. I had the pleasure of entertaining Abi for the whole flight although I did manage to watch most of The Hangover - very funny.
Landed to a few flurries of snow but it has been sunny, if freezing, since we've been back! We put up a trampoline in the garden today so I've put a photo of them on that too. Preschool starts back tomorrow, have already been in twice. As I stopped this to finish off cooking tea it started snowing which made Abi and Jacob rush outside! Now time for our favourite family TV show Total Wipeout and then bedtime. The clocks went on an hour here today as it's Spring so only a 4 hour UK time difference but a one hour DC difference. Oh yes, I got a Wii for my birthday, as I type Abi's busy playing golf on it! Jacob's banned, don't ask. I will do the yoga once they are at school. I'm the hula hoop champion of the family though, which I found entertaining.
