Wales Holiday


This song title always runs through my head when I get to fly home to Wales and finally after 6 years, we got to go home for a long overdue visit. Mind you, this song always chokes me up and I can't stop tears from welling in my eyes :/ It's a song that we would sing whenever visitors/ loved ones leave Wales with the hopes that one day they will come back to Wales again.

I digress. 

I finally went home for a visit - sound the trumpets :) We went as a family, Jason came for the first week with me and the girls, Seren and Carys, and boy, was it a busy first week.

We tried to cram as much as we could even though it rained! Typical lol and divide our time with my older children who live there and visiting the sites. So with that, I hope you like my little picture montage ;)

 HERE WE ARE READY TO TAKE OFF - MIND YOU, JASON DIDN'T TAKE LONG TO FALL STRAIGHT TO SLEEP


WE GET TO MY HOMETOWN OF LLANELLI AND GO VISIT MY DAD

 SEREN WENT STRAIGHT TO HER GRANDPA FOR A HUG THEN CARYS FOLLOWED SUIT.



I COULDN'T GO HOME AND NOT VISIT MY MOTHERS GRAVE :( 


 WE WENT TO CYFARTHA CASTLE IN MERTHYR TYDFIL BUT FOUND OUT IT IS CLOSED ON MONDAYS! LIKE SAY WHAT BUT WE DID GO BACK THE FOLLOWING WEEK WITH MY ELDEST DAUGHTER JODI AND HER CUTE FAMILY.
