Very behind on blogs but here's our New Years Eve and Day pictures. As has become a tradition, we started the day celebrating at the Children's Museum in Portland. They do a 12pm balloon drop pajama party! Lots of museum fun first.
A quick snack!
We went from pretend cupcake making there to proper cake making at home!
And then new years tea!
And we waited for the big countdown on the BBC iplayer... celebrating UK time!
Big Ben fireworks.
The next morning I ran to the beach - an incredibly treacherous time as it was slippery but so worth it to watch the first sunrise of the year. I was solo this year as Raf has made it to 10:30 the previous night so was sound asleep. There was a line of clouds blocking the horizon so I ran on the beach a bit until the sun came into view. Well worth it.
and then back to enjoy some lovely breakfast.
And then the boys and I went sledging. So much fun on their rings. And SO fast as it was still so icy.
And whilst we were there we enjoyed the first sunset of 2017. A magical day.
