With the sun shining we wanted to make the most of the day so we headed out early to go crabbing at Waldringfield.
It's a small beach but clearly the place to be as there were 5 other families crabbing by the time we left. We were only there for 20 minutes or so as Tidgy was getting grumpy. He was strapped into the buggy as he couldn't be trusted and he was also over-tired after a late night. We managed to catch a grand total of 65 crabs in that short time though and the children loved watching them all scuttle back into the water.
After that we drove down to Pakefield in the hope Tidgy would nap in the car but the other two were playing up, arguing and fighting and making lots of noise. We had lunch and headed onto the promenade, walking from Pakefield down to South Pier, Lowestoft for an ice-cream.
The children then got changed into their swimming cossies and had a run through the fountains. They had great fun but Tidgy was shivering the whole time. Every few minutes he'd head back to us to be snuggled up in the towel to warm up...and then as soon as he'd warmed up he'd go straight back into the water!
Tidgy finally fell asleep in the car but Girl and Middle fought all the way home so an early night was called for. They were in bed at 7pm but have only just gone to sleep 2.5 hours later. I dread to think what mood they'll be in tomorrow!
Looking at the photos though, I think they had fun :-)
