Hooky Day!!

Naughty naughty! But the sun was shining, the rest of the weeks forecast was rubbish, I had a 48hr stomach bug the days before and (enough excuses!) I just wanted a spur of the moment day away from routine. Why not aye? Tiger is due to start 'big school' in September so we might as well while we still can.

I called my mum to see if she fancied having a hooky day with us (she did) packed a small bag, filled the car up and off we went 'for our special adventure' (this is how I described our day out to Tiger, he was very excited!)

I wanted to be by the coast and Tiger and Beaux had been playing with a big plastic boat that morning in the bath so thought it would be nice to see some real big ships, what better place than Portsmouth (plus it would be educational too!) We had a fantastic day of boat rides, tours, fish & chips, shopping and ice cream. I am definitely for Hooky Days, summer days here we come!

The Mary Rose Ship!
Reminds me of the game Battleships, it was too perfect so decided to take at a slanty angle.
Looking out for Sea Monsters
Beaux adores Tiger!
We are so for Hooky Days!
