Bath, England

May 7, 2024:  Bath was the final stop on our England roadtrip. We just did one night here, and really only had a half day here to explore because we flew out early the next morning. It wasn't enough time, but we spent our time well! This was one of the cities that Riley's dad served his mission in so we had a lot of good recommendations and just loved walking the streets and seeing amazing architecture. It was definitely a city we could spend more time in. Riley caught a show that evening and me and the kids had a nice night and view of some hot air balloons and loved watching the sunset from our roof top.  

She's a little daddies girl these days :)

Luke found a shell, and Clay gathered sticks

we climbed out the window and enjoyed some hot air balloon and had some laughs

HOWW? These street artist are so cool sometimes. 

We love going to Evensong where we can, this one was really pretty inside and surprisingly the kids were more reverent in here than they are on Sundays at our place. 

May or may not have bribed them all with sushi to go to Evensong with us. 
A nice sunrise on the early ride to airport home. A nice send-off!

Crackington Haven, Cornwall

May 6th, 2024- Our last night in Cornwall was in a place called Crackington Haven. We didn't know much about the location before booking, but was a decent price in a good place along our roadtrip back towards Bath and so went for it. We were so impressed and thought it was truly was a little haven. We had such a good time here and loved our little cottage we stayed in. We took a short hike to the beach from the cottage that was about a mile walk and really enjoyed the nature. The beach was fun and spent a couple hours playing and hiking around above and then walking the mile back to our cottage for the night. Riley had picked up some meat and eggs from a local shop and cooked us up and nice breakfast before heading on the road again which hit the spot. 

A lot of dandelion seeds harvested by Luke

It was so fun watching these two play together and really stands out when I think about our time here. Just seeing them laugh and chat together and run away when the big waves come for them. 

And of course Lucy and her flowers. 

Dreamy tennis courts. 
Crackington Haven Pub dinner- the only place to eat in town.

Enjoyed Golden Hour on our walk back to the place. 

Miss Lucy enjoyed the walk back while finishing off dinner leftovers-per usual. 

A day in the life of Luke & Clay.
