Cornwall holiday

How lovely is Cornwall! No one ever told me it was that pretty!We spend 5 days there with the whole family and had an amazing time.
Yep, the whole Spratley clan was there, even the South African ones which was super fun because we don't get to see them that often.
We all had this super cool Scandinavian cottage with hot tub!!! Bubbles, ohhh. Super fun!
Every morning ducks waddled over to our cottage and Emily happily gave them their breakfast. See the one with the white patches? That was her favourite duck and she called him "WhiteyOh". She made sure he got the biggest pieces of bread.
                                                                                                                                                                       


             We found a beautiful spot by the sea, it was a bit windy and the sea was quite rough, so the kiddies didn't like looking over the edge of the wall....but the view was amazing! 
                                                         
Some of the clan....and a photo now proves that I am shorter than an eleven year old...nice!
On our way to Padstow  Emily got carsick (poor munchkin), luckily little cousin Nina didn't feel like sitting in her pram so Emily could sit down for a bit while we went for a walk to another beach.
Dylan enjoyed playing on the beach...only got wet up to his knees (which is an achievement, normally he's wet up to his waist!) and by the time we left had enough sand in his wellies to fill up a sandbox!
Hot Tub!!!
Me and Dylan who had eaten way to much of Holly's chocolate birthday cake
Did you know ducks can jump? Yes, look that's a jumping duck right there!
The whole clan apart from Emily "who didn't want her picture taken" (insert stroppy voice of a 5 year old there!)
We visited The Eden Project which was amazing!
My little surfing girl in the tropical rain forest biome
Amazing view from the top platform in the biome. Super scary to go up to the top but so worth it!
Do I want to know more about chocolate? What kind of question is that?? OF COURSE I DO!!!!
Hmmmm, not what I imagined. This is the inside of a cocoa pod....looks more like one of those icky grubs to me. Luckily it turns to yummy chocolate beans when roasted
visiting Land's End...looks like no one was ready for this photo!
Our evenings were spend eating (Lot's of sausages for some reason),laughing, playing board games and spending time with the family. The kids loved playing with their cousins and had the time of their lives. Sadly all things end and we had to go back home.
Bye bye Scandinavian cottage, bye bye hot tub, bye bye Cornwall....hope we get to come back soon!
